Preedy Kid Travels

In this first unit of Tapestry of Grace, one of the activities is to work on a map of the US.  They suggest marking stars on all the cities you've visited, and drawing the routes you've driven or flown for vacations.  Our travels are a bit more world-wide, so I decided to do this with the kids, incorporating our travels around the world.  It just seemed like the more logical thing to do for us.  I had no idea, however, just how ridiculous the map would turn out to be. I know we've been to all these places, but you just don't realize how crazy it is until you see it all drawn out on a map!  All this in the last five and a half years.  Wow!  I feel so blessed to have gotten to travel the world with my kids!  What a great gift for them!


Countries Visited:
USA
India
England
France
Ethiopia
United Arab Emirates
Nepal
Thailand
Singapore
Australia
(The dotted line to West Africa is a trip Paul and I took by ourselves while the two kids were in France with the grandmothers.  We visited Burkina Faso).

If we can just get to somewhere in South America, they'll have 6 of the 7 continents covered! : )
