Quarantine Day 5….

***I am starting a daily journal entry while I am stuck in my house for the Coronavirus threat. I may add new genealogy findings to the mix if I find anything.***

It has been a weird week for our family due to Coronavirus. Everything is cancelled or postponed. Spring festivals have been cancelled or postponed. Amelia’s lacrosse season is postponed. Amelia’s school trip to DC is cancelled. School has been cancelled for 2 weeks and elearning at home has taken it’s place. Luckily, Dennis still has a job to go to.

Elearning for both Amelia and Wiley started Wednesday and it is going well. Amelia gets started on her work around 6 am and finishes before lunch. She takes several breaks in between schoolwork. Wiley starts his work in the morning and finishes before lunch. Amelia and Wiley go outside and play lacrosse for PE.

We have been taking walks as a family twice a day to get exercise. We also walk our dog Ladybug on our walks. It is nice to get outside with the beautiful spring weather. I am also seeing an uptick in neighbors walking around the neighborhood as well.

Today we had a tree guy come and cut down a dead tree in our backyard. This will allow for more sunlight in our backyard which is always a good thing. He messed up our flowers by accident so he going to plant some more for us.

I am not minding the whole “staying in my house” thing yet. I like being at home more especially as I get older.I have a lot of books to read and genealogy work to do. I am not one for shopping or going to entertainment type things. I do miss going to the park or historical places. I like being outside. I hope our family beach trip in June doesn’t get cancelled because I love the beach. The beach is my happy place!

This ends my first journal entry while stuck at home during Coronavirus. Be sure to breathe, practice safe social distancing and wash your hands. We will survive this and come out stronger because of it. Namaste!
