The boys have 7 days of school left before they are home all the time. I love having the boys home but I’m not looking forward to the challenges we are gonna face on several fronts.
Obviously, Gavin is likely to remain just as challenging as he is today, if not more.
One of the other issues is food. The boys will now be home for every single meal and snack of the day. Our budget was barely enough to sustain us with the boys in school 5 days a week. I’m not sure what we are going to do at this point but it’s gonna have to be pretty creative.
I’ve been trying to walk at least 3 miles a day and that’s a great deal more difficult with Gavin being home. It’s even more difficult with all the boys home.
One of my goals is to get a treadmill, so I can continue walking from home…
The final glaringly obvious challenge is what are we going to do with our time? We still haven’t been able to replace our car and our time with the one we’ve been borrowing is coming to an end.
Getting the boys outside to play is often more challenging as the Summer wares on because as it gets warmer outside, th3 idleness between the gangs that surround our neighborhood intensifies. I don’t even like mowing the lawn cause I don’t want to catch a stray bullet. In the last year or two we’ve had a few really close calls.
With all that said, the one thing I’m insanely grateful for is our central air. The AC makes life easier for the boys, especially with Elliott’s asthma.
I guess this about sums up my main concerns for this coming Summer.
What kinds of things are you expecting this Summer? What types of challenges does your family face? How do you plan on handling these challenges? Do you have any plans for your family?
