Busy few months… sort of

Let’s see, what has been going on lately? Nothing. A whole lot of NOTHING. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many of our normal activities to a grinding halt. We are using this time at home to get ahead on all of our 4-H work so that we can just sail through the second half of the year. We have been doing lots of ZOOM classes with 4-H. We made monster bookmarks and have been working through the Mars Base Camp kit for STEM days. We did a Cornell Bird Drawing class that was a LOT of fun. We learned a lot of new techniques and had fun doing so.

We took a family trip to Gatorland and had an enjoyable time visiting “classic roadside Florida”. We learned a lot about alligators and then hit the road. We stopped at Disney Springs for some Dole Whip floats.

B and I helped with Neighborhood Beautification day hosted by Keep Pinellas Beautiful. We walked all over the neighborhood and the park and picked up trash for the morning. It was great to help out our neighborhood and heep it nice looking.

We have planted a lot of new plants in the front garden. We enjoying taking outside time breaks during the day and relaxing in the garden area. We bought a lot of the new plants from Kerby’s Nursery in Seffner.

We built a basketball hoop and have been enjoying tossing hoops, or trying at least!

We have also been workin gon a service project for 4-H. We are helping to collect books and restock Little Free Libraries around the area. We have been poke hunting a lot so restock the libraries as we come across them in Safety Harbor.

We have been enjoying a LITTLE break in the weather and family walks. We visited Moccasin Lake Nature Park and Boyd Hill recently for hiking and nature time. We all need to be out of the house in the fresh air more often.

School is going well. I completed my online composition class at SPC this past week. I finished it in 8 weeks with a 99.9%. It is normally a 16 week class. I learned a lot about writing and think my skills improved a lot. I am just coasting along now finishing up my last few classes for the year. I will start at SPC in January with 10 credits as I am now working towards my AA degree as well as completing my high school years. I am basically on the same path that B is on and I hope to graduate when I am around 16.
