Yesterday was such a gorgeous day. We got home from preschool, and after lunch, TJ decided he wanted to go outside and play. Of course, I was working away at the computer. He kept coming in and out of the house, taking things out. When I finally looked up to see what he was doing, I discovered that he had made a pitcher of lemonade, all by himself, found some paper cups, and had set up his own little lemonade stand outside.
So, I went out to see. He pulled a cooler from the garage to use as a table. He pulled an old car seat out to sit on, and he made himself a little sign on which he drew a pitcher of pink lemonade. And he sat out there all day. For probably 4 hours. I finally had to make him clean up everything around 5:00 and come inside.
But, he brought in his little cup of money and showed me that he'd made $4. Four dollars! That was charging a quarter per cup. I was so impressed with my little entrepreneur, and his initiative.
That kid will go places. I have no doubt.
