Who knew Aidan would be quite the salesman? I guess new Legos were at stake. It doesn't hurt that his freckles are adorable and he NEVER GAVE UP. This picture sums up his tenacity for the sale. He brought people in like a carnival barker.
His first customer got about 1/4" of lemonade. That really cracked the guy up and he refused any more. 50 plus glasses later (seriously), we were out of cups and lemonade so we called it quits. At 25 cents a glass, the profit wasn't huge but his lesson was learned. New Legos were purchased today along with a small gift for a boy at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (a tradition we started when he started using his money to buy his own toys).
We fared as well at our yard sale. We sold some tough things (Aidan's crib and baby toys, my old sewing machine). But it feels good to clear up some space and the extra money will really help.
I'd like to throw out a big thanks to all the people that kindly stopped by to buy a glass of lemonade. They didn't have to do it and some bought more than one glass and some gave tips. It made a little boy's day.
