The factual version

It’s no secret that 2020 has been a pretty horrible year. But thanks to distancing and hand-washing, so far we remain in good health. We’re thankful to be busy with work and school as we try to make the best of hard times.

The last social event we had in March was Rosie’s twelfth birthday party, and in lockdown we celebrated Lucy turning fourteen. This fall, both girls made the big transition from homeschool to public school (100% online). It’s gone great!

The pandemic dashed plans for a trip to England and a concert by Colleen Ballinger, but we managed a “bubble” vacation with dear friends to the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. Rosie learned how to ride a unicycle, and Lucy can now do 21 pushups. Our most cherished pandemic practice is that every day we go on a one-mile family walk.

We [sincerely do] wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year! We hope someday soon we can be with you to fill in the blanks. Till then, much love!
