4-H members staying home to “help flatten the curve”

So, like everyone in the world, I’ve had to do self-quarantine.

I must say, if you don’t think about it, it seems boring, but I think I’ve done more than some people during this COVID-19 crisis.

I used to not have the internet up at my house, until this happened.

Now that my family’s had free time, we finally got some WiFi hooked up.

Sure, it doesn’t sound like much, but it was pretty exciting, everyone was all happy and exploring the web now that we could do so without using too much data.

Then, I went to Kamloops.

Now, I know we aren’t supposed to be leaving our houses, but this was important, we needed to pick up food and such, but the best part was McDonald’s. I’ve never appreciated it so much in my life!

Other than that, I am doing just fine. I think it’s important to keep in contact with my friends during social distancing, so that’s what I’ve been doing, texting and playing games with them.

I’ve had a scheduled day during the “school” week, just to make it seem more like I was in my classroom, even if I’m just in my office.

I have chores of course to keep me busy.

So far, my family has managed to clean out two of our animal pens, the miniature horses and the goats, two hours for each!

Now, sure, people may think this is torture and that they just want to get out and roam free, but it’s important to social distance. If we all stay home, the faster we can see our friends and family.

We need to do all we can to stop the spread of COVID-19, so please, stay home so we can flatten the curve.

Also, a big thank you to all the healthcare workers that are working around the clock to keep us safe and healthy.
