Since their arrival, they been participating in various Scripps Spelling Bee events, which included a barbecue at the Washington Nationals baseball stadium.
The two longest words hailed from West Virginia and CT (way harder to spell than Wisconsin) and were the same: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins. Merriam Webster defines the word as "capable of being perceived, especially by the senses".

Usually, she won, Edith said.
ESPN3 also will broadcast the third round from 1:15 to 6 p.m. "So I just couldn't be more pleased with her".
