From the time I can remember, my brothers and sisters and I had a paper route for the Woodburn Independent. We were forced to roll those dirty papers every Tuesday afternoon until we starting getting into school sports and having games. Then it would be passed down to the younger siblings. When my mom finally quit doing it, we'd had the same route for 19 years! The newspaper ran a front page story (yeah, Woodburn's a pretty happenin' place!) and gave my parents a free lifetime subscription to the paper. The money we earned went into our savings accounts for college.

That is awesome. I think that is great that your family used that to teach you guys the value of work and savings! I need to work on something with my kids!!!
