So here we are, in the middle of a pandemic … it’s been 56 days since the schools in Saskatchewan closed … that’s eight weeks of social-distancing … 56 days (or more) without seeing extended family … eight weeks without seeing any friends … 56 days of homeschooling … eight weeks at home … 56… Continue reading What Do You Want the Story to Be?
