Jackson loves maps. He also knows where to go. He did not get that from me. (Remember the time I tried to drive from Connecticut to Saratoga Springs and ended up in Vermont? Or the time I drove from Saratoga Springs home to Connecticut via NEW YORK CITY? There was also the time I tried to take the bus from San Francisco to the airport and instead took a leisurely ride to San Jose? When I asked the bus driver for help, he turned around and announced to the whole bus, "This girl's trying to go to the airport!!!" Everyone had a good laugh. It was awesome.

This website turns maps into watercolors.  I thought it would be neat to print some out and hang them in his room.

Thanks, Aunt Jane, for the pinterest link!

That is so interesting on two levels. Your experience in getting lost mirror my two famous 'getting lost' times. One was when we moved to newton . I was 15 and had to take the 'T'' from Boston to Boston college in newton. . I ended up in Watertown . Help. But my very favorite was during my flying lessons, I had done my solo flight at Hanscom airport and just about to land when I was directed to not land but to fly out 5 miles as an air force plane needed an emergency landing. Yikes, no flight maps , no sense of direction , I really can't believe how I got back. Needless to say that was the end of my pilots career.
