Fifty Nifty United States

This is painted on the black top at Megan's school.

Every morning after we walk Megan to class, Molly and Wyatt run back to this spot and hopscotch around the country hollering "What's this one Momma? And this one? What's this one?" It's a great geography review for me. (I think I answer their ques 99% of the time!) 

Since we are on "countdown" til Molly's birthday celebration with Aunt Kate & Uncle Paul in the windy city (9 days til takeoff) her favorite state to find, and stand, is Illinois.Wyatt then runs over to "We Live" (otherwise known as Southern California) and they holler back and forth "Hi Kate! Hi Paul! Hi Chicago!"

It's great fun, and a daily reminder just how far in life and near in heart a place can be at the same time.
