Oldest got a job!

Our oldest got a job! She is working for a farmer friend and getting more than minimum wage, so that is pretty good for a 17-year-old! She worked three hours today and hubby just went to get her. It will be interesting to see how she did and how she liked it.

I know dd came to me this morning and said it was going to be nice working for Farmer S because she text dd telling her what to bring, what to where and what they would be doing today! :) Farmer S also works in admin and is a training facilitator by profession so it makes sense she would be organized and good communicating. I've worked with her before and it was a pleasure to work with her. I'm thankful she is giving dd this chance/opportunity.

Dd still wants to get a job in a fast food joint though....which I'll never understand. I worked fast food and did not like it but dd does have a different personality than I do so maybe she would actually like it. I just think it will be hard on her back standing all day, not that farming won't be but at least with farming you can sit down, have breaks, etc.

Letting go and letting her make her own decisions is kind of tough sometimes.
