"On my arrival at Ambleside I was interviewed by Miss Mason who asked me for what purpose I had come.
My first encounter with a homeschooling family was at the induction ceremony of my soon-to-be husband’s first job after college. The children of this family seemed to be such well-rounded kids: each were able to converse with adults and other kids well, and to sit quietly and respectfully during the ceremony. I could tell they had a great relationship with each other and with their parents, and there was such a striking joy about them. Something about the family was so captivating. Upon learning that they homeschooled, it was sealed into my heart.
