All my children home and enjoying time together (and sometimes not so much). I’m loving all of the art work the kids have been working on. I’m enjoying The Presence of God, a book I’ve read several times before and feel like right now is a good time to read it again. I’m loving not having to be at the bus stop with Isabel at 6:40 am. I like having amir work from home, even though he’s crazy busy it’s nice knowing he’s upstairs and will be on time for dinner. Loving the kids slumber parties on our living floor, endless hours of play, and sitting down on the driveway floor watching the kids draw with chalk. Everyone just seems less stressed and in no hurry to be any where. I know this too shall pass so I’m going to make the best of it.
I set up a little art studio in our dining room knowing this would become one of our favorite spots in the house. I have yet to sit and create something but I feel like it’s the best gift I can give to the family right now. It’s been a great outlet for the kids. While Amir works night and day to sustain us, I’m trying to find ways to keep us all mentally healthy and happy.

The girls have been keeping super busy creating beautiful artwork. In these uncertain times I have realized a couple of things, one is that I always wanted to homeschool the girls and well, here’s my opportunity! Two, I always wanted to have an art studio for kids, well here is another opportunity and three, I always wanted the family home together for more than just on the weekends, well here’s my opportunity and I’m embracing each and everyone. Praying we all get through this unaffected by the negative and effected by the positive.
