Being able to work from home means taking lunch breaks and hanging out with the little one while he cools in the pool. It's going to be a very hot week, so we set everything up just in time.
 
Cases in Michigan for COVID-19 continue to rise. We're seeing 200-300+ cases each day for the last week. That isn't anything like what is happening in the southern states who re-opened much earlier. It is an indictment that opening too soon and not having mask compliance will absolutely cause clusters and spread of COVID. Michigan is not immune to this, as evidenced by the increase in cases and the outbreak that continues to grow based on just one bar in East Lansing, Harpers, which have 100+ cases linked to it now.

We spent the afternoon hanging out and enjoying the pool, mosquito-free.
The water isn't quite warmed up, but little kids will make it work if they can, just for the excitement of it all.

I set up a little pool area in the back, complete with screened tent. It will help combat the mosquitoes, which absolutely love the pond out back in the woods.

This is just so hilarious to me. Look at him playing animal crossing while laying in bed.

He's been having fun with his theatre summer camp this week.

Walked by this morning and saw Chris helping the little one with his lines for theater camp.

He really enjoyed his class a few weeks ago on Saturdays, so I signed him up for the local theater's virtual summer camp. It's one week and all on zoom. Since dad is a graphic designer, he whipped up a nice Zoom background and a green screen for appropriately themed backgrounds.

Every time I get up during the day I come back to this guy hanging out in the new office chair that came last week. It's like we are fighting over enjoying it.
