The whole wide world sits and watches this plague travel city by city waiting for it to pass over. For many, staying home isn’t a pastime. For many, the home isn’t a refuge, for some, home is bondage. My heart aches for those who feel like this. But for most, home is life! This is the case for us.
As homesteaders and homeschoolers, we find it quite normal to stay home and make the most of our time together. We completed the school year online through K12, my youngest did fundamental learning with me every day and we still have an entire flock of animals to take care of. The only thing my children miss most is their extracurricular activities. Zoom saved the day by allowing our children to continue to dance with their friends. It wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows. The interaction with peers made dancing fun. This experience makes you value friendship and social gatherings for sure.
