As my parents arrived, the schools closed for two days for a deep cleaning. The kids actually went back for one day that week before their scheduled day off, and then the district announced they'd be shifting to online learning for the next chunk of time.
We spent lots of time in the yard with Vern!
A portion of the museum had listening tracks of what Bigfoot may sound like in the woods. She pulled the headphones off, leaned over to me and with the widest eyes said, "Yeah, mom. I think I've heard that. I think I've seen one. I know I've seen his footprints in the forest."
Back to the flowers and lighter topic...
Later that afternoon, Alexis and my dad made cinnamon rolls (the night before Alexis and Mike's mom made cookies). They all turned out fantastic.
And by the end of day Sunday, things had closed down significantly. I had a strong and continual thought that the grandparents needed to get back home to Utah. My parents were set to leave Tuesday and Mike's parents were set to leave Thursday. They ended up all taking the same flight back on Tuesday, and all arrived before the earthquake hit in Utah on Wednesday. Who knows how things would have turned out had they not made adjustments, but we are so grateful the path they did take brought them all home safely. So grateful they were able to be here!
