Penelope bumbles the bee

Penelope dropped her backpack by the kitchen table and plopped down in a chair. She put her head in her hands and sighed.

Her mom was at the stove, stirring a pot of soup for dinner. She turned around when she heard Penelope come in. “What’s wrong?” she asked.

“It’s the school spelling bee,” Penelope said, raising her head. “I got chosen to be in it.”
