you can look at the dates and figure it out yourself if you want. we did half of revi'i on shabbos. well, it was actually less than half but i told chana that whatever she doesn't do, she was finishing up the aliyah next time. she agreed and finished it today. today is presidents' day and i thought, wouldn't it be great if we finish the whole parsha today and then we can start the next parsha tomorrow? chana did not seem enamored of this idea. i said we'll take a lot of breaks. she said my idea of a break is 5 minutes. i said, ok, an hour. she finished up revi'i just now. there were quite a few words she didn't know. i wasn't sitting next to her. what i have been doing until now is not telling her the word, but telling her to continue translating and see if she remembers the word from context. because it's 4:30pm and i've been trying to do chumash for hours with her and everyone is awake and needing me, i was not at my attentive best. so i just told her the words. i'll try to stay more on top of that for the rest of chazara.
i don't know if we'll get to the whole parsha today. chamishi is short but shishi is a doozy. i also want to do math and reading and writing... we shall see. maybe since today is a "day off" in the school system, i should focus just on chumash.
chana's computer is really going slowly and having trouble and she's doing 5+ hrs a day on movie making and i'd really like her to get a new one already.
oh, and while we were reviewing the pasuk of "and he didn't yasaf to know her anymore" she forgot what that meant. and i said either it meant yehuda didn't stop knowing tamar or he didn't know her anymore after that. ari was leaving the house and she called, "daddy!" but he left. and i asked her what she wanted. she said she wanted to ask him if he knew what it meant. i said, what do you mean, i just told you what it means. she said she wanted to ask him if he knew which one it was: did yehuda stop or did he stay with her?
so i said, quoting a rashi we've been doing, "chad amar v'chad amar!"
and she knew what i meant :-)
(it's the rashi that yosef went to do his work. rav and shmuel. chad amar his actual work, and chad amar to do his needs with potiphar's wife).
