HEY EVERYBODY SMILE ITS FRIDAY! - dave le minion | Meme Generator

It's our last Friday before "real" school starts back, friends!! Ahhh!! My boys are more excited about this "first" day of school than they have ever been before. They NEED this. Mama needs this too. 😂 Not that virtual school has been hard on me. My boys are very self-sufficient and (fairly) responsible when it comes to doing what they need to be doing without me having to hover. But they are bored bored bored and ready to have some normalcy back in their lives.

Hey girl heyyyyyyy!


Ok. So...second Friday of distance learning. How did things go this week after a full 5 days in a row? Honestly?

Here are a couple of moments for you...

-Mason and his classmates apparently have a giant group text going on so they are constantly texting each other during "class". I walked in to check on him at one point yesterday and saw him texting while the teacher was talking on the screen and snatched his phone up. Then I looked at the computer screen at all the other classmates in their little zoom boxes and saw half of them looking down at something...presumably their own phones. So he's no longer allowed his phone during class time. Lesson learned.

-Yesterday there was a region-wide outage and most of the class couldn't log on to their zoom meetings on and off throughout the day. There were definitely lots of frustrated mom texts being exchanged!! 😂 Thankfully, MISD sent out a robocall, a text and email after a little while explaining the situation and basically tell us not to panic. Or stop panicking. Whatever. So I did and it straightened itself out and the kids all got a pretty light day because of it. It's a learning curve. Things happen. We roll with it. 😎

But other than that, the only complaint is that "it's boring". I get it. We all do. But our fingers are still crossed that they'll be able to go back to school on September 3rd. One can only hope. 🤞

Anyway, since its Friday, it's time for all things "favorite" from the week! So here we go...

 Oh my goodness. It's the first time we've really really appreciated a Friday in a very long time around here! Today is Day 2 of distance learning for my boys and although it's fun and exciting for the first few days, I know they are definitely going to appreciate having their weekend. Yesterday Mason said, "The only thing I don't like about school is that it takes up so much of my day." 😂 It's going to be a huge change to go from doing whatever you want all day every day to sitting in front of a computer for 7 hours, 5 days a week.

 Happy Wednesday, friends!!  It's Back to School Eve over here and although life is about to get so much more hectic, I must say that we are all ready for it! Am I going to miss all the lazy days of puzzles and family movie nights? YES. But goodness, y'all. My kids need some structure and between you and honestly wouldn't kill them to pick up a book every once in a while. It's time to get back to school!

But before I go any further, I want to give a big shoutout to all you teachers! You guys are amazing and I am so very thankful and appreciative of you!! I know that this year is going to be weird, crazy, stressful and a little scary at times but please know that I am praying for you, I am grateful for you and I promise that we'll give extra good gifts this year. 😉 THANK YOU, TEACHERS!!
