40 of 365

You know, I had another photo I had taken and was going to use today, but my plans had to change. My youngest child got her first job today at Academy Sports! To say she is excited would be an understatement. She is beyond excited! It's a brand new store and is still under construction. She has her first orientation this Friday and another one later in the month. The store is slated to open the first part of March.

Academy hires a lot of students and they seem to be concerned about them. The gentleman that hired Emily scheduled her to work 5:00pm to closing and then asked her how her parents would feel about her working until closing four weekdays. She told him we would be okay with it as long as her grades didn't start to suffer. He said that she was to come to him immediately if she had any problems with work interfering with school and they would be more than happy to work with her and adjust her schedule. I'm a little concerned, especially since she'll be taking dual credit courses next year, But...she's a good student and I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and see how it goes.

Now I'm off to go burst her bubble and tell her she can't use work as an excuse to get out of cleaning her room!

Until tomorrow...


  1. Woohoo!!! Congrats to her on her first job! That is way cool!

    The salmon patties were delicious btw!! LOL!!

  2. Too funny. But it sounds like you have a very responsible daughter and that's great!

  3. What a great way to document her first job! Sounds like a wonderful place to work, too, and glad they are caring about her. Hope it goes really well. It probably will, she sounds like a wonderful student and daughter!

    LOL on the clean the room part!
