I know its been abut a month since my last post and I have been changing up the website just a bit but I wanted to touch base on what's going on and give you all a little update on our little family.
So to start since the last post we have decided we are going to send our children back to school this year and for us this means the kids are going back in a week and a half from now. Our children are excited to have some form of "back to normal" as they can go back on the school bus and at least see their friends. I know that they may have some hard days where they have to get used to not touching and sharing things but at least they get to see people and places with their own eyes and not over a screen! So we have come to this agreement on one condition.... testing the waters!
As things are changing and here in Nova Scotia our cases of covid are in the single digits and our children understand that they need masks and to distance themselves from others in case someone has it and does not know. They understand that this is a BAD version of the flu and it will be around most likely for the rest of our lives but we have talked to them about how it will eventually be just like pneumonia and will have a medication for it but for now it is pretty new. They understand that what was once normal is now going to be a little bit different. so we are going to try out sending them back to school.
As I watch updates from teachers knowing they are just as afraid of going back as I am sending my children that they will take the necessary steps to ensure my children's safety is what's most important and we will work hand in hand. If however the cases start to rise we will be pulling our children out and will start homeschooling in which we are ready for both.
So with that being said I have done a back to school haul for the children and I have also done a back to school haul " nurses edition " so be sure to watch for those on my YouTube channel.
So how do you feel about sending your child or children back? are you doing homeschool or are you giving the "new norm" a chance?
