Our Unschooling adventures have brought us to one of my favorite places: horse country. I love Kentucky because of all the horse farms, rolling blue grass hills, and the wonderful hospitality. I miss the South, and as far as I am concerned Kentucky is part of the southern states because of the blue grass music, sweet tea, that wonderful southern twang, and, of course, being south of the Ohio River.
We started our adventure at the Visitor’s Center today (first amazing thing to do with kids in Georgetown, KY) to get an idea exactly what there was to do with kids in Georgetown, Kentucky. Mrs. Linda from the Visitor’s Center was extremely knowable and helpful with free and inexpensive options. I explained we were roadschooling (homeschooling while traveling) or Unschooling the girls. She got excited and filled our small bag up with brochures, maps, and pamphlets of places we could visit. The girls decided to only pick thirteen (because it’s a good number) and most of the places are free (my favorite price).
