I told my sister that I would take care of her boys while she is at school this summer. That means I'll have them from 8ish in the morning until 2ish in the afternoon monday thru friday. I know too that sometimes, at least once a week, they'll stay for dinner and also stay the night.
I have a mixture of feelings going on in my brain. I'm happy to provide a safe and consistent environment for them but I'm scared because of the committment to provide for two more children. I think logically and logistically it will be fine but emotionally I know it will be a challenge for me.
Some things I thought we'd do are COSI, the Zoo and go to a pool I recently got a membership for. Does anyone have any other ideas? We do crafts, gardening and bake sometimes, the boys can help with those things but what else?
I cannot believe it's almost summer...crazy!
I pick up the boys today so they can hangout with us and have dinner with us. I hope they can over time see our house as a place to chill out or to relax, I want to provide that for them.
