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......

Jared went to Girdwood Fair

So Jared and Kevin traipsed off to Girdwood Fair in the middle of the woods with a bunch of hippies and other friends for the weekend. When Heidi dropped them off they had no reservation for a campsite, but they had food and a tent and decided to wing it. As it turns out, having no plan and a spirit of adventure pays off lots of times.

They found a friend, whose Mum had a friend, who had a house adjacent to the festival grounds. They pitched their tent on his rooftop (how cool is that?) and had a real bathroom to use all weekend. Being willing to head into the unknown isn't something Jared would have embraced until recently. His cousins are cool guys though and it doesn't hurt to have weather you love.:)

Check out that view! I do miss Alaska this time of year...

Pitching their roof-top tents.

It looks like a very Alaskan style house. He was exhausted when I talked to him on the phone last night so it must have been a lot of fun.

Addendum: Heidi posted some cool pics of their weekend at her blog.

They were completely EXHAUSTED but they had a blast. Kev had to wake up early this morning for his Water Safety Instructor Course, which will give him a $1.00 raise. I have to do a quick errand and when I get back I will post the pics that I took.
