Summer Memories 2020

The summer break has come to an end this past week and it was definitely an odd one with the Coronavirus pandemic, but we adapted and made it as good as we could. We didn't do a lot of the vacations and fun things we'd planned to, but we did fit in some fun family activities and we went on some local trips and did our best to stay safe and healthy.

Like last year (, we asked the kids to write down the things they enjoyed and remembered from the summer break and Andrea took videos of them reading their lists and talking about the summer.

Very nice. Memories to cherish. They will look back at these and be reminded of events long not thought about. Good to recall.
