Rite of passage

Ava has been pleading with me for months to have a lemonade stand–literally, she started asking about it when there was still snow on the ground. She even worked hard at school to figure out the mechanics of making change. (I suggested she charge 32 cents a cup to keep things interesting.)

By Memorial Day weekend, she seemed ready to take on the task, and so we helped her set up a stand at Mom’s garage sale. She made a cool $3.25 (including tips) for her efforts.

Look for Girl Scout cookie or mutual fund sales next.

    She was a very good salesperson, highly professional! Everyone seemed to enjoy her lemonade — especially the guy who gave her the tip!

  2. That is too cute! She should also offer classes on composting!
