Three Boys and Rakes

I had a brainstorm. I was looking at all the pits from last year under the trees in the peach orchard and I thought, "What I need is some boys with rakes! They are old enough to learn how to work and feel they accomplished something." So I went to Lowe's and bought three little rakes and the next time they came over I offered them the job. They would get 1 candy of choice per tree raked. If they completed one whole row they could choose a new DVD movie, out to lunch with Grandma to the place of their choosing, or a toy of their choice.
Nathan raked 5 trees.
Jared raked 2 trees.
Spencer said," No way!" but wanted to play with the rake.

I would've raked rows and rows for a new movie and a lunch date. Call me.
