Learning and Vacation

Autumn Hues Along Cumberland River below FallsThis week was amazing!  We took a much anticipated fall break.

We stepped away from our workbooks but not from learning.   The week was full of learning about new and interesting things.

Mammoth Cave 2We learned more about geology and cave systems by visiting Mammoth Cave National Park.

Blue CorvetteThe boys particularly enjoyed a visit to the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, KY to see sports cars being assembled and tested.  We also made a subsequent visit to the Corvette Museum.

We learned a bit about the distilling process by visiting Makers Mark Bourbon Distillery.

Cumberland Falls with RainbowThe week was also full of hiking and relaxing in Cumberland Falls, KY.

This week was part of our larger goal this year – “spend more time relaxing.”  The implementation included a goal to go camping each month during warm weather.  I’ll be sharing more about this goal in a separate post on intentional leisure.

For the moment I’m feeling quite accomplished that our bags are unpacked, laundry is almost done and there are meals available for tomorrow.  Hopefully soon I can work in a little more time to spend online.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  1. Lovely pictures! We’ve gone to the caverns – when our oldest kids were young. Now it’s time to do a redo for you younger set. I’m vising from Weekly Wrapup!

  2. I have wanted to visit Mammoth Caves since I was a kids. One of the early video games was apparently inspired by them. Don’t know if that is true but it got me interested in the caves.

    • I think it might be closing again while they are repairing the sinkhole. I think we were there to see the sinkhole as much as the corvettes.
