Today was a little tougher than the past few ones. Charlotte is having a difficult time seeing that we have to complete “school” tasks in her home. I think the ability to separate the two worlds, while in the same building is going to take some time. Of course, I am not being the most patient with that I either. But it will come. We all are dealing with some significant changes. I am grateful that I have the means and ability to be home with the kids and provide some form continued education.
On a positive note, almost the entire Crenshaw staff (her elementary school) did a drive-by parade this afternoon. That was huge for her and probably most the kids who all of sudden have lost the their teachers. At least in the sense they understand. Luckily, many will begin to convert or create opportunity to connect with the students via video chats. I think that will be great.
Of course, my two needs to learn how to video chat. They just wanted to make goofy faces the whole time that were chatting with my parents. I had to actually pull Macon aside so there could be some productive conversation.
Despite the loss of the spring season yesterday, we did manage to keep working for next year. A little positive news for student-athletes that schedules hopefully will be completed in the coming weeks for the 2020-2021 school year. Have to keep moving forward because we will get them on the field and courts soon.
One last note on moving forward. I would encourage everyone to take this time, for those able to, to find means to improve yourself. Find more time to workout. Read a new book. Take an online course. Self-development is going to be critical to maintain some sanity and take the next step when we get past this all.
