Geography confusion

Our kids, since we’ve moved around and traveled so much, have always been fascinated by cities, states, counties, and countries.  They are constantly asking questions like, “Is Jeffersonville a city or a county?”  “Is Somerset a state or a country?”  “What is our country?”  “What county does Gertie live in?”  “What language do they speak in Illinois?”

We’ve said for months now that we can’t wait to get to geography in school to try and clear some of this up.  Well, the confusion seems to be growing.  Twice recently, in Paducah and in Evansville, as we were driving down the road, Catherine called up to the front seat and asked, “Hey, Mom!  Is Wal-Mart a city or a state?”
