Okay...the sun was very bright this morning and Tony had a hard time smiling for the camera...but I just wanted to get a few pictures of him today because this is Tony's first day at his first job! What an exciting day! He got a part time job down at our neighborhood Vons Pavillions. He rides his bike to and from work and it takes him about 4 minutes to get there. Today he works from 9:30am to 2:30pm. Because he is homeschooled, he is available at these hours, which the store really likes. Most kids his age aren't available until after 3pm. He will only work 20 hours or less a week, but this money will go in the bank and be used towards car insurance. Tony wants to start driving, but that can't happen until he can pay for his own insurance!!
He looks so handsome in his uniform.
His name tag!!
Avery and Aislynn take a peek at him through the door :) Tony's job is to bag the groceries, collect the carts, and assist the customers to their cars and in the store. He will do great at this job because he's so personable and friendly. On Sundays he will get paid doulbe time, and if he works a holiday he will get paid triple time. I'm excited that he has this grown-up responsibility. I know it will be good for him as he works towards his independence. He'll be 18 before we know it!
