|My Kindergarten son's first hand drawn map.|

In preparation of implementing the classical method into our homeschool next year. I am testing out several things this year. One area that is mentioned numerous times in the classical method is mapping skills. Mapping skills are developed when a student draws a map by hand. Drawing maps by hand helps students a variety of ways. They learn geography, art and can work on their penmanship.
Having just returned from our camping trip to Oklahoma I was looking for an extension of that activity. Mapping skills was the perfect choice. We learned about Caddo Indians that once lived in the area and we learned about the three rivers that border Texas. I have decided to join in on the fun and work on my mapping skills as well. What a great learning opportunity this is going to be for all of us.

Recently, I have fallen victim to blogger blues again. This site is seriously stressing me out. Perhaps my blog should be the least of my worries. But I am going to move it up the priority list at least until I figure out how to post a button and change a few things with the layout. It's really nothing major but the fact that this has been on mind several weeks and I have not been able to execute much is driving me crazy. So readers of Random Uttering expect a few new things around here, ugh hopefully. As I cross my fingers and get to work.

Today is my birthday. Happy Birthday to me. In the past birthdays would get me down and I would obsess about aging. Today though, I am cheerfully welcoming another year. God has provided all that I need, my cup runneth over. Truly I am blessed.
