March: Post Quarantine

I divided the month of March (the longest month on record to date) into a pre quarantine [link here] and now post quarantine. Qatar is not on full lockdown or curfew {yet?}, but most everything is shut down and the only outings we've had our he grocery store and a couple craft stores that were open {surprisingly} for additional school supplies.

1. Jason started working from home, which we are super thankful about and has been really helpful.
2. Jason has been wanting to make his own oat/almond/walnut milk variety and got on it with his "free" time. First batch!
3. I lamented the coffee shops closing and he {rightly} pointed out we can make most of the drinks at home and proceeded to order me a slated caramel latte with his newly made milk.
4. All dressed up and no where to go. 😆
5. I was laying in bed reading after we put the girls to bed at 7:30. At 9:00 I heard them call out to me. The little punks had built a "party" in their room in total silence. I am not sure if I am more annoyed or amazed at their antics. The next morning when Jason went into the room the first thing they said to him was "we built a party!"
6. Zoom chat for moms night in with some friends.
7. I looked up form my bed and saw this. It was terrifying.
8. Decided to clean the keyboard that hasn't been cleaned in probably nine years. 
9. CeCe enjoying her outside time and Olivia petting her. 

We celebrated International Waffle Day with homemade waffles on the patio. The sugar high was combated with bouncy castle and running around.

This also happened. Jason went to a shop for something (I can't even remember what now...) and found this on sale and it was the last one. So it came home with him. Now he's on the hunt for a third vehicle to add to the girls' garage...

Jason and the girls were supposed to do a Daddy-Daughter camping trip with friends the last weekend in March, but since camping was banned they obv couldn't go. Instead they setup the tent in the backyard (and vacuumed it - so proud). We made a bonfire and enjoyed the weather and I enjoyed the camping aspects of the fire, but also the comfort of my bed as I snuck inside for bedtime.

1. We have been having all our meals outside to enjoy the weather and break from the house while we can (#summeriscoming)
2. Evelyn helped me make cinnamon rolls.
3. They were really good!
4. Madi and her Zoey.
5. Visiting with our neighbors and practicing good "social distancing"
6. Me enjoying the view and a beverage in the evening.
7. Anahi and I braving the store for much needed school and craft supplies.
8. Zoey enjoying the bag from said school and craft supplies.
9. We brought boards with us from Baku to make these GPS signs of the places we've lived and Jason got the numbers printed and put on and hung them. LOVE how they turned out!!

We ordered a fun cookie decorating kit for the girls and spent an afternoon having fun amidst the homeschool chaos that has been happening the past few weeks (an entirely different post is needed for that - ha!)

The other huge thing that happened this month is that we have two new bike riders!! Last weekend the girls asked to take off their training wheels and they practiced riding. Evelyn picked it up fairly quickly and Olivia was determined and never gave up and caught up quickly to her sisters. We are so proud and loving taking short biking breaks during the day to get some fresh air and exercise.
