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......

Vacation week: Bele Chere Festival in Asheville

In random order, once again because otherwise I'll never get them posted. We spent the night with Alice in Asheville on Saturday night and hit all the Bele Chere craziness on Sunday. Alice had a terrific migraine unfortunately, and couldn't join us for the fun. Silas and Jake stayed at the house to video game while the rest of our motley crew headed into downtown to meet up with everyone.

Getting out of the heat for a rest at the Woolworth Walk.




Jana and her boys brought their sweet puppies with them...Jalen and Sierra fill up on puppy love.



This guy was shouting all sorts of lovely (NOT!) things at folks in Pritchard park. We couldn't resist becoming hecklers and sent George and Rachel in posing as a lesbian couple to debate with him. They were SO good at it too.;) It was highly entertaining because the guy was none too bright and George is well versed at debate. They even got other folks in on the action for a second. Yes, highly entertaining.



The local hookah shop. Btw, if you like flavored cigarettes of any kind (organic, natural, cloves etc...) they will be illegal shortly. Of course the big name cigarette manufacturers with all the nasty crap in their product can still sell menthols. Gross. Wonder who was behind that bit of unintelligent legislation? Grrrr......




Sierra's shoe-sharpie art.



Dancing in the streets....Trevor and George (aka; Moira) have set their wedding date for September 18th of 2010. Mark your calenders!!



Jana and her boys pose at the soda fountain in the Woolworths building. My camera wasn't cooperating and I caught them off-guard. Great place for a Cheerwine!



Empire tattoo rocks! Showing off some of their work I had done a couple years ago.




An impromptu pudding-eating contest. Mega-gross.



Jana posing with the controversial and well-known Mad Monk of Montford.




Free hugs campaign!! That's why you carry around that black shoe polish...right John? RIGHT??





Crazy, lovely, swirling day with lots of cool people. That's how Asheville days usually are.

Looks wonderful! Go George and Rachel! Abbi would have so loved to debate that man with them, oh, and of course Alec too!

i stumbled across your blog via the unschooling basics yahoo group and i just HAVE to say something about the guy you photographed who shouted at people on the street: i went to bowling green in ohio and that guy (i am pretty sure it's the same guy) came around finals time either annually or biannually (i can't recall) and said his crazy stuff and everyone yelled at him. my theory was that the bgsu hired him to help us blow off steam...i think you just blew the theory i had held for over 10 years...but totally worth it cuz now i can't stop laughing!!!
