Making the best of it

Ashleigh Hidalgo of Redart took time out from her new job of being a homeschool mom/teacher to take a walk on Haven Beach on Friday and gather sea glass for an aunt who lives in Chesterfield. She said her oldest son, a Mathews High School senior, takes care of his own schoolwork, and her youngest isn’t in school yet. But her younger son, a Thomas Hunter Middle School student, presents more of a challenge. With no internet at home, she has to drive him to hot spots to complete his work. “You definitely need your breaks,” she said. While the situation has been challenging, said Hidalgo, “having the kids home has been a blessing.” The hardest part for them is not being able to see their friends, she said, “but it’s the best for everybody, so we make the best of it.”
