An old man lived in a side street of a small town. Every day after supper, some children would play football in the street. The children were too _1_ for the old man to have a good rest.
One evening, the old man told the children that he would give them 25 cents each week _2_ them play football in the street at night. He said, “I am so glad when you play football happily.” This was his _3_ . The boys were _4_ , for they could_ 5_ believe that they could _6_ to do something they enjoyed.
At the end _7_ two weeks, the boys came in the old man’s house, and went away each time happily with _8_ 25 cents. The third week when they came back, however, the old man said he had nearly run out of his money and _9_ them away with 15 cents. The fourth week, the old man said he was ill and he had spent almost all his money on medicine. He gave the boys only 10 cents. The boys were very _10_ , but there was not much for them to do about it.
At the end of the fifth week, the boys came back again only to get 5 cents. After that, the children never played football in the street again.

It sounds like homework to me, too.
Read the rules.
I agree, it looks like homework and I think it can be a fun exercise for the poster to just put what they feel naturally fits. That is the fun part of learning English. Do not be afraid to experiement with words and their meanings.
My answer for the 1st part is as following（I'm really not sure wheather they are right）：
1. when 2.nobody 3.just 4.rained 5.rain 6.return 7.balance
8.But 9. 10.makes
The 9th blank, I really don't know which word is proper.
