First job

Trey has been mowing our yard this year and we pay him (a little) so that he can earn some money. The house next door is vacant so we talked to the landlord and offered Trey's manual labor for a small fee to keep his yard looking nice or at least short and trimmed which is a huge improvement from years past...it's a win win, Trey earns money and we have control of keeping the place looking decent! He is doing a great job and working hard...

We had to go get some grass shears since there is no power in the house and we don't have an extension cord long enough to use our trimmer (plus it was a good excuse to get some since i have wanted some anyway). Raegan thinks she has a new job...

her words before this were "don't worry mommy i won't cut my swimsuit or my skirt!" I was thinking more along the lines of fingers and toes, but as long as you don't cut your clothing...

I remember using those clippers all along our back yard fences. Eek!

Evan is mowing this summer all the time, too. It is nice. He mows our neighbors once in awhile, too. Micah has no interest in mowing. :)

Good Job Trey! Keep up the good work. Raegan will be a good helper to you when she gets a little bigger:)
