Corona Virus Quarantine Day #165: Long Days, Chickens and Copper Heads: September 1, 2020:
It’s been a weird day on many levels. The kids went to their first full day of school and the kids were tired! After my own practice I went to Ellen’s practice followed by Fiona’s practice. I coached a lot of tired small humans. Being back in school is amazing…but it’s also exhausting.
When I asked the kids about their day and being back in school this is what they said:
Finley: School is good mom, it just felt like a really long day. I liked recess and playing football. At recess we don’t have to wear our mask.
Cooper: I liked school it was fun. It was a really long day though. I liked social studies class. I’m excited for that. Do you think we will learn about Hamilton?
Ellen: I really like school mom, I’m glad I’m back. I like seeing my friends but It was such a long day.
Fiona: I love school mom. My teacher is really funny. I had to do division today, I’m not very good at that, I need to get better. Also, I felt like the day was very long too.
Fletcher: I like school. It was fun. Why can’t we just go half the day like yesterday. It took forever.
At practice I ran into Fletcher’s teacher who reiterated that point saying that all the kindergartners were done by 12.
Sounds like everyone has a lot of work to do to get used to being back in school full time. Friday night should be interesting.
On a side note 2020 keeps getting weirder, I actually saw a chicken cross the road tonight (cue the jokes). I had to slow down because it was just walking down the road…slowly. That was a first for me.
Then Bryan and I were walking our dog and I happened to look down and Bryan was inches away from a very large snake that was very interested in biting him. When I said “Bryan snake, I spooked him for sure.” Long story short, our neighbor had a shovel and he is a boss…so he killed it. Thank the LORD.
Did I mention it was a copper head? For sure gonna have a nightmare about that one tonight.
This is part of the snake…oh man. It’s head was up ready to strike. My neighbor is a total boss. I was terrified. Also, Gigi really wanted to eat it.
Yep. It was a weird day on many levels. I’m glad to say goodnight to it!
In other news I’m hoping tomorrow I will get word that our Million Mile page has over 1,000 members. That would be $10,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand! It’s Pediatric Cancer Awareness month and I’m excited to see the good we can do for these sweet kids.
Finally, I get to coach an actual game tomorrow. I almost can’t believe it. It’s very exciting and feels surreal.
Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
