It was back to routine in our home, as the kids went back to school. I sat at home on zoom lectures for the week, which was a little constricting for me, but, by the grace of the Lord, made it through.
The most dramatic moment this week was probably the evening when my son beat my husband in MarioKart. Let's just say it was a touchdown dance gone out of style, and the giggling ensued for the entire evening.
