We are halfway through day 3. It was a lot different than day 2. I got a notification on Facebook last night from my friend KareyB that she was going live in one of the prayer groups I’m in with other Scentsy Sisters. I watched and felt prompted to pick up my gratitude/prayer journal (I had skipped 2 weeks unintentionally but still going strong from January!), as well as a book I purchased during our Women’s Conference at church – Beholding and Becoming. I then had something pop in my brain (hello Holy Spirit) and wrote this after the realization:
So this morning, at 8:30 I loaded up RightNow Media and we watched the cartoon discussing the story of Queen Esther. And then we talked about it shortly and it was so nice to have that launch our day.
Another different part of our day was a FaceTime call with Sabrina. I met her mom (and dad) on the Mediterranean Cruise I earned for Jon and I in 2018. Sabrina is 6 1/2 and lives in Florida. So her mom and I coordinated a fun way to interact. Aubrey and Luke learned about some things with California and Sabrina worked on facts for Florida. Then they each shared a few things on a FaceTime chat. We learned that jellyfish can sometimes eat other jellyfish! That’s crazy!!
And another new development from the night before – several of our friends from church have birthdays this weekend and all their parties have been cancelled due to the quarantine. So I had suggested to one mom that she should give her address to friends to write & send cards. And another friend loved the idea and shared it. So today we took our creative art time and they each drew and colored things for our friends and we will be mailing them out.
Again we were using Art for Kids Hub. Yay!
The biggest struggle (not in a bad way or good way but just a way) is Ryan’s Behavioral Therapy. He’s been receiving 15 hours per week since September. When the school closed, we paused it. But if this continues on, I’m not sure what to do. I don’t want to stress or worry but my mom is in the high risk group and I really want to limit who comes in. So for now, we just wait. It kills my nerves but honestly – what else do we do? The one awesome thing is that we’re literally not alone in this circumstance. We are all together. <3
And today we had a day of no rain so the kids did their reading outside. For the past 10 days, It’s been raining about 8 of them. That is so not normal for us! With everything going on, it just is icing on the not-fun cake :/
Day 3 down. And at least 27 more till they go back to school. Hopefully.
