YOU GO GIRL

Six year old Lori Anne Madison will be the youngest competitor everrrr at the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee.  She's totally awesome.  I just wanted to share a few of my favorite Lori Anne quotes with you guys:

 "It didn't make me nervous because ... I am accepted by any group. I have older and younger friends. My youngest friend is Reese; he's three years old. My oldest ones are Shelby and Walker, and they're eight." 

"I like astronomy and biology, so the perfect thing (career) for me would be astrobiology."

"I also am aiming to be in the swimming part of the Olympics."

"i'm really really hoping for a descent, nice, big-sized trophy."

Fantastic kid her parents are obviously doing something right, how refreshing that her achievements and dreams are not of the princess variety, so rare to find a young girl being celebrataed for anything other than her ability to wear a party dress, she will go far.
