Samuel and Brayden Thompson were raking leaves in their Christmas hats on Nov. 24 to earn money.

Hard working boys prove hard work is worth it

The fact that fall precedes the holiday season seems somehow just right. It makes for a lot of cleanup with leaves that must be taken care of by somebody. We spotted two boys out raking leaves along California Avenue on Nov. 24.

Their Gramma Linda Wells negotiated with them to pay them $1.50 per hour to rake leaves to earn money to buy their parents something for Christmas.

Samuel Thompson 6 and Brayden Thompson 8 were very industrious, and dedicated workers.

In fact, when we stopped to take a photo of them, they were so focused on their work we had to ask them to take a break for a moment.

These boys understand the value of hard work, and what it means to earn money. To think that they want to work to buy something for their parents just makes it all that much sweeter.
