Earning It

Jackson is a busy boy. He is trying to figure out how to juggle school with a job that is giving him plenty of hours! He is working at Cold Stone in Layton. I think he loves it. I am particularly proud because my first job was at TCBY! I worked there for over four years and I loved it! Some of my greatest memories are from long night serving up frozen yogurt. Some of my best friends worked there and it was a great four years!

Jackson gets to serve up some seriously delicious ice cream AND he gets to sing crazy songs when they are given tips. A lot of the people he works with go to different schools, so he is making friends from all over, too.
Saturday, after Josh picked him up from work, they came into Kohls to see what I wanted for dinner. There was a pair of pants on clearance that Jackson REALLY wanted. When it came time for them to leave, he had put the pants back and only had a wallet. Josh asked him if he no longer wanted the pants. Jackson said, "Yeah I want the pants but I NEED a wallet." Josh and I looked at each other and smiled. It's funny how our priorities change when it's our own money that we are spending! Jackson just rolled his eyes, paid for his wallet and they left.

Earlier in the week, though, I had asked Jackson to take Colton to two different houses in our neighborhood to drop off thank-you notes. Colton came home, but Jackson didn't. Naughty! He had gone to Walmart to get Josh and I a little thank-you gift for all we do. Dad got a 2 liter of Mountain Dew and some Reeses Pieces. Mom got a 2 liter of Diet Coke with some Hersheys drops. :)
