 After almost losing Josh in 2012, I feel that situation has greatly affected our views on covid. This has turned into such an individual situation.  There are no right or wrong answers in how we proceed this year. For my family, the risks are too great and we have chosen to wear masks, stay home often, and dive headfirst into home school.  We have friends and loved ones who have gotten sick and it's not pretty.  Who knows?  We really may have had this in late February right before things shut down (having Josh as an asymptomatic carrier---which would be awesome!)  I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring,  but this is working for us for now.  We definitely are living in the moment and are blessed to be able to have made these choices. We want things to go back to normal so bad.  While that doesn't seem to be in the cards for us here in the near future, we are doing things here at the house to help bring joy and motivation for the next season (Guys! We made it to September!) 

Days Gone By

 I started blogging in early 2000 (yea like the year 2000!)  Blogging is how I met my husband of now 15 years.  2020 has been a year.  Social media lately has been, well,  interesting, so I've decided to get back here for direction.  We decided to homeschool our 9 year old for this school year to keep both Josh and her grandparents safe.  That in itself has been the most interesting adventure.  I will try to share with you a bit here over the next few weeks.  I think what makes it extra interesting is that it is not my passion and was never something I wanted to do.  Since this year has been just one big adjustment, I really have neglected my photography.  So here's to creative future days with energy directed to inspire! Thanks for following. Our first Science unit has been about our solar system.  I love to set up photos that look like imaginary planets or elements from our solar system.
