Just returned from an extremely short walk with my hair plastered to my head. Thanks humidity! I think hubs is up, so I will take a shower. But first, I received a text from our older son. The family loves their second home in the country, but needed something else for the kids to keep busy without camp this summer. They are both back at figure skating and ice hockey practices by the way. So my daughter-in-law found a pool club with three different pools which practices social distancing and all the necessary safety measures. It appears that they have the complex to themselves. . That relaxes me a bit. ~The photo is of our Ice Princess on the left with her younger, taller, skinny, long-haired brother on the right.~

She's been posing like that since she was 5 years old.

@DianneN That's funny. Does she imitate anyone or has she found this posture herself?

@MALUSE She has many moves. I think she's precocious and has been exposed to this in the theater, skating world, concerts, music videos, and billboards in New York City.

Your grandchildren look happy in that picture and that pool in the background certainly looks inviting. It's great that your DIL found a pool club that will offer the kids a place to swim with all the social distancing requirements.

Thanks. Safety is so important and I only hope it's safe enough. These kids swim like fish and need to burn off their energy.

@DianneN we belonged to a swim club when I was growing up and my brother and I would swim all day. We slept like rocks at night.

We try to social distance at our pool. But are we blowing it when we play catch with a floaty ball?

i wonder right now about the impact. I hear school district after school district say that they are only doing 1/2 days of school 3 days a week and the rest virtual. We may end up years behind.

I don't know what's happening in NYC right now. My grandson goes to a private school which did a fine job online. My granddaughter attended public school, but was accepted to a private online school in the gifted program and worked her head off. I think my DIL and son are looking into the Stanford University online program for her. We will see. Personally, I don't want them back in school until this virus is long gone.

@DianneN i don't either, I just worry about the kids that don't have access to the internet or computers.

@DocAndersen That was a huge problem in NYC public schools. 1,200,000+ students and not enough computers to go around. Many of the poor kids didn't even have WiFi.

I was still sound asleep then. It's cool here, but the humidity is 95%. I like to walk early in the morning while it's cool, but the humid air will be with us all dayl ong with rain later.

@DianneN Scar had started in about 45 minutes earlier with his regular inquisitive "Meowt?" which is okay, I can mumble "No" and go back to sleep...but he starts ratcheting the volume bit by bit until he's basically screaming in my ear, at which point I give up because he's too fast to slap

@myklj999 Doodles was the exact same. He would just sit and try to stare me awake, then add sweet little meows, and finally loud, demanding ones. He guilted me awake not because he was hungry, but because he had seen a critter in the yard. All I can say is enjoy your days with Scar. I wish I could have them all back with Doodles.

Yes. Very few kids and masks and designated spaces on the ice. My grandson is a goalie, so it's only him and the coach shooting pucks.
