Week ONE of COVID-19

We have been watching the rest of the world and following the coronavirus updates. It seems crazy how quickly all this has happened and the world has turned upside down and then suddenly stopped.

We have been planning a family trip to AFRICA for over a year. We applied for passports, for all the kids, last June. We purchased our tickets last August and have been planning ever since. Unfortunately, after President Trump's announcement on Wednesday evening, March 11, we decided to cancel our trip. We are so disappointed, but also thankful that the decision was made for us. We are planning to go sometime around Thanksgiving - Lord willing!

As of Friday, March 13 at 4pm, the girls school is suspended per the coronavirus. Our church, The Bridge Church, has suspended all Sunday worship gatherings. And the government is asking groups no larger than 10 to meet together. Here is our WEEK ONE of social distancing in photos:

Bridge Kids at home - Nehemiah

Lots of home workouts for Meg.
Here Ella joined me for a 90 second plank and rocked it!

We are playing ALL the games and making up new ones. 
UNO is actually the current crowd favorite!

Making St. Patrick's Day cookies

Thursday was a beautiful day so we played at the beach for a few hours in the afternoon.

It can't get much better than the beach all afternoon and homemade pizza for dinner.

Zucchini pizza boats - yum!

Friday was another beautiful day so Jake took off of work and joined us at Topsail Beach. And just in time... On our way home from Topsail, around 1pm, it was announced that Wrightsville Beach and Topsail beaches are closed until March 31.
