Adjusting to home for the holidays: remote learning editionThis is easily my favorite time of year. It always has been. I love all of it, especially right about now during the holiday season. Although this year looks different, coming home for Thanksgiving Break felt just as, if not more, special. I hadn’t seen my brothers since August and hadn’t seen my parents much either due to travel restrictions. Thanksgiving Day was different, but not in a bad way for us. We still woke up, watched a bit of the Macy’s Day Parade and began our cooking, enjoying the day just the five of us. We hadn’t been together in so long we didn’t really notice how different our holiday was this year.
