We studied Mississippi in our state study this week. From our coloring page we learned that Mississippi's state bird is the Mockingbird and the state flower is the Magnolia.
We enjoy Magnolias all year around.
They have the most lovely thick green leaves. It is one of very few evergreens that have leaves and not needles.

We had a sandwich called Mississippi Sin, but we really didn't care for it much.
For dessert we had Mississippi Mud Pie.
And I can't leave a study of Mississippi without thinking of this song...
We have "visited" 44 states (88%) in our Postcard-Geography album.
We still need postcards for these states:
If you live in any of these states and would like to help us with this project, please leave a comment on how I can get in touch with you. Thank you!
