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......

Another Jalen convo

Jalen was just asking me about why we moved from Florida and how much we made on our house and so on....we chatted about hurricanes and mountains and the reasons we wanted to live here instead of at the beach.
"Why do they call it TennesSEE though? There's no seas around here." says the boy.

Very cute indeed. :) Did you look it up? I just checked Wikipedia and it says:

The earliest variant of the name that became Tennessee was recorded by Captain Juan Pardo, the Spanish explorer, when he and his men passed through a Native American village named "Tanasqui" in 1567 while traveling inland from South Carolina. In the early 1700s, British traders encountered a Cherokee town named Tanasi (or "Tanase") in present-day Monroe County, Tennessee.

It goes on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee#Name_origin
