It got to the point where we did not go out of the house for days. We went down the road to the 24 hours store for essentials and...the kids went to school on their own and they would bring some milk on their way back. I bought a digital copy of the Encyclopedia Britannica and I started reading that and when the kids got home, I had lots of stories to tell them and in a way that sort of made up for all the things they did not learn in class. We talked a lot about the persecution of the Jews and infinite sequences in mathematics and abstract impressionism; about industrialization as well. That really fascinated them. Sometime, Gilles did an entire track in one day and we danced to it in the evening. There just was no going back.
