It’s been difficult to have the kids at home with me everyday, but I find a way to make home school work for all of us.
It’s important to my husband and I that the kids are safe in school.
That means we don’t want them to be surrounded by people that aren’t vaccinated and aren’t wearing masks or other protective equipment. We’ve been homeschooling since the beginning of the pandemic. The kids really miss their friends, but my husband and I do our best to take the kids outside of the house for fun activities when the weekend is here. Last Saturday we went to the zoo. The zoo is definitely one of the places that the kids prefer to go. We bought season passes a couple of years ago and we renew them every December. Since the kids love the animals and the exhibits, it seemed perfect to get season passes. My husband and I were supposed to take the kids to the zoo last weekend, but I had to stay home. All of the vents for the heating and air conditioning system needed to be cleaned. Since we were having some problems with the indoor climate control, I thought it was a good idea to clean the vents. My husband offered to stay home and handle the chore, but he worked all week and I thought it was important for him to spend time with the kids on his day off. I didn’t mind staying at home when the air vents. After all, I had a very quiet and relaxing day all by myself.
