Her life's work at this point in life is primarily learning. Her work doesn't stop just because it's not included in some arbitrary outside schedule imposed by the school district and/or mom. She has oodles of free time, so it's not as though we are imposing onerous burdens on her by asking her to learn a little more right before dinner. What is really ironic is that she reads science books to herself all the time without realizing that I enter it as "school time" for homeschooling records.

Somehow dd6 has already decided that when "schoolwork" is over (according to her own reckoning), it is horribly unfair to expect her to do a German worksheet with her dad when he gets home from work. She's the one who didn't want to do German Saturday School this year. She needs formal instruction in reading and writing German from someone, and Vati is the most qualified for the job. Here's hoping she acted so resentful today because it was the first day and that she quickly gets used to the "extra" learning time.
