We still haven’t quite figured out a routine for our new normal yet. It’s been harder than I thought, but overall we’re all still fine. Making it work!
Virtual school continues to be a challenge for everyone. Damien has issues with starting for the day or whenever there’s a break and he also is very emotional when it’s time to learn something new. Or really anything he doesn’t want to do or anything that he feels is taking too long. However, Damien is enjoying the daily “Mystery State” assignment where it gives you a few facts about a state and you have to figure out which state it is. He’s currently working on long division and just finished his Book Club book. When he actually tries and focuses he’s very capable. Scott and I are taking turns sitting with Damien during his schoolwork, working around our own work schedules. Just five more weeks of school left–woot! I’m also happy to report that the public schools are going to be reducing the amount of school work for the remaining weeks in addition to having a very limited amount to do on Fridays. For context, we spend 3-5 hours a day, Mon-Fri, on schoolwork.
We didn’t do very much for Easter this year. Well, not that we typically do very much…
We’ve been trying to help keep Damien entertained since he’s been spending weeks on end in the house. Oh, and he also lost another tooth AND he has another one loose since my last post!
Lastly, Scott and I celebrated our 15-year anniversary this month! SOOOO crazy! Since we couldn’t do much, we got take-out from Texas Roadhouse, yum! We were planning to go to Las Vegas this summer, but that’s no longer an option. Some day!
