Since school is out, we have snack time at 10 and 2.  I learned quickly if it were up to the brothers, snack time would be all day long.  They can scarf down a pint of berries under a minute or devour a Costco sized bag of pretzels.  This is a favorite time of the day...

I have a first grader.  Since March 13 when Ohio schools shuttered their doors, we have spent every waking moment together.  I am very thankful that we are healthy and we have the means to participate in the emergency need to school at home; however, do you ever think...

  • Gri...

Today was a good day.  My mom was able to come visit and join our quarantine!  The kids were super excited that Grammy was coming as we haven't seen her since Christmas.  

We followed our new morning "routine" and started off with weather journaling and r...

We made it!  Everyone still surviving? 

Day 2 didn’t go too badly here.  My daughter, Maddie got a little more sassy on Tuesday, but I can’t say I wasn’t anticipating that!
