So here we are four weeks of quarantine so far. Life has definitely changed. Kids have been distance learning my sons school has kept him super busy with work everyday. My daughters school isn’t doing anything but she’s four and at least gets church videos once a week and her old teacher from last year is sending her videos each week reading her books Which is so sweet.
I’ve been working on her reading and learning each day and trying to make sure she still has plenty of fun. She definitely misses her friends and school. She’s been FaceTiming with friends and sending each other videos.
My son is keeping in touch with his friends and definitely misses them too. I’m bummed that the 8th graders did not get to put on the Passion Play they worked so hard on. I’m bummed they are missing out on all the fun graduation things last dance and Disneyland trip.
But I know it’s not as bad as my nephew and all other kids who are missing high school graduation and prom this year. They are all handling it so well though.
We are now wearing the face masks when we are outside in public which isn’t very often. I only do drive up for groceries when needed and we occasionally go through the Starbucks drive thru to get a treat and get out of house.
We’ve had a lot of rain this week. We had all the storms and earthquakes and it’s all been a lot. We’ve kept our spirits up and concentrated on the good what we are so grateful for. Today and this weekend being at home instead of at church and instead of family gatherings is so different. We actually were supposed to fly out this morning and take our kids on their first ever cruise a Disney cruise we were planning and excited for.
So we felt bummed today but we have each other and food and a roof over our head and our health so we are blessed. I will have the trip to look forward to when we get back to our new normal .
I hope that everyone is staying home and doing what they can to stay safe and comply and just find the joy during this time even when it’s hard. I am so grateful to all the essential workers out there.
Sorry I have not been on here in so long it’s just been an adjustment for me with all this and I wanted to be a good head space when I wrote. Hang in there and definitely keep thriving and growing and finding joy each day. Goodnight 😴🌙😘
