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......

My Photo
Name:
Location: Jonesborough, Tennessee, United States

I was born and raised in the far north of Fairbanks Alaska where the moose trample your garden, northern lights dance and darkness rules the winter. I adore raspberries, tea, body painting, lazy nights watching movies and drinking wine, hiking, gardening, beekeeping, writing, creating art and traveling. I live with my husband Keith (the brilliant human behind Keith Dixon Studios) and the five children we brought into our relationship. My current career is in makeup artistry/body painting where I get to meet interesting people and paint diverse faces and bodies.

Hannah's quilt

The quilt originally intended to comfort Hannah as she fought cancer, will be given to her mother this week, along with this note:

"Diana and Hayden,
In Honor of Hannah's life;
To Comfort her loved ones;
To Surround you in the warmth of affection and community;
To Celebrate life.
From many loving hearts and hands.

Love,
Your unschooling family"


The quilt was assembled by Jill Parmer, who also crafted the lovely note and took this photo. I'm so grateful for the generosity and love that has poured out of this far-flung community we share.
The red hand-print in the lower left corner is Jalen's (two rows up, two squares in). Directly above his, is one of Sierra's. Going to the right, skip one square and the next is mine and to the right again is another of Sierra's. Her pictures don't show up in the photo, but she drew a garden on one and a butterfly/dragonfly/fairy drawing on the other. It was really great to be part of this project. I can't wait to hear what Diana thinks of it...

Our square is the top right pink and purple one. I am glad we were part of it. Angela Woerner

It's a beautiful quilt. I love polar bears and am especially drawn to those squares.

(By the way, I found your blog by way of the Shine list and the unschooling dot info boards.)

Mine is the peace symbol to the right of Jalen's handprint! And to the right of that is Cameron Lovejoy's "hug."
