    Return to school and routine

    A few weeks ago, my girls started school and my little guy went to school and started kindergarten. This is their third week at school. My girls had to get used to going to school again. My little guy had getting used to being at school all together. I had to get into the routine of making lunches, taking to the bus, pick ups from the bus, and everything that comes with having kids at school. On top of that there are the concerns involved with this COVID going on. Making sure my kids have masks and wear them at school, when needed. Wearing masks at the bus. Making sure…
