So, what do our young scholars do that evening?

If the story is to cover the school year, it has to skip large gaps of time.

But it struck me as a very unlikely that they would just go to bed after dinner, they hadn't much else to do, and so I am starting them on their next trip to the library, which will move the plot along.  So we are still on the same day on which a great many things have happened.

At least after this they will have some less plot-worthy stuff to occupy their hours.
