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 #19 – The Bjorkquist Family, knows how to get through quarantine.
I loved them so much I wanted to be quarantined with them.
Dad has still been working part-time, and Mom was a stay-at-home mom and a part-time cook at a childcare that closed. Mom really miss their old normal and she is not sure she enjoys her new job as Homeschool Teacher!
The younger kids miss friends the most, and believe it or not school! Their son misses soccer and their oldest daughter REALLY misses her job and the dolphins at the Mirage Dolphin Habitat! As a family they miss going out to dinner and going to the movie theater the most! They really have learned to appreciate family and found joy in eating meals together since they are no longer running in different directions all the time.
They have so much time on their hands, so they have been crafting, doing puzzles, and baking! They are lucky to have their parents (grandparents) pool since the heat has arrived. It is nice to have a place to visit and relax in the sun!
The kids miss school … although their younger daughter has been doing home bound school, she mostly misses friends and her “real” teachers. However, she has had plenty of schoolwork! Their son on the other hand has had zero work. That’s the difference between charter and public school!
Homeschooling has definitely been a challenge for them and a learning experience. It amazes them how resilient children can be and how quickly they adjust to change. They are thankful that the charter program has been so efficient!
Once lock down is lifted, they look forward to traveling to Texas to visit family and a beach house for SUMMER VACATION!
Thank you to the Bjorkquist Family for sharing your story!
