Dispatches from the Distancing – Day 56 AND Saturday Snapshot

When days are the least bit out of the ordinary these days it seems like a momentous thing.  This afternoon, we went to Chris’s school for a reverse parade for the kids to see their teachers and to pick up their personal belongings.  It was nice and…weird.  I think it would have been less weird if Chris weren’t going to a different school next year, but there you go.  Lillie opted to go with us, which surprised me because she hasn’t had much interest in visiting her old school since transferring last year.

But, anyway, our daily schedule was all out of whack.  It was fine–I trimmed down his to-do list so it should have been easily manageable.  But then our internet went out.  What are you going to do?  He got through all his teacher-assigned work but I didn’t have him do much more than that.  Sometimes you just have to do what you can do!

The weather here was gorgeous and we grilled steaks for dinner.  We thought about eating outside, but the wind was kicking up so we decided against it.  Pat is now watching Catching Fire with the kids–Lillie read that book in less than 24 hours and will start Mockingjay tonight.  Has anyone read the prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes?  Is it worth it?

Again, no pictures of today and I’m changing things up a bit for Saturday Snapshot.  I looked back from pictures taken this day in the past.  While I have a lot of pictures, most of them are Girl Scout related and I don’t feel comfortable sharing pictures of other people’s kids (unless they expressly tell me it is okay).  However, 10 years ago, Pat and I took toddler Lillie to the beach.  If I remember correctly, we were there for Mother’s Day weekend–a weekend out while we only had to deal with one child (I was pregnant with Chris).   So I thought I would share a few pictures from 10 years ago.
