It’s Saturday morning and we just finished our 2nd week of home school. We are still in our Pjs. The children are doing art and I’m catching up on the blog. I thought it would be fun to ask our children what they think of all of this. This is what they said:
Blake 8 says, “It is super crazy because I knew that I don’t know if you guys never heard of Donavan Mitchell or Rudy Gober had the Covid-19 but there was 3 people in Utah who had it and I knew only 2.
When I was little my mom told me she thought that she knew what it was: so someone killed an animal in China and the animal might have got sick and they killed it and ate it so that’s how the Covid-19 had started.
When I was 8, the school has closed from March 16 to May 1. I was really happy to stay home because I like staying home with my mom and dad. I miss school because my friends were there and I liked playing football.
I couldn’t go anywhere right now because it is scary because if someone is at a restaurant and you went to it and the person sat in front or behind you, they could touch me and I could have had the Covid-19. But I didn’t.
I was also scared because if one of my friends have it then I couldn’t play with them. Also, the Church was closed for 2 weeks. It was really crazy.
Evelyn 6 says, “well, I’m just still a little scared. It’s because I just don’t want to get it. It’s because I’m just afraid of getting it from other people. Yes, I miss school. I really want to go to school. I can’t play with my friends because of Covid-19. I’m kind of sad about the coronavirus because I never played with Sloane in a while.
Oliver says, “When I go to the beach I’m scared of a tiger shark eating me. ” I then asked him if he knew what Covid-19 is and he said, “no.” I don’t think he’s realizing what’s going on.
A few new updates:
- Most missionaries have returned to their home countries
- Utah has issued a “Stay at Home” warning. We aren’t supposed to leave our house unless we shopping for essentials.
- Schools have been closed until May 1 now.
- No social gatherings are allowed.
Our new day-to-day looks like:
- Eating breakfast
- Doing schoolwork
- Outside time (no friends, usually in our back yard)
- Nap time/tv time
- Dinner time
- Family time
I haven’t shopped or really been anywhere in the last few weeks. This week I got more used to doing home school and keeping up on other things.
