Last time we visited my parents, my mom gave Thor a list of states so he could look for license plates on our drive home.  Since then, his interest in geography, maps, and flags has continued to grow.  Yesterday when he complained of being bored, I remembered an idea I saw on this great site.  He pretty much spent the rest of the day drawing flags from a book he happened to have from the library, The Kingfisher Student Atlas of North America.  (He threw the French flag in the mix just for Mama.)  He learned about new places and made some pretty cool art for his room.  In all, he made 21.  He was so excited and proud every time he finished another one, and Mama likes to see that in her boy.  This was a great project!
