I think my next few weekend recaps are all going to sound the same. And honestly, I can't really differentiate between the weekends and weekdays. I know I work during the week, but I forget what activities we do when.
I do know that we've been going on walks every day. I like the fresh air and exercise and it's nice to see so many neighbors out walking (though we keep our distance). Many people in our neighborhood have written chalk messages on driveways and sidewalks. We did the same. The messages are so uplifting and give me hope.
On Saturday, the boys and I wrote down clues and then we all piled in the car for a scavenger hunt. A had to locate the destination according to our hints. It was nice to get out of the house and we had fun coming up with clues. I think we'll do the same this weekend, only A will come up with the clues and we'll have to figure out the destination and direct him.
We've actually done really well with meal planning. We're limiting our grocery shopping to once per week and dare I say I'm actually enjoying coming up with a plan for dinners in advance. It takes the last minute guesswork out of dinner preparation and with no commute, we have plenty of time to make dinner.
This week has started off much more challenging than the last. It's officially our spring break so W doesn't have daily assignments. I think the novelty of all of us at home all the time has worn off. The lack of routine is also resulting in some restlessness for the boys. We're getting them outside when we can and just trying our best to keep life as normal as possible.
