My little entrepreneur

Today was the second day of our family garage sale and boy what a day! My husband has such a knack for talking to complete strangers that he was awarded the job of overseeing today's event. Within the first two hours he had succeeded in surpassing the entire amount that was made on Friday. It's amazing to see things that we no longer wanted were quite popular with those who purchased our "treasures".

Early that morning, my oldest son was begging us to allow him to put together a lemonade stand. He even said to me that with the amount of people that were coming to our house, he was sure that they would be thirsty. So, we proceeded to put together his make shift stand and he set up shop at the end of our driveway. He, like his dad, is a natural at talking to people and telling them all about himself and what he was selling. It was slow going for the first hour but in the end my little entrepreneur made $7.75 (not bad for selling it at a $.25 a glass). He's so proud of how many "customers" that he had and quickly took all of his money and put it into his dinosaur bank.

Even though it's just a lemonade stand, this is my little boy growing up and gaining independence...where does the time go?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
