The other day the "big kids" (as the little kids call them) decided to make maps.
Corynn, true to her nature, made a map of a make-believe place and imagined a story to go with it.
Andrew, true to his nature, made a very practical, very realistic map of a very tangible place. Hopestead.
He said "Hey Mama! Look at this map I made of our house."
I said "Oh, that's nice." with a quick glance.
And then I looked, and looked, and I realized everything was in its' proper place and practically even proportionate! He even included the chicken that was, at the time, running loose- having escaped her cage. It is that little scribble by the clothesline.
The cow and pony are further on down the field, so they couldn't be pictured. (I know this because he apologized for it. ha!)
So here it is- Hopestead.
