Over the past few months at home, my family has really gotten into gardening and growing our own produce. Yesterday, as I spent some time outside picking herbs for our dinner, I realized that I have learned quite a lot about life during social distancing and self-quarantine from something as simple as gardening.
For most of us, our lives made an abrupt flip flop since March with the appearance of Covid-19. Many families left work and school and never returned. But, it wasn’t just jobs and schools that were affected, grocery shopping changed as well.
Over the past few months my family has learned more than ever the values of shared activities. With Covid-19 ravaging the world, and the resulting Stay at Home and then eventually the Safer at Home policies, my husband and I found ourselves looking for fun but isolation-friendly things to do with our young kids.
