When the estranged grandfather dies, he leaves an endowment: pay for his butler, and the purple Bentley, to go to the daughter-in-law and four remaining children, while she is short-handed due to her husband's deployment. Significant family trauma, but the butler says the right things. There is also the wildly improbable aspect of cricket (the game) taking over at the middle school. Charming.

The decision to homeschool our daughter, Alexa, was an easy one. Choosing a curriculum that worked well with her goals and schedule was a little more difficult.
