It's Wednesday time again. I'm going to make this "Fun with Maps". I am a Map person. I like to look at Maps to get my bearings. My AAA membership is offset by how often I go in form Maps. Since I work in a different city than where I live, and it's been a while since I spent considerable time in the work city, I took a city Map and posted it on the wall of my office. I can look at it to find a new path home if the Interstate is all goobered up. I can see where I went when I ventured a new way. It's also been quite a converstation piece.
My Sons see me look at maps and decided they wanted one too. When my oldest was about 5 or and we were making trips to Chicago and others to Charlotte NC on a regualr basis to see Gransparents, he wanted to know where we were ont he map, but the maps were too big and cumbersome for him. I got a new Map of the SouthEastern US from AAA and took my old one and cut out a rectangle that went as far north as Chicago and as far south as the NC-SC border and then I covered it with 2 pieces of clear contact paper. This was his map. As he learned to read, that map was still there. He would ask where we were and how much further and I could point it out on his map. We had to retire it a few years ago. I ought to make another for the 6 yo.
Maps, They work for me.
