There is no shortage of cuteness here at the Patty home while we're all here during this worldwide pandemic.
Tyler and Lara bring their family here twice a week, just to give the kids a chance to stretch their legs, and spend time with family (which is allowed here in Czech if you all are locked down and have no contact with anyone else).
Caleb and Haley arrived here at the end of December from Albania, thinking they would be here until just after Jenna's birth, and then would head home. But because the borders closed before they could leave, they're spending this pandemic here with us.
We are enjoying and soaking in all the time we get with them!
And these three boys are enjoying a lot of great cousin time!
This afternoon, as the sun warmed our patio, I decided it was time to bring out the summer table and benches!
And set up a little art studio for all of us to enjoy!
There is something so satisfying about paper, pencils and crayons, and a little imagination!
While Claire created Charlie's favorite car (number 95, Lightening McQueen!), his mom, dad and Jenna enjoyed the warm sunshine on the swing that got moved over here.
In the meantime, Tyler and Lara were inside doing church online with their Ostrava church family!
These are unusual days, but definitely not unpleasant ones. We're doing what we can to "flatten the curve" by staying home, and keeping busy here with work, projects and family.
Thankful for God's kindness in letting us experience this all together.
