Montana


Mon·tan·a (mŏn-tăn'ə) (Abbr. MT or Mont.)
Montana is a state of the northwest United States bordering on Canada. It was admitted as the 41st state in 1889. Most of the area passed to the United States through the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and was explored by Lewis and Clark in 1805 and 1806. Split for many years among other western territories, the region was organized as the Montana Territory in 1864. Helena is the capital and Billings the largest city.
Population: 945,000.

We are taking a family vacation to Montana. Ezra is excited to see the mountains. Asher is excited about his new brown shoes that look just like his old brown shoes but they are a size larger. Kirsten and I are excited about a family vacation in the mountains.

When I was younger I always remembered which state was Montana by picturing Joe Montana as the nose in the state. Does that help you?

I'm excited for all of you! Hope it's a great time. Please be watchful for bears and mountain lions. We'd like to see you all in one piece when we visit next month. Thanks for the Joe Montana tip...that is very helpful. You are such a bright black boy.
