Laura Fusco, of Littleton, said her family is proud to be able to take care of their community by staying home and wearing their masks when they take walks in the neighborhood.
"This is a great opportunity to teach kids about caring for our community and teaching and resiliency and creativity," Laura Fusco said. "We are blessed to be able to stay home. I believe we will come out of this stronger!"
The family includes Laura and Justin Fusco and their children Jules, 8, and Holden, 7. The Fuscos have lived in Littleton for 10 years, and mom and the kids are Colorado natives.
Although the kids are enrolled in first and third grades at Bradford K8, they now attend "Quarantine School," their mom said.
The Fuscos bought their masks from one of their neighbors, who made more than 100 masks with the help of her three school-aged kids. Laura Fusco said she bought them to support the supplies and effort of her neighbor, and to show goodwill.
To stay occupied during the stay-at-home period, the family hangs out in the backyard, playing Pie Face, throwing water balloons, catching bugs, grilling, playing catch, drawing with chalk and being grateful for the nice weather.
