I was putting up my map and I couldn't figure it out. I mean if I can't put up a map of the US how can I possibly teach my kids anything. Well it turns out my state I had in my hand would not fit anywhere and then it hit me. I accidently cut out two copies. My state was already where it was supposed to be. It took me 3 long hours to put the map together. I had to take it down multiple times. First, Florida was to far over so Maine didn't make it on the wall then I had a hard time getting angle just right so all the states would fit together. As you can see thee was a huge earthquake between two states. I had to redo the entire east coast to fix the huge crack. I also found out I am missing 5 states so the fun continues. I am so happy I finally got it up on my wall though. I think I will keep it up for a very long time. I have feeling labeling it is going to take a very long time.
I just wanted to share. Have you ever had a project take a lot longer than you thought it would? Do you have any favorites that stick out? I love seeing what others come up with. I have seen so many great project ideas.
