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......

They're here!

We were expecting the Snavleys on Wednesday night, but arriving home from work on Monday, I saw a humongous RV in the driveway and let out a loud yelp! They were here early and the kids were beside themselves.
It's been loud and chaotic and fun the last few days. Our weather isn't helping me with my plan in convincing them to move here....rain and cold have been the norm this week.
Jalen has been corn dog rich though, after an insane two-cart-load-with-Heidi-and-Markus-fighting-over-who-will-pay run to the grocery store! I thought they were going to break the damn credit card machine. Not sure if Ingles will ever let us back in the store.:)

Mary stopped by last night to bring the pics of our building project last week. Jalen took a look at Sierra using the compound mitre saw and said "That thing is dangerous Sierra, you can't use it!!"
She thought that was pretty funny, since she made several cuts with it while he was right there. Apparently smashing ice was keeping him heavily distracted. She told Calista, "that saw can cut your hand off!" She's very proud to be a "builder" that uses power tools. "they make you feel so powerful" she tells me. Yep, yep, yep! Gotta love them tools.

Markus is out showing houses to a client today. He's finally BEING a realtor. It took long enough to jump through all the hoops, I bet it feels good to actually show houses finally.

Ben and Kelly will arrive next weekend, we'll have quite a mob of radical unschoolers to hang out with! Hopefully the chaos doesn't drive Markus over the edge.:) We need a neat freak to help keep the house from complete bedlam.

Glad to hear the Free Birds made it safely!

We know how it is with a chaotic house full of family. We're doing the same thing. Enjoy!

Ohhhhh, I want a compound mitre saw!! We don't have room for one right now, but it's on my wish list for when we have more space ;-)

Please tell Heidi that Glenda in west Texas said "hi." I emailed with her several times about pros and cons of living in the Hill Country =)
