For the first time ever, the older 3 kids all have jobs at the same time! Yay! Jill is at Target, Ty at WalMart, and Ryan at the Megaplex. Jill gets about 28 hrs a week, Ty is scheduled for more than 40, and Ryan gets roughly 25. Transportation has been a bit of a challenge, but has worked out so far. Everyone's schedules are different every week, but we've also managed to have Grace taken care of between the 5 of us.
The job perks are also fantastic: Ry gets free movies, Ty gets quite the discount, Jill...well, Target is not so perk-y. But we're very grateful for jobs, the means to pay for college, meeting new friends, and being productive. It's shaping up to be a fantastic summer!
The Brain: Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Pinky: I think so Brain, but burlap chafes me so.
Quote of the Day
"Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain." -Gordon B. Hinckley
