What I like about a pandemic is that we don’t have to go anywhere. We just sit in our house doing work or playing games. Also, we get to spend a lot of time with our family.

Like my mom, she is making dinner almost every night for the past few weeks. But the best part of all is that I get to spend a lot of time with our new puppy, Benjamin.  

But since I haven’t left the street in over a month, I’m starting to notice how beautiful our neighborhood is.

But sometimes, I do feel a little bit lonely, with no one to play with (besides my neighborhood friends). I miss all my classmates at school, I miss the park, I miss all my teammates on my baseball team.

It’s not really that fun. I even miss school. I miss going to restaurants like Full Moon Sushi and TJ’s Woodfire Pizza.

But living in a pandemic has also taught some crucial things, like to be thankful for my health and family and to always wash my hands.

What are some of the other experiences kids had in this pandemic? I hope to hear all about it at school!
