Now, now, our daughter last year (or the year before, time really doesn't matter out here) memorized all the states and where they belong. She's a whiz at it, and by golly, I learned (again) where all the states are!!! I know where Delaware is!!! :wink: :wink: :wink: :D

Hanta,
Isn't that one of the great rewards of having children around- you get to relearn all the things you thought weren't important at the time you were supposed to learn them in school!
And with the grandkids, I even get a third chance :)

Thank you, Robert,
Your State game was fun. It would have been a lot easier if they'd begun with Texas though! I'll have to send that on to the grandkids.
