We've been plodding along like pretty much everyone else...just trying to make the best of what remains of 2020. Lucy finished a month of physical therapy for her foot only to have her pain increase during certain exercises. The PT thought she wasn't benefiting from it so we've stopped going for now, with just some light exercises to do at home.
Our weather seems to be bipolar lately, swinging from freezing cold to fairly warm to windy/stormy. We had a tornado watch and it got dark and ominous so quickly that Kate and I grabbed the pets and holed up in the basement for a bit. Len and Lucy were at physical therapy so missed a good bit of it. This was taken at a little before 4pm.
On one particularly warm day, the girls grabbed some dish soap and the hose to make a slippery trampoline during their lunch/recess time.
Other than the strong winds, the weather has been great for being outside. Brinkley and I stole away for an hour on Friday.
The girls had their annual eye exam and a little lesson from the doctor about what the inside of their eyes look like.
We've not been able to do any in-person Honeycomb service projects but we were able to participate in one at home last week. We packed up some meals-to-go that will be delivered to Chicago families in need.
The star charts I created last month are still going well into this month. Kate finished her November chart already and her treat this time was to pick out a craft to work on together. We picked out a few things to create a holiday door ornament. A little hot glue and some ribbon and viola!
Bells practice continues, as does the never-ending goal of teaching Lucy to read notes. They just don't seem to stick in her brain yet!
And finally, YiaYia and Pappou surprised us with a box of homemade baklava yesterday! We're eating some now and saving the rest of Thanksgiving dessert! So very, very yummy.
