School's Open

Today is our official opening day of The Allen School. (Wonder if we'll spark a new educational model?)

Of course you can argue that some of the more important aspects of learning was already taking place - big ones being confidence, leadership, and caring for the Earth.

But today began the more conventional of our unconventional school of learning. Here's our schedule - I'll keep you posted on if it actually works. We are also open to slight tweaks as new possibilities and mini-adventures pop up! And there is the possibility that Courtney and I have over-booked things (we never do that!).
