Dispatches from the Distancing – Day 77 and Saturday Snapshot

We’ve been doing this for 11 weeks now and we are on the precipice of it all changing. As I wrote yesterday, our county will be opening into Phase 1 on Monday. If all goes well, we should move into Phase 2 in about 3-4 weeks. However, I don’t think that will make a big difference to our lives.

What sill make a difference is that we are moving from the school year to summer. As much as Chris doesn’t want it, some studying will continue because the kids are not going to be playing video games all summer. Actually, I only worry about that with Chris. With Lillie, I can see her leaving the house first thing in the morning to play in the neighborhood and not coming back until dinner time. That is, of course, perfectly fine but I think a little something to prevent the summer slide is not a bad idea.

The past few days have been very warm here. However, because it is May and this is how life goes, it will be cold and rainy this weekend. Then it will warm up this week and then rain again next weekend. I’ve lived in Oregon to know that this is God’s way of messing with us, but it is still annoying. On the other hand, it’s not like we were going to go anywhere, so….

Anyway, I can’t say there was much to talk about today although it was Chris’s last day of teacher-assigned school work. But, as I promised yesterday, I’m sharing some pictures of the nature walk we took at Jackson Bottom Wetlands. Enjoy!
