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......

Great feet!

I've had a lot of fun over at Flickr sharing pics with some of my groups. This was for the "foot task" at the "What's in a picture? Document this" group. We already posted several foot pics, but couldn't resist taking a few more tonight.

Sierra has the photo bug in a BIG way! She needs her own camera because she's down asking Markus for his every hour or so. Sometimes we ask her what she's going to shoot and she shrugs because she doesn't know....she just goes looking for inspiration and finds it somehow.:)

I've baked a pumpkin pie and mashed the potatoes. We're having chicken breasts (the meat eaters) rather than a turkey because I didn't want to face the grocery store crowds. Waited too long and decided we have plenty for a feast, anything is better than the anxiety of facing a huge crowd and long lines.

While I was cooking tonight, we pulled out a bunch of art supplies and the kids made some turkey decorations for tomorrow. Our turkeys have colorful, pastel feathers of course. Hey, that's what I had in the art room people! It's surprising they don't have glitter too.

Jalen has had a few really GREAT days this week. Still high energy, still intense, but without all the angry melt-downs. I may have to re-think food issues because we've been eating nothing but homemade, healthy meals lately and it seems to be affecting him for the better. The boys pointed out our huge screaming melt-down in the van after dropping John off, but that was the only one in three days and it lasted all of 10 minutes. A record in many ways.:)

So after weeks of having a really rough time, he's being extra-happy and extremely reasonable. Either we hit a huge development spurt or we rid ourselves of the foods that bother him (or a bit of both probably). Something to watch anyway.

Our house is warm and smells all pumpkin-spice-bread-kinda-yummy. Our handmade decorations are placed and everyone is starting to get tired. Happy Thanksgiving everyone......life is good.
