Our fanatical viewing of "The Amazing Race" paid off
I have exactly one thing to blog about tonight: my son won his school's contest for the National Geographic Bee. The winning geography question came down to what civilization was based at Tenochtitlan, on the site of modern-day Mexico City. My son wrote "Aztec" while his competitor guessed "Mayan."
He received a $25 check and a nice little medal from National Geographic. As the winner for our town, he now takes a written test that is sent to Washington for grading and the top 100 scores in Massachusetts go on to the state final. Then it's on to Washington and the finals, hosted by Alex Trebek. Hooray!
