In March of 2020, everything changed and, nothing was the same. Everything shut down and closed, even school! I never thought school would close, but it did. I was sad at first, but after a while I got used to it. Once I got used to staying home, school started again. I was so excited, until my mom told me it would only be half a day. We also had to take lots of safety precautions, like wearing a mask and not eating indoors. I was not thrilled with that information, but I was still happy to be going to school with my teacher and friends. I wasn’t happy when the pandemic hit. I was sad, but it gave me the chance to spend the time that I usually spend playing at recess with my family.
I took the pandemic was an opportunity to spend more time with my family.
