chana asked today, didn't lot realize that avraham was a very good person and hashem wouldn't have killed him? (regarding the premise that the daughters thought they were the last people alive in the world).

we did revii in the car on the way to parkour. on the way home, we negotiated what chazara would be. chana felt she knows shlishi pretty well except for the last page. so i wanted her to do just the last page (she still cannot remember the word chessed!) and do 10 minutes of sheni. she wanted 6 minutes. i said 7. she said 6. i went back to 10. i didn't back down and she ended up doing 7. she got through most of avraham's questioning about sedom. as usual, she didn't remember a few things i wish she would, but overall she did well.

then when we got home i wanted to do the new pesukim. i figured she could easily do 3 new ones. she said 1 and wanted to compromise on 2. i remained inflexible, because i felt they'd be easy for her. they were. so easy, in fact, that she did one more pasuk because she wanted to know what happens next.

actually, i am kind of stumped on the pshat of that last pasuk. i'll have to look it up. but we still have rashi to do. there is a new rashi, too. chana asked why avraham moved, and rashi addresses that. but maybe the actual words are more complicated than is worth doing. chana will have a nice long break now, and hopefully we'll hit rashi tonight, review yesterday's rashis, and try out the new one. if it's too frustrating, we'll drop it. i already summarized it for her.
