Ava the entrepreneur

Last weekend, under the watchful eyes of Aunt Katie and Uncle Tom, Ava opened a lemonade stand at the end of our driveway. She netted a respectable $27, but perhaps more notably, she secured a catering opportunity with a local running group.

I wasn’t on hand for the booking, so I was surprised to learn Thursday evening’s engagement would bring about 40 runners from the Hash House Harriers, a local chapter of the international running club, to our driveway for glasses of lemonade. (My enthusiasm was slightly damped when I learned the run was billed as a “trip through the suburbs,” warning participants not to return with mortgage and 2.3 children. THEY COULD BE SO LUCKY.)

Ava was really in her element, though. Along with Tom and Livie, she happily served up lemonade to the group, securing a $30 payday, $8 in tips and a growing thirst for entrepreneurship.

    Wow! I sure hope the local government does not hear about this, and come calling for taxes! This is really amazing!
