50 States: The Letter C

California: This is another state that had many books written about it. I really liked Our California, Pop's Bridge, Oranges on Golden Mountain, and Harvesting Hope. We also read a few books about the history of the state and colored the flag. I had a hard time deciding what to cook for dinner, and this ended up being the week that everyone got sick with a stomach virus so our dinner plans got all jumbled up. I finally ended up making a pasta dish that had asparagus and artichoke hearts in it, a big green salad with avocado and other veggies, and some oranges.

Colorado: We read C is for Centennial (I wish the library had more in this series) and a book called Dreamplace about Mesa Verde. We also read a bit more about the Anasazi and other cliff dwellers (S-Boogie thought they were really cool) and a book about Rocky Mountain National Park. After coloring the flag we had some yummy beef and pinto bean chili for dinner with warm corn tortillas.

Connecticut: This is another state that was hard to find books for. The only picture book I could come up with was The Taxing Case of the Cows. We also colored the flag and ate pot roast for dinner with custard for dessert.
