How Do You Spell S-W-E-E-T-N-E-S-S? Military Dad Surprises Daughter at Spelling Bee [VIDEO]

Spelling bee reunion
Reunited, and it feels so good

There are no words. Except for one: s-e-r-g-e-a-n-t.

That’s the word that Skylar Johnson, 9, spelled in the Boca Raton Elementary School’s spelling bee to win the ultimate prize — a reunion with her dad, who had been serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq. Skylar hadn’t seen him since last Christmas and her dad worked with her school to plan the surprise, according to ABC News.

Break out the Kleenex and watch the video of their on-stage reunion (after the jump):
