What is the capital of Burkina Foso? Wagadoodoo. What is the capital of
Suriname? What is the capital of Tuvalu? FUNAFUTI! I know that one.
What is the flag for Ghana? What is the flag for Greece?
Which country’s capital is Lisbon? My head is swimming and
I am sweating more than usual. Lots of information to put
in my small head for the the Kickapoo Valley GEOGRAPHY BEE.
I hope when the competition is over I will have a chance to
breathe. Despite all this I love geography!
On Monday, I have gym class with Mr. Burkminor. Some kids in my class call the gym teacher, Mr. Burpminor. That is not appropriate, but it is funny.
Today our gym teacher took our class outside to the school’s prairie.
Mr. Burkminor taught us about cross-country running. After he talked to us he had us run through a course in the school’s prairie. He told us to run along the trails in the prairie that have green flags. “Only run on the trails that have flags. The trails without flags are flooded.” That’s what Mr. Burkmeyer told us. But did Kirby listen?
I think you know the answer.
Anyway, I don’t care about Kirby’s problems. What I wanted to tell is that when I was running I saw THREE, three birds I can add to my GREAT YEAR list. The THREE PERCHING birds are:
1) The American Goldfinch
2) The Tree Swallow
3) The Red-bellied Woodpecker
And Kirby’s total today 0.
