|Lemon cake with lemon glaze|

The entire day moved at Dean's pace. We started the day with donuts. Then we played video games and went to Target for a new outfit shopping spree (complete with gloves and masks on). We got take out at Chick-fil-a for lunch. Then we broke mini pinatas filled with candy. We had dinner takeout from Farm Burger and homemade lemon cake. Grandma came and sat at the front door so she could watch the present opening and have dinner and cake "with us". He played for three hours online with his best friend and another friend dropped off a lemon pound cake on our porch. It was all a great success.
It is hard to believe that we are wrapping up week 7 at home. I can hardly remember the last few days before the world stopped. It has been a shock. I hope I am not the only one who feels a bit brain dead some days. Most days go okay and others are really hard. The reality of this whole experience comes in waves. We are continuing the journey of cutting our own hair. This week Tim decided he couldn't take it anymore and submitted to our amateur skills.
School is moving at a great clip. We really are going to be done soon. We are still reading The Hobbit. Both teens are motivated to finish their least favorite subject, Physical Science. We are making some real strides. I told them if we didn't do it everyday it would be the only subject left and they would have to do it all day for a week or two. That motivated them to throw more energy into it. We did our very last Eureka Kit. It was a printing press and took us a long time to build this one. We learned more about the different types of levers and fulcrum points.
I can't believe April is over and yet it took forever to pass. Time has become such a strange thing with this pandemic.
