Kid Adventures

This has been a crazy week, and I may have 100 blog ideas a week, but didn't have time to write them. This weekend, I've had a bit of time to relax, so I'm back to share a story with you.
My 20-year-old is home from college in Florida. He started out working a restaurant job and now has switched to a landscaping job to make money this summer. He comes home tired and dirty, but he doesn't feel the need to lift weights as often.
The other evening, Spence had an opportunity to make some extra money doing something much less physical. He got to be a model in a photo shoot. That would not usually be something that he wanted to do, but the photo shoot was in the new locker room of the Ohio State football team. Spencer is a big fan of OSU football, so he was anxious to walk where some of his favorite football players practice.
Apparently, the university built a new practice facility. Yes, the amount of money spent on college sports is ridiculous.
Spencer took only two pictures on his phone and shared them with me.
He posed in front of the locker of OSU player Noah Spence. Obviously, he posed there because his name is Spencer.
The locker room leads to an indoor practice field, so Spencer took a shot of that too.
The boys got to pose in the hot tub too. They were in the pictures posing as football players for the architects who designed the new facility. So their pictures won't be in magazines, but used to promote the architectural firm.
Spencer made $40 and that wasn't bad for an evening of posing for pictures rather than manhandling mulch and weed whacking.

Well said Sally. I would do it go free; though no one is asking.
