Mary-Kate is not the only scholar in the family. Matthew is also hard at work filling his mind with lots of useful and important information. Here he is learning English Grammar.
You can tell by the look of concentration on his face that it doesn't come easy to him. It is also not his favorite subject. He is eagerly waiting for Biology or Religion class to begin.
