We have felt so fortunate during this pandemic that our lives haven't really changed too much. We are thankful that Corey's company has been deemed an essential business, so he has been able to keep his job and work from home. It's been great having him here all day, but it's sometimes a challenge to keep Jake out of his hair (he loves Daddy's computer keyboard). Since Jake and I don't get to go on our normal outings to the library or to swim lessons or weekly Bible class, when the weather is nice, we spend a lot of time outside picking dandelions, playing with roly-polys, and swimming in Jake's inflatable pool.
Easter has been a little different this year. We usually head to Central Texas for a big family reunion at a cousin's ranch, but we have spent this Easter weekend at home playing, cooking, and working in the yard. Jake woke up this morning to an Easter basket filled with some of his favorite things: a banana, fruit snacks, books, and colors. (The Easter bunny also included some Skittles and Reese's Pieces, but Corey and I are pretty sure those are for us.) I made pancakes and bacon for breakfast, and we hunted Easter eggs in the front yard. Since we couldn't go to church, we watched our church's live stream on TV. I also made a big Easter feast for lunch, so I think I've met my cooking quota for the week. ;) We're missing being with extended family this weekend, but it's also kind of nice to just relax and do our own thing.
If you are reading this, we pray God's blessings over you during this trying time, and we pray that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during this pandemic.
