JANBAZIAN FAMILY

Justice:  Following fall Woodworking classes offered through EIE that taught the basics, we picked up a used lathe for home use.  Great timing! Justice is shown here turning a plate in our new home workshop.

Valor:   Geocaching has been a great way to get outdoors and steer clear of other people while on a “treasure hunting” adventure.  It’s free, it’s fun and it’s in your neighborhood too.   Look into it at Geocaching.com  (We have found dozens of caches, but pictured with Valor is the first one we have hidden for others!)

Having taught herself video editing skills to help her mother with online Youtube classes, Glory has manipulated the footage and created her own fun video projects like this one:

WALTON FAMILY

Thomas:  Putting to practice the art skills he learned from Miss Marissa’s Art Classses at EIE.  Way to go Thomas, awesome art!

Thomas and Family getting a head start on their Victory Garden.  May your labor be rewarded with an awesome crop of delicious and health vegetables.

Thomas learning about the fine art of BBQ.   Yummy!

LIU FAMILY

The top favorite thing my 7-year-old son loves to do during this time of quarantine is to READ.  In the last 50 days or so, he has read over 300 library books.  He also re-read many books from our home library.  Mom checked out over 200 books from various libraries right before the close-down.  Several libraries also over pick-up during this time.  Thanks to these libraries, we don’t feel so bored.

Making noodles from scratch is another thing the family picked up.  Lots of dried noodles were wiped out on supermarket shelves, so it means it’s time to make our own noodles.  We also learned a few new dishes since not all the food items were available at the markets.

Nature Center Virtual Tour
Our yard has become a certified wildlife habitat for a few years.  My son also keeps a shelf of nature collection consisting of rocks, seed pods, feathers, shells, and dead insects.  He video recorded a few clips introducing his friends to his collection and posted it on facebook (we do not have a youtube channel).
Attached are some pictures of his collection.
Pretend Submarine Excursion
My son came up with this game because he wanted to travel but can’t during this time.  He set up a pop-up sun shelter and tipped it sideway and declared it to be his submarine.  He called it “Hawaiian Submarine.”  Before each take-off, he announces through his walkie-talkie all the features of the submarine, destinations offered, menu, and in-submarine entertainment.  Dad rides in the submarine. Mom’s job is to open up restaurants all over the world so when the submarine stops, the passengers can enjoy a meal at Mom’s.  Pretend countries we visited during this week were India (as seen on the photo attached), Japan, Mexico, Korea (photo of Korean meal attached), Taiwan and Vietnam.
Gardening
We always garden as a family and even more so during this time of quarantine.  We dug up patches of grass and planted vegetables and flowers.  We loved to see the little creatures that come to our garden.  They come here to raise their families and we are happy to provide them the place to do so.
We are also eating well from our bounty.  Please see attached pictures.
