On Monday I posted about going back to school and asked for some feedback, and I thank the people who commented and sent me private messages. I also put up a poll on my Instagram to see how other parents/educators feel. I feel better that most parents are sending their parents back to school, given my Twitter and Facebook feeds, I thought that I was the only person who thought the plan was good enough to send my kids, and I wondered what I was missing. It was pretty split about whether people were worried about mask wearing, class sizes, and getting sick, but overall I think we are willing to accept some risk for the reward of having our kids back in the classroom. Things are changing and I think our government is doing as well as they can, trying to balance a variety of interests, but we are remaining positive here and we are excited about the school year.
We had some of our fish that we brought home from our summer vacation. We panfried it in butter with a bit of homemade fish fry dust and it tasted almost as good as when we had it before. And the potatoes were fresh from Shelburne.
E enjoyed a soccer camp at High Park this week with our neighbours. Masks on drop off is the norm now, although they don't need to wear it during the camp.
