4 state capitals begin with the letter H: Harrisburg, PA, Hartford, CT, Helena, MT and of course Honolulu, HI. I chose Honolulu not because it’s the only state of the 4 I haven’t been to but because of its role as a mnemonic device.
As part of teaching our home schooled children the state capitals we have often made up and employed mnemonic devices. We ask questions like Whats the capital of Alaska (You know … Juneau) or Who’s the Boss of Massachusetts ? (Boston). Our youngest daughter is name Lucy and we used to call her LuLu. So that’s how we remember Hawaii’s capital by emphasizing the lulu in Honolulu.
I want to take this time to remind the readers that the purpose of my theme is not to give you many or any great insights on the capitals but to randomly riff on the capitals and in so tell you more about me and my family than stuff you can already find on Wikipedia.
