Social Distance Lunch Date

If this was a normal spring break, Tad and Danny would have been out once to do something fun.  When the schedules align around therapy during school vacations, Danny’s mom and I usually arrange to have them do something fun.  They’ve done movies together, lunch, miniature golf, and bowling in years past.

Well, this year, almost all of those options were shut down.  I’ve had “quarancoffee” dates with Danny’s mom – and with Friend –  so I invited Danny and his mom to a social distancing lunch at one of Tad’s favorite places – Dick’s Drive In, which is still open.

Burgers, milkshakes, friends in cars parked next to each other.  In this moment in time, this was the best we could do for the boys.

Even though Danny is now in high school, the boys have seen each other weekly over Zoom meetings with their Young Life group, which they enjoy.  But there is nothing like having lunch, face-to-face.
