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......

Summertime fun

The bad news? Trevor moving out.
The good news? Trevor moving out.

It's good for him, because it's what he wants. It's good for us because we suddenly have more space.:) As much as we miss him, Sierra is thrilled to have her own room now.

It was musical rooms here again. Jared moved into Trevor's old room and Sierra took over Jared's. We painted it to her taste....

Jalen even popped in to help for about, oh, say five minutes before he said "I'm done with THIS" in a disgusted voice. It's only fun until your arm starts hurting.

Here she is in her new space. Aaaaahhhhhh...

We found out that there is now a Farmer's Market in downtown Jonesborough, which is very exciting! Sierra made a new friend on our first foray a couple Saturdays ago.

Here's a list of what will be there this week:

At the Jonesborough Farmers' market this Saturday 6/14:

  • Early season produce (lettuce, salad mix, radishes, herbs)
  • Herb and perennial plants
  • Country Sausage
  • Honey
  • Strawberries (after 9am for freshness)
  • Homemade breads and cinnamon rolls
  • Scratch Brick Oven breads, sandwiches, danishes, pizzas
  • Earth and Sky Confections
  • Blue Ridge Chocolates
  • Herbed Goat Cheeses (after 9am)
  • Jams, Jellies, canned goods
  • Fair trade Coffee & Scones from the Cranberry Thistle
  • Live music (after 8:30)

Last week we met up with La's crew at Winged Deer park for a free movie night. It seemed like a really cool idea (the movie part that is, meeting up with them is always cool) until the movie started and we couldn't hear a thing from our playground-way-in-the-back positioning. Oh, and then looking at the sea of vehicles (did EVERYONE in the Tri-cities decide this was a good idea?) and wondering how many hours it would take to get out of there afterwards, made us think it might be good to leave half way through.

THAT was a good idea for sure!:)

We had fun hanging out and chatting, playing in the water and being outside though. Met a new friend too.

This was probably their favorite part.

We left happy, laughing and a bit damp (mainly from the unusually high humidity). I think we'll go back when there is no inflatable movie screen drawing thousands of people into the park. Next time I want to hang out with cool people and watch a movie, I think we'll have them over here with some wine and pay the $4 for a rental. Yeah, that sounds good.

I didn't paint the end table! Actually, our very kind neighbors were re-decorating and gave us several items that we used in her new room. Even better than the thrift store.:)
