We spent a few days in KY visiting family.
This coal house is actually in WV, but it's close enough that you can probably see into KY standing there.
My sister-in-law has goats, which the kids love to see.
We also went to the Breaks Interstate Park on the KY/VA border.
They have displays about coal mining in the visitor's center. We had to discuss those and refresh our memories from studying coal mining when we did the book, The Rag Coat, earlier in the year.
While at the Breaks, we did some geocaching. It was our first time and the kids had a lot of fun hunting the treasure. Here is Molly finding the last one.
