Our Family’s Stay at Home Activities Week 11 in Pictures

Life imposes things on you that you can’t control, but you still have the choice of how you’re going to live through this.”
— Celine Dion

Week 11

Yep, we’re heading into month three. Week 11 of continuing to shelter in place. It’s more challenging simply because our state in opening back up, but we’re staying put.

watching a bunny in the rain

Fortunately, there’s still plenty of fun and learning to be accomplished while sitting at home. Remember the water snakes from week 8? The garter snake from week 6? The frog from week 4?

This week it was a bunny rabbit!

more painting in travel trailer

Back at the trailer for a bit this week. We even had the cutest little helper join us for the first time. She used her own (dry) paint brush to help her daddy do some touch ups.

Joeli's niece time

Seriously one of my favorite parts over the past few weeks has been watching the girls (and Wyatt) embrace this time with their niece. She is so very loved.

pink powder gender reveal

The MOST EXCITING part of our stay at home activities yet? The gender reveal for our next grandbaby!

As you can see, and much to the surprise of pretty much everybody, it’s a GIRL! I was cracking up when I opened the envelope to add the correct powder.

This should be fun! The males in our house are getting seriously outnumbered though: 7-3.

just a girl and her dolls

The good things is, Riley is really taking to baby dolls right now so it’s the perfect opportunity to begin preparing her for the new baby.

It may take a little getting used to, considering she gets all the baby love right now, but I’m sure she’ll be a terrific big sister!

toddler asleep at dinner

Fun Foto: This is the first time she’s fallen asleep while eating (as a toddler, of course).

I feel like I have at least a couple photos of my kids doing this through the years. Oddly enough, most of the time it’s while eating spaghetti. Something about pasta filling up the belly makes them tired I guess.

SpaceX shuttle launch May 2020

Oh, back to learning through this time, we were able to watch the SpaceX Shuttle Launch this week as a family.

Fun Fact: When Space Shuttle Atlantis launched its Final Mission to Hubble, we were in Daytona Beach and drove down to watch the launch live.

It was exciting to be able to watch this launch live and relive our memories from that day as well.

time for cervical biopsy

Definitely not as fun or exciting as the rest of the week, but I had to have a cervical biopsy this week. Insurance and the virus had delayed it long enough. I had to have a check up from my last biopsy after the endometrial hyperplasia.

Covid-19 did make things a little crazy in that Colby couldn’t come inside with me. Plus, we did the procedure in my doctor’s office rather than a surgical room.

And, an emergency pushed everything back so I waited over two hours in the room until I could head in for the procedure.

I was so thankful for modern technology in this moment! Otherwise I would have been staring at the walls for hours.

As soon as I woke up from the anesthesia, Colby accompanied me in to talk to the doctor and wheel me out. Now we just wait and not let my anxiety get the best of me.
