Going thru my 10 year old sons homework this morning and a flyer pops out. $5 for spring clean ups!!!

How can I compete with my own family at these prices??? According to my wife, he did this in the fall (in fact I remember picking him up from a house he was cleaning).

Oh well, I figure I can ground him during peak season.

Hire him as a sub. Ask him to help pay the bills now that he is earning all that money.

Hahaha, that's pretty funny. I remember when I was doing lawn maintenance in high school under my own business name and my dad was doing landscaping/hardscaping under his own business name. Everyone in town thought we were competing against each other. LOL.

last fall, he was paid 2 american bills and 3 loonies. The family asked for 50 cents back for the exchange. LOL. The owner of the house was a truck driver and sat in his rig until I made change LOL.

Please let me know what his expenses for a passport and airfare is to Dallas, TX. I will provide room and board at my expense and pay him twice as much as he is getting now. At age 18 I do send him back to you for his college education.
