This was a really hard week to get used to the new curriculum, which really does ask them to take a lot more responsibility — and then to really look at the results of their progress. It’s always been a challenge that Thursdays are generally a “recovery” day for the kids, but with Béla’s birthday this week, they had to put in some evening hours (and will be on Saturday, too.)

There are upsides — it is clear what subjects are challenging for them and clear what they love — but boy, would their educational lives be different if they could be at their best five days a week rather than four (and with the occasional appointment, illness, errand)… well.

Perhaps it’s time for them to get some homework help from… Flula Borg!
