A Very Covid Mother’s Day

We hit another holiday during the era of social distancing – Mother’s Day! It was as perfect as could be with plenty of alone time, well-behaved children, good food, mom FaceTime and a little chilling on the couch as a family to end the evening.

Another Remote Fiesta 5K

In the seven years we’ve been able to make it, 2020 marked the second year the Fiesta 5K race, benefitting the JHU Robert Packard Center for ALS Research, was held virtually.

There is still so much uncertainty. What is clear, however, is we’re trying to make it work as best we can!
