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......

That's for Lake Eden Arts Festival, held at Black Mountain every spring and fall. We came home with this handwoven Mayan hammock swing, which has been utilized almost constantly all week. We're loving it and plan to buy a couple more for bedrooms. The company operates at festivals and such, so very low overhead. If you're looking for a hammock or hammock swing, definitely contact them! This one cost us $50 and their prices range from $30-$60...a bargain for sure. They have no website, but you can talk to them at (304)536-2959 and they'll be happy to mail your products. Sweet Springs Hammocks is the name.

Other fun things at LEAF? Why a didgeridoo toning circle, under a tree next to the lake,

A ten foot tall Blue Fairy granting your wishes,

an entire creek full of Obos (see my Tea With Ren blog for further description) which children and adults sculpted and moved all weekend. It was awesome.

LEAF for a day was really fun...but next time we're joining Trevor for the entire weekend. There was so much we didn't have time to try out, like the zipline into the lake. It's a big, happy, hippy/kid/music/food/obos/art fest. Sounds like something unschoolers might like.:)
