Helping Flora with learning to ride a bike
Jonathan hilft Fora beim Fahrradfahrenlernen.
These have been the busiest first two weeks of a semester ever. I know now that I do not like Chromebook! I think pretty soon I will be an expert for installing software. My best advice: Don't go to college with Chromebook! It will not get you anywhere. And don't think you can get by by just using your phone. You do need a computer! Today, for the first time, I thought I was actually teaching German and not giving advice on computer related matters. I think we have also straightened out almost all my students' schedules. In case the computer idea does not work out, maybe admissions will hire me to give advice on how to add or drop a course :).
Jonathan has been doing quite well with his chemistry class so far. Today was his first real lab day. They measured the density of iron for almost three hours! He is not allowed to wear contact lenses during the labs. He needs glasses and safety glasses (and my laptop!). He talked in French (!) to our retired French professor today about his experiences in this chemistry class. The professor was very impressed that he was taking this class because it has the reputation of being a hard class. Charlotte is enjoying her music course although the professor kind of shortens his teaching time. Today was also the first day of flute for her. She has a new teacher because her old teacher graduated. I think she is doing well with the new teacher. We have not started any other homeschooling. It is simply way too hot! We will start on Monday, though. I am working on our family schedule. That is a rather difficult task because of the fact that we will have to drive to ballet now. Our ballet teacher moved to a different village. Only Flora will still take classes here because her teacher is teaching at our old studio. But Flora will also audition for the Nutcracker and that is with the other teacher farther away. Jonathan has been practicing his night driving to get the hours he needs to take his driving test. He is also practicing parallel parking.

I will upload the Draken pictures tomorrow or on Sunday. Today I want to finish our schedule.
Ich lade die Fotos des Wikingerschiffes Draken morgen oder Sonntag hoch. Heute will ich den Familienstundenplan fertig bekommen.
