day 17: not off to a great start

Béla did not feel well. No overlap symptoms of Covid-19 other than a headache, and holding a popsicle on his soft palate helped — sign of stress headache/migraine. He watched ASMR videos made by a man who draws freehand maps, and Claudia had her online Latin class. Not much else to say. Our friend Henrique…

mood: anthony hopkins listening to thrash metal (day 16)

I love the vocalizations you can hear him making. The greater part of the day… seemed, again, to happen in the evening, when Béla established his online chess account and was playing with our next-door neighbor (in our respective houses). Claudia is down to the wire with preparing for the Exploratory Latin Exam and she…

day 14: the whispering queen.

Maybe homeschoolers technically get a…

NOTHING TO SEE HERE: day 12

So maybe we are involved in a secret collaborative video project that got Béla and I out this morning, and we ran into our friend Brandi and all immediately backed away from each other. Keren also got the kids up and moving with a Skype game of “Two Truths and a Lie” (critical thinking!) The…

“crip camp” and christmas pudding: day eleven

Tucker has been really enjoying taking inventory of all the fresh, frozen and shelf-stable food in the house, as well as cleaning/sanitary products. But today, in an act of faith (and because it’s not too…
