December 3, 2021: The teachers needed a break today. Not just at our school but in our part of Michigan. They’re working really hard and under a lot of stress. Stuff has been going on. We did home school and that seemed to make mommy happy too. In the evening Finley got to go to a school friend birthday party with daddy. Mommy and I had our own special fun time. I hope all the other kids got to be close to their parents too.
