Snuggling along with Geography

The other day, Matt got home from work and couldn't find us anywhere. All the lights were off in the main part of the house, but the car was in the driveway, but it was raining outside and so it was unlikely that we were at the park. At 6:05 pm I received his telephone call saying, "Where are you?"

"We're back in the bedroom watching a documentary, silly!"

Doesn't everyone watch How the States Got Their Shapes all piled together in one chair?

It's certainly a good way to homeschool!

We LOVE How the States Got Their Shapes, by the way. On a six-hour car trip yesterday, we were playing a game at memorizing all the states' nicknames; Willow was taking a turn quizzing me, and I got stuck on West Virginia.

"Momma," she said. "Here's a hint. Remember what they said about West Virginia on How the States Got Their Shapes?"

On How the States Got Their Shapes, they said that West Virginia is mountainous, explaining its nickname: The Mountain State. Willow quite loves a world in which logical deductions prevail and things make sense.
