Today I am missing my Aunt Janne she passed away and is always in my heart. Today is her Birthday so I am still wishing her a happy Birthday in Heaven. She had so much life in her she was fun and feisty and had a great since of adventure and strength. She shares her Birthday with my cousin who I hope is having a fantastic day today! I am lucky that at least when we lost her you were still able to get together and celebrate your loved ones life. I know many people have been unable to do that since COVID-19. Hope everyone has a great day! Remember to hug the ones you love a little tighter and know you never know how soon you may lose them.

This week my son started high school via distance learning. Which is such shame but it went pretty well. My daughter doesn’t start her distance learning until next week nutty way to start kindergarten. Hoping that the kids get to have on campus learning in the near future. Been a hectic few weeks lots going on waiting for things to get back to normal. I don’t think it’s been good for kids to be stuck at home and not have social interaction. They are both great kids but they miss sports and school in person and friends and going to movies and restaurants and to do fun outings. I pray each night and day that things get better soon so everyone can have the freedom to enjoy those things once again. It’s also hard when families don’t get any time to just be on their own or with their pals. I hope everyone is doing well and hanging in there. I am really starting to struggle with making sure my family is happy. My kids and I all want to have our normal outings and social time. I do know when we get to have those simple things that we’ve lost last 6 months we will appreciate them more than we ever have.

We have had a decent month Savannah enjoyed going to camp each week she had her last day of camp today. We had hoped she would be going to school that was the plan even as of a week ago. But now we found out the Kindergarten and pre school will be doing distance learning as well. I don’t know how this is going to work for these very young children. I’m praying the kids get back to regular school very soon. We have enjoyed time in our pool and Brandon enjoyed almost two weeks in Coronado with his buddies family. I was so happy he got a break from the heat and had some time with his friend. Unfortunately it looks as if now that both kids will be doing distance learning for start of school year which is such a bummer especially since such big transition years Brandon is starting high school and Savannah is starting kinder. This is going to be hard to figure out my schedule as well since I am supposed to be online with my daughter whole time they have her doing distance learning. On the brighter side we have all been keeping busy and enjoying as much time together as we can. Seeing so many places shutdown and closed is not a good feeling. I want to see things open back up and our children have a real in person education again. I want all my friends who own businesses to be able to work again and not have their businesses shut down creating such hardships for them and all their employees. I am definitely meditating more doing my best to stay active and get my workouts in. I am doing my best to keep the faith have faith in God that things will be better soon🙏 I am finding that looking for things to be grateful for each morning and night give me peace. I have always been a positive person but I definitely work harder these days and make sure I find the joy in each day no matter the uncertainty. I have been reading a lot as well 📚. We miss my hubby and will definitely have to spend some time in June Lake soon so we can all be together. I hope that all of you have been able to find the joy and have some peace. 🙏😊😘🤗
