Corona Virus Quarantine Day #63: Quarantine Questionnaire: May 21, 2020

Corona Day Virus Quarantine: Day #63: Quarantine Questionnaire: May 21, 2020

Today we had our final school drive by.  The kids got to see their teachers and I’m 100% positive that Fletcher was the most excited.  They put in a new play set and he talked about how he was going to play on it all the time.  He then saw his potential kindergarten teachers and got pretty excited.

The kids liked seeing all their teachers and having their final goodbye.  I finished school today too.  Giving a final via a laptop was a bit weird but I’m happy to say virtual school is over.  I can’t say I was a fan of it.  I missed seeing my kids each day in a normal setting.  I missed the way my classroom smelled (like Mr. Wuebker’s coffee), I’m sad boys volleyball got cancelled and I liked seeing and hugging some familiar faces each time I entered and left that building.  It was a weird way to end the school year and I’m sad that I cannot say goodbye to them in my normal way…with a letter and my lessons to live by.  They will be mailed instead.  Again, not the same.

So in honor of the end of the this bizarre on line school situation that we were all thrust into…we did a quarantine questionnaire.  I want to remember these things about these sweet people in my house and even about myself.
