JIF Peanut Butter Tour

Jif Peanut Butter Tour Our homeschool group went on a wonderful field trip today to the JIF Peanut Butter Factory in Lexington, KY.  It’s a tough tour to book, so we were especially thankful to the entire staff for welcoming us with friendly faces, lots of information and some really cool things to see and…

Cumberland Falls

We took a mini-trip to Cumberland Falls in Southern KY not too long ago.  It was such a beautiful afternoon!  The waterfall is majestic, the rock samples are outstanding, the hikes are not too difficult, and the scenery is gorgeous! You’re able to walk right up to the water a short distance before the waterfall….

Frankfort Field Trips

In case you don’t know, Frankfort is the capital of Kentucky.  It’s also where I grew up and where my family still lives.  There is a wealth of field trip opportunity in Frankfort from government to history to museums and more.  We’ve been trying to make it a habit to go on a quick field…

A Tree House!

It’s been in the works for about 6 months (and actually still needs a roof), but the big kids officially have a tree house!!  It’s very rustic – which I love.  The kids are already planning to deck it out in Boxcar Children-style!  I’ll post indoor pictures when it’s complete. Have a very blessed Memorial…

Newport Aquarium

Did you know the Newport Aquarium offers two free children’s admissions per adult in January and February each year?  I didn’t until recently.  We’ve been wanting to go forever, but haven’t wanted to fork over the steep prices.   Our first trip today was made even sweeter with the $42.oo savings! The Aquarium sits right beside…

Equine Hospital Field Trip

We live in Central KY – what’s often called the “Horse Capital of the World”.  We’re surrounded by beautiful horse farms and have the priviledge of living near the Kentucky Horse Park.  With so much horse business going on in the area, there are two premier equine hospitals within easy driving distance.  Lucky for us, Rood and Riddle…

Field Trip Fun

For those of you who know Melissa from blogging, consider yourselves blessed.  But, if you’re lucky enough to know her in person, how much more blessed you are!  It was such a treat to spend time with her last week.  Not only that, she took on all three of my children while I spoke at the THINK meeting AND…

Shakertown

Have you ever visited Shakertown?  It’s such a lovely place to visit in Central KY.  This weekend, we were treated to our first ever overnight stay in one of the original village buildings!  My father-in-law took our family and the horses for two days of trail riding, hiking, touring and dining at the historic restaurant. …

Toyota Field Trip

There’s a Toyota Plant not too far from us.  For years I’ve been wanting to go on the free tour they offer,  but my children have always been too young.  Children have to be at least 1st grade with a parent chaperone for safety reasons.  Anyway, this year, we left baby toddler Eli with Grandma and…
