The Coronatography Project is my personal project and something that allows the families of this rare moment in history (COVID-19 Lockdown) to capture what is was like during the pandemic. Its meant to bring light and hope during such a dark time. This quarantine time capsule will become a part of history and will tell great stories in the future. When everything else is gone, photography is all we have left. I hope this project enlightens and bring smiles… we are in this together! #VegasStrong #familylove
Family #10 – The Arias Family, this mom has her hands full. Dad is a lieutenant with NHP so he is continuing to work as scheduled. He now strips down before coming into the house and his clothes and self go straight to being washed as soon as they come through the door. Mom is an executive director of a hospitality non-profit and she is now working from home while taking on the additional “non-paid positions” of 1st grade teacher, gymnastics instructor, speech therapist, Olympic laundry-er, boo-boo kisser, and full-time mommy. She is a ROCK STAR!!!
Things this family miss the most are Starbucks iced coffees and playing at the park however they have learned to appreciate Hugs! They miss giving everyone in their life hugs. The virtual hugs just aren’t the same. For new activities they have raised butterflies from larva as a “science project” and started working on speaking Spanish. Mom is finally working on her yoga handstand.
Do the kids miss school? HAHA, Not at all. They are having a blast at home together. Not having the morning stress of actually getting them to school has made their mornings fun and relaxing. For Mom, it’s super stressful trying to balance homeschooling and working from home by herself but she is loving every minute of it she says. It’s the silver lining in this entire mess. They’re working on skills like cursive, analog clocks, and have set up a “store” to practice money. Luckily for Mom, her oldest is in first grade so she is teaching stuff she actually knows. LOL – Mom said, “Thank god she not taking calculus or physics- I’d be lost.”
They had a family vacation that needed to be cancelled to the Dominican Republic and they absolutely cannot wait to reschedule it and sit on the beach together.
Thank you to the Arias family for sharing your story!
