Back to school update.

August 27, 2020

What a whirlwind month! It feels like I am just floating around aimlessly half the time not knowing where to begin with our piles of boxes and project list a mile long. We downsized in storage space, which in a way is a good thing. It forces you to minimize and let go of things you aren’t using.

Nashville though? We really love it so far. It is full of lush green views and kind people. There have been many new neighbors who have left things on our doorstep and waved shouts of welcome every time they walk by. It has been so comforting in a time where everything feels flipped upside down.

We decided to move before the pandemic even began. We knew we needed to move for long term goals of community, planting roots, and good school options. We didn’t know what to expect this year, but the school we initially enrolled them started a few weeks ago. They are attending with all day mask wearing and a bunch of safety precautions the school carefully prepared. I respect our teachers so much as they navigate many new guidelines. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​

(When the kids surprised me with birthday breakfast.)

We don’t know what to expect this year, and continue to follow the state updates. These are such strange and surreal days, and yet in my children’s little worlds they are always positive and adapting. They are just so happy to be able to see people and bring a packed lunch to school. ha! I always feel like a perpetual student in the school of motherhood.

We are also feeling immense gratitude to even be able to put our hands to work again, and keep the ship afloat. I know it is a privilege to even have the option. Thinking of so many of you navigating difficult scenarios. I hope you find renewed strength and hope. Thank you for connecting with us here!

  • Thank you so much for sharing this! My husband is a teacher and my son is entering kindergarten but I’ve opted to have him learn virtually while I attempt to balance work. My husband will be teaching following the hybrid model, so I’m so worried about school starting for him even though the school has so many precautions in place. I truly hope that everyone stays safe and that schools can carefully open elsewhere around the country when the right time comes.

    • Teachers that are navigating the online and in person learning are true champs. I have been really impressed with the safety precautions of our school, and hopefully it will be the same for your husband! Good luck to you all this year!
