This is the year

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham

My husband and I decided this was finally the year I was going to stay home for the summer. I’ve been a teacher for the better part of a decade but with the economy the way it was, it made sense for me to get a summer job during the summers to bring in a little extra cash. Our kids are at that age, though, where we’d have to hire a babysitter to watch them anyway which would eat up any extra money I was making, so it just made sense for me to stay home and watch them while they were out of school. I convinced my husband to look at with me since I’d be home so often by myself and he thought it was a great idea. We talked to the kids about what was going to be expected of them and laid out house rules for the summer that they’ll be expected to follow. I’m looking forward to some time off and some play time with the kids!
