If your area is anything like mine, we are in the final stages of setting up for virtual school… In our house, we had to create a specific area for school work, I didn’t want them working in their bedrooms. We had to have a place for school work to “live” so it didn’t end up all over the house. Finally, we had to get “fun” seating choices, thank you neighborhood for a yoga ball chair- who knew?! I have 7th and 5th grade boys, and to say I am nervous, concerned, or terrified, is an understatement. 1st Details are NOT my thing, 2nd teaching children… not my thing either. and 3rd, loosely strung together schedule with everyone home?!? you guessed it, not my thing either. SO MANY pieces to this next chapter that has no track record or expectations…. I’m TRYING to find the silver lining.
As with everything COVID-19 related, I really work hard at trying to find that silver lining, this said lining may just be one centimeter long, but man, I try to find it! In this case, I don’t have to get the kids up early- commuting time is down to 0. I don’t have to make breakfast before they start class, they can eat and work at the same time! And, shoot, we only need to be dressed from the waist up! Anything more than that is beyond me right now. I’m going into this virtual school storm with my umbrella hoping it will keep me dry. Thank goodness everyone else in the country is going through a similar experience. God Speed.
