The Sunday Edit: As we enter week 4 of social distancing due to COVID-19, we have had our share of meltdowns, kids and grown-ups alike. It’s not easy but I also appreciate how nice it is to have this time at home together, especially with our newborn. We were so over-scheduled as a family and no matter how much we tried to cut out activities, it never really worked.
