There are some things I don’t like about Facebook, but one thing I really appreciate is the Memories feature. This week, a memory popped up from March 2020 – the beginning of our quarantine after schools had closed.
Once school closed, I moved in with my daughter’s family to form our “bubble” during quarantine. As horrible as the pandemic has been, this was one positive effect that I wouldn’t have had without quarantine. We were able to spend so much time together and it really formed a stronger bond between us all. One thing I was able to do was spend the days with my 3-year old granddaughter while my daughter was working from home.
I tried to find activities and crafts to keep her entertained and learning since her daycare was closed. This picture popped up in my Facebook memories. We stapled and decorated 2 toilet paper tubes to make binoculars to go birdwatching. She was so thrilled with the idea of bird watching that it led to my buying her a real pair of binoculars for her birthday in May. She still brings them every time we take a walk.
