When All Hopes Are Dashed
Granddaughter Makayla was actually one of the lucky ones. Her High School Musical "Once Upon a Mattress" was performed just before the schools were shut down due to Covid 19. Other grandchildren, like students everywhere, have had most all of their hopes dashed. Not being in actual "brick and mortar" school means no concerts, plays, sports, and sadly-- no FRIENDS to do things with. Parents have had to pick up the slack to provide activities and Home-School for their children as well as being an available playmate.
Poor Daddy can't even get a nap on a Sunday afternoon. He begged for just 10 minutes and Maya clocked him down to the second.
Fortunately, kids can be resourceful when they want to be and "necessity" is truly the "mother of invention." Thomas and Maya turned a boring rainy day into a fun play day. They stacked up books and scrounged other materials in order to make a Skeet ball ramp. (They might not realize it, but being creative at solving problems and figuring out something to do can be very enjoyable!)
Keep using your imaginations, Thomas and Maya! Maybe not all your hopes are completely dashed after all!
