The New Normal Continues

Moving into week two of the COVID-19 quarantine, and we spent it trying to keep spirits up as we juggle school, work and play.

The New Normal

Thanks to COVID-19, the entire world has been turned upside down. For us, thankfully, it just means hanging out at home as a family – juggling work, home school and down time. Here are some examples of how we spent the first days…which likely will turn into months!

Lucky 7th at GWL

Some fateful bad weather steered us to Great Wolf Lodge in 2014, and we’ve been back every year since. This year proved just as fun (and exhausting) as ever!

A Sweet Day

To celebrate what is always likely a rare occurrence, half the family watched a chunk of game 1 at Nationals Park while the team was in Houston – where our hometown team…

Start of Fall at Cox Farms

Another fall season, and another great day spent at Cox Farms with cousins! It was sunnier and warmer than last year, but the hayride, apple cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking got us in the mood for the best season of the year!

Time at the County Fair!

Arlington County puts on a good fair, and we enjoyed as much as we could during yet another year! It was a hot one, but it didn’t stop the rides, games and pursuit of as much free junk as possible with the Kohr buddies.
