CHICAGO – For many parents around the country, spending quality time with children has just increased quite a bit.
With many schools closed, many mothers and fathers have taken on the role of watching their kids full time while working from home. Others are helping to educate their children at home as well to make sure they’re still learning during the time away from home.
Chicago Fire FC defender Johan Kappelhof is one of those doing so in a creative way during Chicago’s “Shelter-in-Place” order.
In a video tweeted out on the Chicago Fire FC’s Twitter account, Kappelhof is playing the “ABCs” on a guitar near the windowsill with his children joining him for the song.
He, like the rest of the club, are trying to pass the time during the Major League Soccer season suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The league’s moratorium, as of now, runs through April 3rd.
Meanwhile, his teammate, Djordje Mihailovic, is creating quite a following for himself while isolated at his home.
One of the videos already has one million views, as Mihailovic has done everything from aiming a small soccer ball through a foam roller to a pretending to be lining up for a game.
Either way, he’s finding a way to keep himself occupied pretty well while unable to train.
