I don’t even know what to say about this crazy time we are going through right now. I’m so grateful to have my family under our roof right now and trying my best to keep our germs at bay! If you want to know more about keeping germs at bay read this post. As crazy as it might seem to abruptly have school called off for the next couple weeks it is for the best of everyone! We need this time to simmer down, be grateful for our loved ones, and make the most out of this time.
I has many of you ask for ideas of things to do with the kids and things at home. Right now we are going to start a little “homeschool” nothing super formal but a decent schedule and playtime. I’m listing a bunch of ideas below for things to do with our sweet little ones. Remember this time is a gift. Our kids will remember this in history – it’s up to us to keep it bright + light!
