Hello from inside my house! Can you believe we're still all doing this? Crazy times. Phil and I made a Quarantine Bucket List of (mostly fun family) activities we wanted to accomplish before we went back to work/school. Then on Tuesday, the governor of Massachusetts closed school for the rest of the year. Oy vey. So now the kids are staring down 2 more months of home learning, and we are not feeling rushed to check items off the list super fast, so here are the seven things we did this past week while on April break...
This one has been on my todo list for a looooong time. We had an unorganized filing box of all our important paperwork that I wanted to sort into binders with sheet protectors. On a rainy afternoon, I sat on my bed, watched some brainless tv, and got it done. Isn't it funny the amount of time we take to put something off vs. the amount of time it takes to get it done and feel awesome? Why do I ever procrastinate?
We keep looking for family activities we can do together (or at least the kids can do together) because we want them to have shared experiences and memories instead of each playing/watching individual screens. Learn to Draw videos have been amazing! They really get into it, and they are all so much better artists than Phil or me.
