Olive Krug, age 7, and her brother Bruce, age 4, Easter morning. The shelter-at-home ruling took some time to get used to.

Being denied the experience of third grade is torture for my granddaughter Olive Krug of Topeka. She loves her teacher, Mrs. Kido, the new friends she has made, and just about everything about school. 

To help distract Olive, her mother, Louise, began a game of listing things that have either changed or remained the same because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They then included me (Mimi) in the emails.
