Sophie is our little entrepreneur. At the first of the summer, out of the blue she told me that she was having a yard sale. I was a bit hesitant since it was already Saturday morning and we hadn't planned anything. But then she told me "Mom, I am having a yard sale today no matter what" She wasn't being snotty about it, just matter of fact. So I told her to go ahead and do it. The next thing I know, her and Sam were in her room finding anything and everything that they could to sale. She had a marker and some paper and tape and was marking the prices on the things (or junk) that they wanted to sale. They took a blanket out on the grass and set everything out on it. So this is a picture of her and Sam out on our front lawn having a yard sale. Grandma Joan heard about it and buzzed right over. She bought a stuffed animal for $3 and a few of Sophies friends bought a few things so I thing she ended up making about five dollars. Pretty good for a 6 year old.
This is another one of Sophie's money makers. She wanted to set up a juice stand and sell juice. She said to me.."Mom could I sell each cup of juice for $4...I really want to make some money." I thought that this was so cute, but had to explain to her that if she sold a cup of juice for $4 no one would buy it. I told her to try 10 cents a cup and she actually sold a few dollars worth. I love this little girl! She is so opposite from me in so many ways which I am thankful for....she is very determined and a go getter, if she sets her mind to something she is going to get it done.
This is the little sign that she made to sell her apple juice. (Notice the spelling, too cute!)
