I've been getting pictures of letters and notes from my students for the last few days. It's been so lovely to hear from a few of them. If I've received a handwritten note, I'm responding with a handwritten note and emailing a photo back. Three of my students, two of which are former students, have reached out via Google Docs. It's nice to be able to have a conversation like interaction.
I went out to get the mail today and saw my neighbor filling her bird feeders. We chatted for a few minutes staying in our own yards. The interaction was brief, but it was nice to see her doing well. She said they were hanging in there.
Today, Clare and Melanie hosted a Zoom meeting to connect educators. I listened as teachers talked about their concerns and current situations. I didn't have advice or anything to add to the conversation, but it was nice to be part of something with people.
I got to my slice late tonight. I've been working on different things all day today. No naps today, but I accomplished quite a bit. I didn't get my outdoor exercise, though, which I hope to do tomorrow. I also hope I see a neighbor. I also hope I get a letter from a student. All the ways I can connect, I hope for.
