Visual Arts Contest

School events in the post-covid era are still a little lacking during the 2021-2022 school year. Fully masked and vaccinated, Little Miss braved an art competition though.

And she was awarded two “Superior” ratings and one “Excellent” rating for her entries.

Basically the top marks she could get without then being sent to the state level competition!


Remote Schooling

It’s certainly been an interesting year as Covid settled in and normalized completely different things… like remote school.

Newbie immediately settled into next to me at my desk like 2020 but Thunderer had a little time adjusting before taking over Redflare’s desk.

Part of the problem for Thunderer, I think, was that she and her cousin were remote into school together at the dining room table last year, so settling into any one place reinforced that her partner wasn’t here anymore.

Next year, now that everybody is vaccinated, we’ll be going back to physical school entirely, so we’ll have to get ready for another readjustment, but I think it’ll be for the best. They’re all ready to go back at this point, so barring some unique new strain, physical school will be back in our lives next fall.
