It’s been a long while since we went out to the park! Today we decided to venture out — it’s already summer, after all… Sweetie pie, I know, we’ve made so many fun plans to go on trips, go out in nature, and go shopping in the malls… But none of these we can do this summer.
A walk in Nature is all we can do now to stay safe and healthy. You were content and perfectly happy. You listened to birds chirping, watched fish swimming up the stream, and spotted a squirrel chewing on nut. Using our retired digital camera, you took a lot of pictures of what you saw, including mommy and daddy and a lot of trees. You eagerly made plans to for us to travel with friends families when the virus is over. It’s really been a long while that you, the kid who dislikes hiking, even enjoyed hiking today.
Our most recent trip (to Cincy) was last December, almost 7 months ago. We did have a great time traveling together with A’s family and visiting M’s family. Seems like a lifetime ago, though. It feels so good to be surrounded by the tall, green trees…
On the other hand, just a while ago before I started writing this post, I read on the Washington Post that Dr. Egon Ozer from Northwestern University discovered that the virus is mutating to become even more infectious… Sigh. Maybe we’ve still got to stay at home more. Sigh, the kiddos can’t wait to play with each other, but social distancing is really hard for kids playing together. And, really don’t know what’s going to happen when school starts.
There’s so much uncertainty. Yet despite the uncertainty, we’ve got to carry on. Life will not be the same maybe for a long time. However, the fun loving heart remains unchanged. We’ll do this as much as possible, as long as we stay healthy and safe. We’ll also find all those other different ways of having fun. I promise, if you let me, my sweetest.
I love you.
