Last summer, the girls could name all 50 states and their capitals.

Since they’ve been in school and concentrating on schoolwork, we noticed the recall of these facts were fading. We hung a big map and every night we take afew minutes to review, making a quiz show type game out of it.

“Wisconsin…..”

                    “MADISON!”

“California…..”

                    “SACREMENTO!”

And so on.

Last night at dinner, the girls started quizing each other; and were struggling with the answers so we began to “Help” by naming states and then trying to give a hint.

Clark tossed out “Ohio….  In 1492 Coooluuuumbussssss sailed…..”

                    “BLUE!”

Eh. Geography is over-rated.
