Week 4 of Staying at Home
ONE whole month of Quarantining, staying at home, trying to do our part
in flattening the curve and praying that things get better sooner rather than later.
The week before Easter is usually a bit hectic with school finishing before Spring Break
and getting ready to color eggs with family and have our Easter celebrations.
Well it was much less busy this year and we certainly missed our families so, so much!
It was nice to hang out and take the day slow but it didn't really feel like Easter.
It felt like a nice Sunday in April but somehow for me at least, like every other holiday in our family involves just that family...loudness, kids screaming and laughing, burning the crescent rolls because we are too busy talking.
We were able to do a little zoom meeting with some friends and some family over the week and that was
definitely a nice distraction from what has become our new normal.
I am so very thankful for this time spent with my little family
but I sure do miss my sisters and brothers (in laws included),
my nieces and nephews, my mom and dad in law, all of our friends and my father.
(And it goes without saying, Target, lol)
I definitely will not take those get togethers for granted because now
I know what its like when you want to see everyone and you can't...
Ready for a nice big get together when this is all over and all is clear!!
Any way here was our fun from Week #4 :)
