Education and Food

You really have to have faith in our educational system…

Sitting with 3 girls, (10, 12 and 14 years old) and I decided to throw out some random fact questions…Here is how it went:

Me - What state is known for oranges?
Them – California, Georgia and… Mexico

Me - Grapes?
Them – Seattle, Florida and yummy!

Me - Beef?
Them – Farms, Australia and… Montana

Me - Blueberries?
Them – California, Indiana and I don’t know

Me - Lobster?
Them – Hawaii, Florida and California

Me - Cheese?
Them – England, Detroit and… finally, Wisconsin

Me - Corn?
Them – India, Arkansas and California

I think I might have to go have a talk with the schools about what the hell they are teaching our kids…or what they are NOT teaching.

I am surprised they didn't mention Chile ....

my 5 year old's class had a field trip to Whole Foods today. Good thing it was a field trip - I can't afford to shop there!

SG - What the heck kind of school field trip goes to an organic grocery store? Did Whole Foods sponsor it or something? I can't shop there either!!!

Awful and funny all at the same time.
I think some teachers just pass kids these days so they can be rid of them.
