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......

Surprise visit

Last week, we got a phone call from some of our good friends we knew in Pensacola...they were just West of Knoxville and wondering if they could stop by to visit. DUH! :) The Johnsons came on over and spent the night, then we took them around some of our stomping grounds...

with a short hike at Buffalo Mountain,

A visit to downtown Jonesborough,

where wise old walking sticks seemed to stare at us,

and the kids hiked around the park at the Storytelling center.

We had some playtime at Willow Springs Park too.
It was really great to connect with some old friends (some of the first homeschoolers we met after moving to P'cola in '98) and catch up on life.
Sierra and Wesley were very close friends as toddlers. I once did a painting of them at the beach, which became the "metamorphis" painting later. They look like they could be related to this day. I'd love to post a "then" and "now" pic of those two.

Becky and I are opposites in many ways, beyond the obvious size difference.:) But she's still one of my favorite people to hang out with!

Actually, they go up to Virginia every summer where Chuck works for the same company he's with in P'cola, but it's more laid back and they all get a vacation really.

Her sister is up there too. They had taken a different route in order to see Chuck's grown son Trevor, and realized they were just down the road from us and had time to stop.

They loved it so much they're going to make us a permanent pit stop on their way up every summer.:)
It's nice to be a good pit stop for friends.

Greeting from Virginia Beach!
Thanks so much for letting us crash on you for the night. It was so good to see you all again! The pics look great and we had so much fun. Heidi's right, that hair looks great on you. You look like a stinkin' model in that picture!

Love to all!
