At the beginning of the pandemic, we were in a rental house and we were moving soon. When we were stuck inside for the first couple weeks, we would always go check on our new house being built. My dad, my sister and I would bring our bikes. My mom did not have a bike because when she was younger she ran into a tree while riding her bike and broke her ankle. There were times my mom would try out my sister’s bike and every time she would, her face looked like she was falling from the sky.
Soon later, we moved into our house which was fun. It was 4 DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY (April 11), so I had a drive-thru birthday which was kind of fun. Then my friend and I went on a bike ride.
But this whole time my mom was concerned about the pandemic. So as soon as it was possible, we were all getting vaccinated. It sure feels nice to not have to wear a mask as much and to eat at restaurants.
