Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

A Creative Way To Memorize States and Capitals

I decided to take the map down and let the girls play with it.  I asked them, "Do you want to take a road trip?"   I got interesting looks.
"Divide up your cars. The first person who places all their cars on the map wins!"

So I called out the capitals and they had to drive their cars to the destination.  If they got their first, they could leave their car on that state. 

They had a blast!  And it was much funner than just rote memorizing. :)

I remember memorizing states and capitals about a year ago. I remember all the states names but remember only half or a little more of the capitals
