Back in 2008, I set out for a seven hour drive with my firstborn who was then nine years old. We were heading to our first Living Education Retreat, and I wanted to enjoy time with my son on the way. It was the first time I ever spoke to an audience about Charlotte Mason.

Now sixteen years later we are back. It’s my son’s second Living Education Retreat, and this time he’s joined by his sister and his new brother-in-law. So much has happened in the intervening years, but I am just as excited as ever to be talking about Charlotte Mason.

One of the most rewarding outcomes of implementing Charlotte Mason’s ideas in my homeschool is finding my adult children wanting to learn more about these ideas themselves. It gives me hope that ideas born in Ambleside and replanted in America will grow and expand for generations to come.
