A Non-Goodbye, But A “Thank You” Just The Same!

Three months.

54 days of online classes.

Sometimes one class. Sometimes two. A few times, three.

New vocabulary learned:

Muting. Unmuting. Patience. Technological difficulties.

But with our kids,

Our families,

Babysitters, nannies, and even grandparents,

We made it through together.

There were Cooking Shows,

Fairy Gardens,

Kandinsky-inspired artwork,

Fun Fitness Fridays,


COVID anecdotes,

Funny stories,

Serious moments,

And even screams of, “I’m going to the bathroom,”

Which made it seem a little bit more like school.Β πŸ™‚

Saying “goodbye” is never easy.

Saying “goodbye” in an online meeting

With parents, siblings, and babysitters is certainly strange.

Not bad.

Still sad.

Certainly less closure than in the past,

But with the hope that next year we will meet again.

Connect again.

Hug again … or maybe just “air hug” again.

Who could have expected this kind of ending?!

A non-ending. A pause. A we’ll-see-what-September-holds.

But for everyone wrapped up in our memories of the past 3 months,

Thank you!

This is a year that we hope will never be repeated,

But will also, never be forgotten.

Cheers to our COVID Crew!

We love each and every one of you.
