I'm so unbelievably proud of Baxter today!
A couple days ago he came home with the news he won 2nd place at the preliminary Geography Bee. (That's right, I said GEOGRAPHY!) They took 3 4th graders, 3 5th graders, and 4 6th graders (due to a tie--2 for 1st and 2 for second) for a school final Geography Bee that took place today after school.
To my amazement, Baxter won FIRST PLACE!! (I'm amazed because I've never been good at geography.) He won a metal and a new Atlas--which he's been looking at all afternoon. On Tuesday he'll take a 70 question test with an hour time-limit to see if he gets to represent Foxboro Elementary in the State Geography Bee.
Good Luck, Baxter. Remember I love you!!
2nd place, 3rd place, and 1st place winners!
