Sunny Days, COVID19, America and Will School Open?

July 7, 2020 in Children's Health Education

Hi Friends,

So much is going on and this lock down has really been dragging on. I hope all of you are safe and surviving all the intricate parts of COVID19.  My daughter in-law wrote a post for me about her sadness when she returned to clean out her empty classroom . You may relate to her.

On a happy note I have been taking part in a YouTube Live everyday, all about social media and the online world. It’s been great having something to look forward to every morning and fun to get to know the participants. Monday was day 109 and Pat Flynn is the young laid off business entrepreneur family guy leading us.

In this group I met Grandma Goodie’s Bible Stories who is a woman creating short videos for young children to learn simple bible stories and to give warn out parents a wholesome 5-10 min break. She has a YT channel, is a real hoot and worth checking out.

I have also met Mike’s Home ESL which is a teaching tips YT channel. He teaches English in China and creates videos to help other ESL teaches.
He is a real fun and generous guy. We hit it off and he sang and recorded my song “Don’t Spread Your Germs Around” with his ESL classroom, the kids are adorable.

And I met Mrs Abuela during Mike’s Home ESL Live YT events. She started putting her videos up on YouTube for her students in France during COVID19. She is a doll and in her simple way engages the kids with lessons and songs on YT.

I hope you will check out my awesome new friends, I know you will love them and be encouraged by them.

My husband was inspired on the Fourth of July and wrote a beautiful Poem.

“America, the Home that I Love” by Michael Ginese

It’s Fourth of July in The USA,
There’s much to give thanks for
Much good’s come our way,
To gripe and complain is as easy as pie
As it is to nurse the hurts, of years gone by.
No nation’s been flawless, none pure as glass.
We’ve all made mistakes, every color & class.
America’s no exception, we have a checkered past
But we didn’t start slavery, we ended it at last.
So as you consider, where you sit now
Be Thankful how far we’ve come, and of America, be proud.
We’re not all we should be, but we’re not what we were.
We strive to be better, and to move on in love.
Violence is tragic, no solution indeed
What we must look for, in every face that we see.
Is the image of God & His love full and free.
May we carry the torch, of freedom and peace
So every child has a place at the feast.
The feast of safety, of abundance and love
Here in America, the home that I love
