It's day 2 for us of near complete social isolation. A small rythm is starting to develop to our days, since we began doing this last Friday, but had more options available to go out at that time. Now, we're basically at home all the time.
From an economic standpoint, it's interesting. I'm still working, though a bit reduced, thanks to technology. I can coach online, though it's far from my preferred way of doing things.
This morning we took a digital field trip to the San Diego zoo. The kids portion of their website has live cameras in several enclosures. So while we ate our breakfasts, we spotted a tiger pacing around its enclosure, three polar bears having snacks, and an owl looking around as if confused that the park was empty as well. We played games on the website and then 'went to school'.
We did the preschool's watch party hosted by one of her teachers. She doesn't tend to interact much, but today they did a little education about woodpeckers and talked about a woodpecker they missed seeing at school. She played with blocks (the theme of the week for this week) and showed me what a woodpecker would do.

Eventually that evolved into tag in the backyard, hide and go seek, and fort building.
