Keeping the Kids Off the Streets

I do what I can. ;)

So, we like to teach our kids to work. We haven't been super-consistent with it nor have we given them tons of opportunities to earn money. Dave says this: "Work; get paid. Don't work; don't get paid." and we like it.

Yesterday gave the best opportunity for a little work [or a lot. it took a little over an hour with a little help from their friends.] Those helicopters decided to land right in our newly mulched flower beds, so we paid them to pick them all out.

We paid them $1.00 each. I need to go find the other neighbor friend and give her earnings.

It was a lot of fun to sit and watch and direct.

UPDATE: Before & After

It has been three years this May that we'll have called this house our home. It was time to treat it more like home. Therefore, we decided to give it a bit of a face-lift.
