Not-So-Cheap Labor

Last week's storm left our yard a mess.  So, I told Olivia and McIver they could earn some extra allowance money by helping to pick up pinecones in the yard.  I thought 5 cents per pinecone seemed reasonable.  Not so!  McIver picked up 140 pinecones and Olivia (using the wheelbarrow!) collected a whopping 236.  For those of you playing at home, that amounts to $18.80 ($7 to McIver and $11.80 to Olivia).  Next time, I'll lower the rate!
