My Little Entrepreneurs

Well, I've told you about the "laking" for golf balls. The boys began to sell the golf balls this week. It has been hysterical. Monday morning, Braden and our neighbor got up early and went out to sell. They only sold a couple of $5 cartons. Everyone would pass and say they were hoping they were selling lemonade. Well, after a number of those comments, Braden was having none of that. He talked me into going to the store and buying what they need to sell lemonade. Since then, they are raking in the money! I don't know if the lemonade is the trick but they are selling both golf balls and lemonade like crazy. Bryce and Cade help a little bit, but Braden makes me wake him up early so he won't miss any golfers! He is so much like his dad I can hardly stand it.



My friend came to town with her 3 kids, and her little girl jumped right in there with Braden. They sat out there the whole day in the heat selling lemonade. I think between the golf balls and the lemonade, they have brought in about $400 so far!! Can you believe that? I let him pocket whatever lemonade money he makes when he's out there, but they will have to split the golf ball money because that has been a lot of work getting to this point.



Here are a few pictures of them this week:
Braden and Evan - Monday morning

Wednesday morning - armed with lemonade


Caitlin and Braden - it was hot! (which is why they sold so much lemonade)
Tonight, I was in the front flowerbeds while there were golfers on the green. Braden had gone to a friend's house to spend the night so he wasn't out there. One of the men asked where his lemonade guy was. He said he had bought 2 cups of lemonade and 3 dozen golf balls. He was very complimentary of the boys and, of course, I was beaming. Truth is, if Braden had known he would miss so many golfers he probably would have stayed home!
