So April was…a month. It feels very strange to look back over an entire month full of things I didn’t do. We didn’t swim at the pool. We didn’t get new books from the library. We didn’t have friends over or go to anybody’s home. We didn’t play at the park. I didn’t set foot in a grocery store (Peter is our designated family shopper.)
So what did we do?
We rode bikes. We drew with chalk on our friends’ driveways. We coloured, we painted, we we built train tracks and block towers.
Rose has recently become obsessed with princesses (let’s be honest, we’re getting our money’s worth from our Disney+ subscription) and Pearl started making her paper princesses:
We walked to the beach and ran races in the vacant lot at the end of the street and played hide-and-seek in the forest.
We took selfies and practiced our fierce faces.
We are literally climbing the walls.
Like a lot of other people, we have planted a garden (my first vegetable garden!). Peter and I have competing sourdough starters (mine is winning) and it’s been surprisingly satisfying to watch it grow and make bread from it. I found myself reading more again but staying up too late. Peter and I watched all of The Mandalorian, all of Kim’s Convenience and are catching up on the latest season of Brooklyn 99.
What are you watching? Reading? Eating? Doing?
