Melinda Nordhoff, 13, of Shoals, pushes her nephew, Jaxson Humphrey, 4, of Jasper, while Luna the dog chases them outside Jaxson's home on Monday. Melinda, a student at Dubois Middle School, only has e-learning days Tuesday through Thursday, so she often spends her Mondays and Fridays with playing with her nephew. Melinda said she loves playing with him because "he's kinda crazy."
