2020… what can we say that hasn’t already been said. It was a year for the history books to be sure.
We are doing well. Matthew is still at PG&E and his workload has been intense, but there is light at the end of the tunnel (more hires means he might be able to actually take some vacation days at some point). Besides work, he keeps busy playing guitar and building shelves. We can never have too many shelves!
Kaylia had a rough year vision-wise, but after her September eye surgery, she is doing much better. She is still doing freelance copy and audio editing work.
Both Matthew and Kaylia have been recording podcasts (Pages and Popcorn discusses movies based on books while Ghosthropology is about ghost stories and folklore).
Ella… Well, Ella is doing amazing! She is thriving at distance learning and getting great grades as well as maintaining her chipper happy attitude. She has recently learned how to cook eggs and she is looking forward to the end of Covid so that we can take a few family trips. She is still reading nonstop and getting better every day with her guitar. She loves spending time with her books, her cat, her family, her legos, and her bubble sisters. Another big moment for Ella this year was the realization that she needs glasses! They are currently on order and we are looking forward to her headaches, blurry vision, and dizziness going away!
We are optimistic about the future, and we hope that you find ways to self-care and enjoy these strange times.
Happy Holidays from Matt, Kaylia, and Ella. aka The Metcalfe-Armstrong Family
Enjoy the song!
