“My kids went back to full time school in person… and they seem to be doing really well with it.”

This week, I’m starting to realize that fall is setting in and I’m trying – um my kids went back to full time school in person so managing that and remembering masks and they seem to be doing really well with it and seem to not even really notice. Especially the kindergartener who said to me as she was trying to manage her glasses fogging up with her mask. She said “Mom did you have trouble with your glasses and mask when you were a little kid too.” I thought that was so funny that she has totally adapted to this way of life it seems, and knows like just assumes this is how it always was, can’t really remember.

So with the weather changing it’s so beautiful here in Michigan and yet there’s kind of a feeling of dread because the thing that made this whole pandemic manageable seem to be, being able to be the outside and we have a little lake house we could go to and that was amazing, to have a place to escape to and get out of the house. And now a lot of questions come up with as it’s getting colder and we want to meet up with people for now we can maybe do some bonfires and meet outside and feel pretty safe, but winter’s coming, we have questions about do we have babysitters come? Like how does that work? And yeah, so these are things, so fall seems to have this sense of dread at least for me because of where we live and knowing how hard it will be to gather together or what will we do. Like, how are we gonna adapt or are we just gonna have people over and take our chances? I don’t know what we’re supposed to do.
