The family was able to fill their summer with chess games, hikes, pizza nights and even jump rope.

"Being an elected official and a mom in a pandemic, as well as a working career mom, has been interesting to say the least. It has taken me to a level of multi-tasking I didn't know existed," Cooper said.

Heather is also giving a shoutout to her husband Joshua, who has taken on the role of chef, teacher and supporter during this time.
