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!
