The school week ends with an Estonian lesson for both Ingrid and Adrian. (It’s just them and one more kid, so it’s almost like a private lesson.) They sometimes grumble about having to do it, but I keep insisting. Currently they don’t seem to mind it too much. Still, they’re happy when the lesson ends, and the school day and school week with it, and they can go home and look forward to movie night.

Usually they walk home together after the lesson, because it’s the one day when they both finish at the same time. The lesson ends at four, which is late enough so there is no point in going to after school care (for Adrian) or The Club (for Ingrid) but nevertheless so early that I usually cannot be there in time to pick them up. Today was an exception since I was working from home.
