Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

Typical day....

I'm sitting here exhausted, not sure why I can't seem to just lay down and SLEEP. But sleep won't come if there's something rattling around in my brain that wants to be written down, so here I am.
Spent today at the museum again, this time Jared joined in the fun too. Ate lunch at Barbaritos after, where Jalen was much too loud (as usual) and inquisitive (as usual) while moving constantly (as usual).
They spent most of their time at the museum in the art studio, where we met an unusually free spirited young person in charge of the studio. She read us a lovely quote about people freely expressing themselves in a unique way and the importance of that. I ended up giving her our family's website and telling her about unschooling. Not something I tell the average person...some people just have that special sparkle in the eye and attitude though.:)

We came home with an odd menagerie of popsicle stick puppets, who had interesting conversations tonight. Baked some cinnamon chip cookies at Jared's request and played an interesting game of shoot-the-rubber-bands-at-the-target-on-the-wall. Interesting, because Sierra was full of ideas for rules and points, but on the edge of meltdowns every time we didn't do it the way she wanted.
After a few quiet talks and some frustration, we leveled out enough to play a round before reading some stories and calling it a day. The targets hang on the wall, waiting for tomorrows shots.
