So Proud!

     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!!

 Baxter's Championship question--the answer was Egypt, which happens to be the country he's doing a report on this year!
           Baxter and the principal.

                    2nd place, 3rd place, and 1st place winners!
