Geo Bee...

Later today Miss Madline will be participating in a Geoography Bee at her school.  Five students from each Fifth Grade class will participate in a bee focusing on, well, geography.  The winner heads to the district then regional then state then nationwide bee.  She's a nervous little girl today.  Flash cards and atlases scattered amongst her breakfast on the kitchen table.

I'm happy to be the recipient of massive amounts of geography information as a result of the studying she's been doing.  Capital of Indonesia?  Jakarta.  What is Zaire now called?  Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Duh.  Greater land mass - Alaska or Texas.  Come on...Alaska!

I can't wait to see her at school today, be sure to wish her luck!
