Getting together with many members of the Davis family over Zoom across 5 states on a Saturday morning.
We can't go OUT for a date? What do we do? PLAY BOARD GAMES! We have played 40 games in less than 70 days so far in this new very "home life" reality.
We own over 200 board games (including sequels and expansions). And we love them. We play something almost every other day.
The game pictured above is called "5 minute Marvel". We each play as Marvel Superheroes attempting to defeat a series of Super Villains. Each round only lasts 5 minutes and gets progressively harder. We beat the last villain with one second to spare.
A few places are beginning to open up around the state. 8 weeks since his last haircut, but the time has come.
Jeremy always gets his birthday gifts from me early (usually around my birthday) in an effort for him to give him a chance to fully enjoy them over the summer since his birthday is right after school starts bak in the fall. This year is the Oculus Quest. A fully contained virtual reality system. It is a great time to have a VR headset! A way to travel and workout without leaving home.
It's official! I'm forty! ...and in the middle of this pandemic and toilet paper shortage - my sister found it funny to send me a spare roll. Too funny!
*See more pics under "Our Pictures".
Masks have become a 'thing' in Texas. Some people are fighting the idea of being 'forced' to wear a mask to go into stores and posting really dumb stuff on social media about it, but I personally welcome this change to keep everyone safe.
My sister's daughter, Lily was CareFlighted off Kodiak Island to Anchorage, AK, where she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes like me. This is going to be a hard fight, but she is a strong girl!
*She was released on 4/24 and headed back to Kodiak.
One of our friends has decided to retire from teaching before next school year, so we have taken in her class pet, Myrtle the Turtle. She lives in apartment for now, but will move to Jeremy's classroom next school year.
It took a few weeks, but my "green screen studio" has arrived! Now we look like a professional operation making our teaching videos for our students each week. We move out the couch and record the following week's videos each Wednesday.
