While I certainly feel like we’ve settled into a new “normal” now that we are 4 weeks into staying at home, the biggest daily challenge is the same that it was in the beginning: finding time to get everything done without childcare! Justin and I have been trading days with the kids, which is par for the course for us, but it still can feel a little disorganized and challenging at times.
I’m so thankful that my kids have been so calm and flexible during this season. David, my 6-year-old, will occasionally talk about what he is excited to tell his friends at school when he goes back, and I always just let him share that excitement with me and respond by telling him, “We aren’t totally sure when school is going to start up again because we want to make sure everyone is healthy”. In our area, there is the discussion of school starting up again mid-May but I’d be lying if I said I actually believed that would happen.
We got the boys some new “scooters” for riding outside since they love doing that so much. We chose YFliker (Luke, my 5-year-old is on an A1 and David is on an A3) and they have really enjoyed riding them!
This weekend is particularly important to me as it is Easter weekend. Easter Sunday represents a major part of Christianity and I’m sad to not be able to attend our church on this important day. The church building and people aside, I’m happy to be celebrating what this day means for us.
I hope you have a really nice weekend, are staying healthy and content at home if you are there, and if you are still heading into your workplace I hope you feel safe and important.
