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.

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