Ida B on school:
"There was a rabbit cage in the room, but we couldn't pet it until it was time. There were books on the shelves, but we couldn't read them until it was time. There was a playground with slides and swings and balls, but we couldn't play on it till it was time. There were lots of kids, but we couldn't talk to them till you-know-when."
Ida B on homeschooling:
"And I got to stay right where I liked it best: hanging around with Mama and Daddy, Rufus and Lulu, the trees and the mountain and the snakes and the birds. All day, every day.
It seemed like the best plan in the world to me."
