We're in D.C.! It's a beautiful city. This morning, we were lucky to get a tour of the White House. It's fairly limited, but the rooms that are on the tour are really pretty. They have some amazing paintings. Today was the barbeque for all the spellers and their families. I've met a lot of new people! Tomorrow I have my Round One test (on the computer) at 9:30. That's the biggest part of what lets you qualify for Semifinals. It's 50 words long, but only 25 will count. I won't know my score and won't be allowed to say a word about the test until Wednesday night, after the spoken rounds. I've been studying hard, so hopefully I'll do well. Good luck to all the other spellers taking the test tomorrow! ~Anja Beth P.S. To my friends in MN- Miss you!
