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......

Thank you for being a friend.....

I probably should have made this into a cool slide show like La would have....but I didn't.
If you want the best effect, scroll to the bottom and start the video and then look at the photos while listening to the song.:) Then just pretend it's a cool slide show thingy like La would have made.

Thank you to every person that is in these photos and many who are not, for being there during the good times and the not-so-good time, for loving me even when I'm not acting very loveable, for seeing through me and into me, for backing me up and helping me back down. You all mean the world to me....


When I die, let them judge me by my company of friends
Let them know me as the footprints that I left upon the sand
Let them laugh for all the laughter
Let them cry for laughter’s end
But when I die, let them judge me by my company of friends

When I die, let them toast to all the things that I believe
Let them raise a glass to consciousness
And not spill a drop for grief
Let the bubbles rise at midnight
Let their tongues get light as thieves
And when I die, let them toast to all the things that I believe

I believe in restless hunger
I believe in red balloons
I believe in private thunder
In the end I do believe

I believe in inspiration
I believe in lightning bugs
I believe in slow creation
In the end I do believe

I believe in ink on paper
I believe in lips on ears
I believe what's shared is savored
In the end I do believe

I believe in work on Sundays
I believe in raising barns
I believe in wasting Mondays
In the end I do believe

I believe in intuition
I believe in being wrong
I believe in contradiction
In the end I do believe

I believe in living smitten
I believe all hearts will mend
I believe our book is written
By our company of friends

You are always lovable, even when (especially when?) you're being my evil twin.

i also meant to tell you that the reason i do the slideshows is not because they are so super cool or anything (i actually prefer the still pix) but because it is easier than putting individual pix into the post (and i'm a little lazy when i have tons of pix i want to share)...i mean really does anyone ever talk about what a pain it is to put pix on blogger??!!
