Today marks two years since our schools said “extended spring break” and asked us all to social distance.
Cannon was 3, Emmy was 1 and our lives changed so much basically overnight. We were so so lucky that we had a lot of opportunities to still get outside with lots of room in our neighborhood for walks and a backyard to enjoy.
We were also lucky to live near family, even if we couldn’t be together we still got to see them.
Even if it was through the window it’s better than Zoom 😉
I wrote this in a blog from March 2020 about researching how long we might be “social distance” and I am somewhat glad I didn’t know what was coming.
I can’t believe how much they have changed. I try not to think too much about how more than half of Emerald’s life has been in a pandemic and what they have missed out on. Life has not been easy for anyone the past two years but we have also gained some things. We invested in a travel trailer and have seen so much more of Colorado and spent more time together as a family.
Two years in, we are still here, together.
