I have wanted to visit Tennessee for a while. I love country music, so I wanted to make sure to visit Nashville and take in a show at the Grand Ole Opry. This summer I finally decided to make it happen and I planned a trip to Nashville with kids. While the drive wasn’t short, it wasn’t horrible.

The kids slept for about 5.5 hours and...Read More

This past weekend I went to the Barberville Pioneer Settlement with my daughter. If you haven’t heard of it before, neither had I until I saw it listed as a Girl Scouts event. Barberville is an outdoor museum with buildings from Barberville in the late 1800s/early 1900s. There are original buildings on the property as well as replicas. We visited an old schoolhouse, where my 8-year old educated me as to why there were different size desks. If you are unaware, as I was, it is because they had kids of different ages in one room so they needed desks...Read More
