Now that everyone is older in the house, it seems like a good idea for the kids to work some during the summer. It teaches responsibility, gives them the opportunity to make and save some money (real money, which they don't see much these days in the land of plastic transactions), and lets them meet other people in their community. We've decided as a family to set ourselves up for hire and have a list of jobs we will do for people and our rates:
- Lawn mowing - $15- $20 per yard (depending on size)
- Hand weeding - depends on area to be tidied and amount of weeds
- Babysitting - $7-10 depending on age and number of children
- Dog walking - $5 for a 15 minute walk, $10 for 30 minutes (additional dogs $2.50 each)
Meet the Crew:
Erin is a rising seventh grader at CW Stanford and has an excellent rapport with both children and animals. Most of her experience with children is ages two and up. She likes reading to children, playing with them, and can make a nice batch of playdough or slime.
Erin is also a seasoned dog walker. She walks dogs on a regular basis around our neighborhood and knows how to clean up after them, keep a respectable distance from other dogs, and give them a fresh bowl of water when they get home.
Morgan and Bowen are rising ninth graders at Orange High School and are ready to mow some lawns! They are used to mowing rocky Hillsborough lawns and around garden and landscaped areas. Their favorite thing to do is play lacrosse, but since the season is over for now, they're willing to put some of their energy to other tasks.
I am the one that drives people where they need to be or provide answers to any questions.
Thanks for checking us out!
