Day 7 CHRISTmas: Garbage
Yesterday was garbage day for most of my neighborhood. Ours is today, because we have a different service. At any rate, there were lots of empty garbage bins decorating the street. I sent my kids around the block (and some of their little friends went with them) and they politely asked people if they could do service for them by returning their garbage bins to their side yards.
Some weren't home, so their garbage bins were left as they were (we didn't want to go through people's gates if they didn't give permission) but everyone that was home gave permission for the kids to do this service.
However, even with the fact that they said "service", most people tried to pay the kids. They earned upwards of three dollars (which I made them return to the people and stress that it was done in service).
