Military (Home) School

With this coronavirus quarantine in full effect, I am now Stella's primary teacher. She's not super impressed with my teaching style and has been dropping me hints all week that I need to tone things down.

Happy 10th Birthday, Porter!

Here's Porter blowing out his birthday candles:

We think Porter had a pretty good 10th birthday. He enjoyed a birthday scavenger hunt through the house and managed to find 5 different LEGO sets!

Last Day of Traditional School

Porter certainly lucked out! He was able to celebrate his birthday with his friends on the last day of traditional school (most likely for this school year). Starting Monday, all schooling in Kentucky will take place at home due to coronavirus quarantine.

For Porter's birthday, he wanted to grab breakfast with Daddy before school. He picked Wild Eggs and had a proper feast!
