As homeschoolers, we really don't have to go out much. And since the Captain was deployed (one year ago today, to be precise), we really didn't go anywhere much during Rhoda's first few months. (In fact, that's my secret as to how we stayed so healthy during his deployment-- we didn't go anywhere.) But lately, we've gone to the YMCA and the library more often, with the result being that we all have colds. That is the price we pay for socialization I guess.
