1st week of Homeschooling, done

Today Hawaii celebrates Statehood day and there is no school. This means we all survived the first week of homeschooling. The Clever app that the kids are using is getting easier to understand. The boys all love their teachers and really are enjoying the activities. I think they think it’s a giant game and they are also learning as we go. This is the first year I’ve allowed them near an Ipad or Laptop. I’m not one of those parents. My kids do not even know how to work a cellphone. Allowing them to push the numbers with their finger on the Ipad is blowing their minds. They want to do more of it and I’m happy to see them excited about schoolwork. Our classroom had 2 critiques and Sarah was not happy with either one. That made my day Lol I told her she loaded up the former bedroom with too much stuff. She thinks we will utilize all of it, we will see.

I am missing Denver more and more. I love being here but I want to be in my house. Everyone congregates to the main house and I never get a break. I take walks in the afternoon while Kate and I talk on the phone. That helps us both get outside and enjoy each other’s company a little. I’m finally feeling well enough to start lifting weights again and getting some cardio in 4 times a week. The swimming has helped my back and foot a lot. I haven’t been surfing at all lately because I don’t want to wear myself out and miss my walk/talk time.

Hawaii really is a paradise. I wish we could go out and explore a lot more than we have. The Governor has put us back on lockdown again. That is limiting the places we can go. Life is quiet and boring, I love it. I really did pick the perfect place to ride out a pandemic. My family is happy here. We have stopped arguing and bickering about petty things. We are happy.

Hope you guys are doing well. I watched some of the Democratic Convention this week. It’s cemented more and more why I will be voting for Joe Biden. I hope some of my readers will vote for him too. It’s so important to get Trump out of the White House. I will be watching the Republican Convention to see what information they put out. It may not be as exciting but I’m sure it will be interesting.

Have a great weekend everyone! Love you all!
