Happy Halloween

 These days, we have been working really hard to try to make life as normal as possible. Twenty-twenty has really seemed like one big trick! Am I right? Halloween has always been a favorite holiday for us and even though the scariest ghoul around is COVID 19, we still were able to have some fun trick or treating. Stella dressed as her favorite Addams, Wednesday. We all wore masks, and ventured out into our tiny town for some treats. It was a good time!

Checking In

Hello, friends! How are you? We're doing okay here. Mike is still working everyday and my normal life as a stay at home mom is basically social distancing everyday. So, some things are still business as usual. Of course, I do miss regular trips to the store and going to church. On the other hand, the kids lives are anything but normal! They are out of school until, at least April 9. They are missing their friends, Mady is missing the field hockey season that she has been looking forward too so much, and Felicia will be celebrating her 16th birthday in quarantine without getting her learner's permit that she has been counting down the days for. It's a huge bummer!

As disappointing as all that is, I am trying really hard to focus on the positive. We are healthy, we are spending time together, and things WILL get back to normal! 

What are we doing to pass the time? The kids have had five days of  work from their school, today being the last day. What are the school's plan for future work, as of now we just don't know. We will wait patiently until we do know. I am not stressing out about it. As a family, we have been watching movies, playing cards, baking (and eating too many treats), taking walks, and just hanging out. Thankfully, the girls are able to Facetime friends so they are staying connected during this very strange time. 

I know that we all deal with stressful situations differently and it's okay to be scared. I am trying my best to not beat myself up if I let the kids have unlimited screen time or I don't follow a strict schedule for lessons. I really do believe that the more relaxed I am, the easier it will be for all of us to get through this. Kids are resilient, they will be fine.

We are all in this together. We will get through this! 
Stay well, stay safe, stay home.
