Maddilynn Burke Topic 7 DQ 2 Hey Nathaniel – the stay at home order has definitely been tough and hard to manage. Being home with no social interaction is something we are not used to. Personally speaking, I have taken the time to relax and refresh. I found that my normal day to day was so full. I had 2 school drop-offs, an hour commute to work, a full workday, an hour and a half commute home, and then 2 pickups with after school sports, meal preps, etc. We have made more time for family dinners at the table, more time for the kids to help around the house, and more time to spend doing whatever we want like fort-building, bike rides.

I was also providing all meals and coming up with activities to avoid boredom. So while I was still busy in a sense, my life was full of things I enjoyed. I loved helping teach my son and being part of his kindergarten year. That was something that never would have happened with a traditional school year.
