We are still living on stay at home orders over here (day 45404?) + like most people, we are pretty much on a roller coaster of emotions. One minute I see all the silver linings and get a little sad thinking about when this is all over + we have to go back to normal life, and then the next I CANNOT WAIT TO GET OUT OF MY HOUSE and go back to normal life!!! Either way, it’s a moment in history and hopefully the first + last pandemic we will ever live through, so I thought I would document what our days are currently looking like over here, with three kids in quarantine.
All four of us girls are home, all of the time. I am teaching full-time online, Waverly is in between zoom calls + flip grids + learning plans, Avalon is doing sight words from a book I got her plus still checking in to see her preschool class once a week, and Remerie is a tiny wrecking ball living her very best life with all of us home. My husband is working twice a week and working from home all the other days, + we are trying to fit in all the house projects in between everything else. We have gone on more family bike + golf cart rides in the last couple of months than all the ones before it, such a blessing, and have also let the girls have more screen time more than ever before because, survival. Our big girls obviously have figured out that life is not business as usual right now — Avalon saw a woman litter the other day and said “she is definitely going to get the coronavirus”. 😉 They also desperately miss trips to Target and our weekly Mexican nights and most of all, being with our family + friends, but all in all I think that they appreciate this downtime with just the five of us as much as we do, which is truly the biggest positive of it all.
We are sending our love to those directly impacted by all of this + also wishing the happiest mother’s day to all the mamas this weekend! XO
