My spouse & I are lucky to have our children. The oldest two are both guys & the youngest child is a teenaged girl. Both of our guys played athletic activities in school & excelled in math & geography both. One of them was held back during kindergarten, so they ended up in the same grade for the entire time they were students. I thought this would cause problems, but I feel it actually helped our sons to forge a strong & healthy friendship. Our child is 3 years younger than our middle child. She was the final one to graduate from school, however now the two of us have several children in university & it takes a big toll on our billfolds. None of the teenagers live at home, & this big, giant house is often very empty. My spouse & I were spending a ton of cash to heat & cool down the place. The people I was with and I wanted to save cash, however the two of us did not want to downsize into a smaller house. The people I was with and I decided to hire & HVAC business to install some zone control heating & cooling. All of the bedrooms upstairs are in a single zone. The people I was with and I can turn off all of the heat & cool air by adjusting the climate control equipment for that zone. Since our spouse & I sleep downstairs & spend all of our time up there, the two of us save a lot of cash by only heating & cooling the areas where the two of us tend to work, sleep, & eat. When Sarah finishes her last year of university, our spouse & I will actually downsize from this large house & into a small condo. The people I was with and I are just waiting for all of the kiddos to finish with their university job.
