Shelter in Place Day 2
We are wrapping up Day 2 of Shelter in Place. We took a few essential trips outside. John headed to our local Trader Joe's and took a picture of the signs. We took a family bike ride around the neighborhood. We walked to our favorite take-out place for dinner to support a local business. And of course, there is time in our backyard. Sidewalk chalk, balance biking, and skateboarding are all nice breaks. (The picture is from yesterday, but there was more skateboard practice today.) We are renting the most comfortable house of our time in California, and I am so grateful for the space right now.
My emotional moments come when I read about the idea of California schools not reopening this school year. My online teaching will ramp up soon, but it won't be the same. This would be emotional for me at anytime teaching, but it stings as a first year teacher. This was supposed to be 180 days with my first class.
