Paige received her first pay check last week for $19.76. You would have thought she won the lottery! That is a lot of money when you are only 8. I thought she would want to cash it for her trip to the American Girl Store but she said no I'm saving it all. We'll see if she does not ask for a loan for $20 while in the midst of her shopping spree! I am pretty proud of her employment initiative. She has rolled and bagged all 121 newpapers each week without complaint. She doesn't mind having help delivering but enjoys having all the mailboxes to herself when it is just the two of us. Best of all she is going to learn so many important skills and money managment.
Good work Paigee! Daddy and I are very proud of you.

That's great, Paige! U.B. here was 12 or 13 when I first started delivering papers. It started out at something like 35 a day, went up to over 120 a day, then down to 55. Lot of work back then! But, I made a little bit of money, and we all have to start somewhere!

Congratulations to you for what you are doing!
