Mammoth Cave

We took a little trip again this year before Thanksgiving.  This year, we hit up Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.  I was a little concerned about the weather since we were heading north, so we took the easy route and stayed in a hotel.  I’m glad we did because it was very cold that week!  We had a great time though, and I was glad to have some outdoor time.  If you ask the girls what the best part of the trip was, they will tell you that it was the hotel pool.  Oh well – you win some and you lose some.












We saw tons of wildlife during those few days.  It was quiet and peaceful since no one else was there.  The girls were a little nervous of the cave, and I was a little concerned that I was going to have to walk back up the 500+ stairs to get out, but no worries.  We all survived.  One more national park to check off my list!

Fall Ball started

We have 2 playing soccer this fall.  Ellie has been dying to play ever since Samantha started two years ago.  Mean ol mom wasn’t ready for it though.  They are both doing well so far.  Ellie took some adjustment to having a late night practice after a full day of school, but otherwise, she can run with the best of them.  Samantha and her teammates are finally using some basic skills that the coaches have been hammering in for years now.  She can dribble!
