Here we are four weeks into the coronavirus pandemic with the kids home from school, parents working from home or still going to work every day as essential employees. And waiting for news on how, if or when the kids will return to school?

Homeschooling is not something I thought I would ever be doing with my kids. It's not that I wouldn't homeschool if I needed to, but wow, it's certainly a lot of work. I am happy to report that after a few weeks of waiting, my kids are getting assignments from most of their classes from middle and high school.

So here we are, social distancing and homeschooling all at the same time. I love scrolling through my social media feeds to see what other friends and family members are up to while at home with the kids.

Depending on how old the children are, even just helping to remind them of their creativity is important. I feel like we can get so caught up with the main subjects of English, math, science and history that we tend to forget, what about keeping the kiddos' creative juices flowing? Maybe for one day, ditch the math lesson and give your kids some plain paper, crayons, markers, some glue and glitter and let them have at it.
