Child Labor Laws

I don't know what they are for Idaho, but this summer we taught Jaden to work and he is 6. He started out with going to neighbors and asking if he could recycle their pop cans. But after a few trips to the recyclers we found that would take a long time to earn a motorcycle. A real one.

So we tried mowing papa's lawn. After a few rows he got the clutch down and he could run Uncle Brandon's mower with ease. With mom cutting out the edges the rest is simple. She stands and directs the traffic to keep lines straight. Mid-summer we started mowing Debbie's lawn. He earned a Ripstick, Bucky Balls and a new BMX helmet!

I love the Camel Bak, it keeps Jaden hydrated while he works or plays.
