A Very Different School Start

 It is the start of a new school year for Finley and Cainan.  Being back in the United States where the virus continues to rage means not returning to school normally.  After a lot of debate in our district, the year started two weeks later than normally and in a hybrid form.  Finley and Cainan will be home Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday doing school virtually from their bedrooms.  And Thursday and Friday they will be in school.  Full masks on, 6 feet apart, and very little social life for these two lie ahead.

So difficult this will be for these two who are returning to a school they have been gone for 3 years.  Kids are different now.  It is like starting over.  I feel for them.  Their anxiety is high.  I know they will adjust - they always do.

On top of all of that, we are still in our temporary housing, so we are still unsettled.
