When Mom Buys You Lemonade ...

... SELL IT!

Aaron had a few lemonade stands this summer.
He saw one on a show and asked if he could have one.

The first one started out with Lily and Zach there to help.

 
I think this was the first customer.

 
Then Zach left and it was down to Lily and Aaron.


Even the mailman stopped to purchase.

 
And a sweet old couple.

 

 
Then Lily had to leave and it was just lonely little Aaron to finish it out.

 He's so cute.

Aaron wanted to have another one soon after, so he invited Stella to join him for that one.

 
Had to move out of the shade towards the corner to be seen better.


What does a six year old want to do with money he makes from a lemonade stand?
He wants to go to Boondocks!

At the end of summer, Aaron begged to have one more lemonade stand, so I told him he could.
He wanted to have one of his cousins come and help again, but they couldn't, so he was out there on his own. He asked me to sit out there with him, but when I told him that people would not stop for a grown up selling lemonade, he was okay with me watching from the bench on the front porch. :)

I love my cute little entrepreneur.
He was a great saleman and he and his cousins made some great money because of their cuteness and the kindness of others.

It was great to be able to teach him the principle of paying tithing after he made some of his own money. I hope he sees the blessings that will come throughout his life from paying his tithing to the Lord. The Lord gives us so much and does not ask for much in return.
We are so blessed.

our kids have never done a lemonade stand - no where to do one. We talked about doing one on our city-wide yard sale day. Maybe next spring.
Aaron almost looks too old to be selling lemonade because he is so tall. :)

Cooper is the king of the lemonade stand... he loves having one! It helps that we live on one of the busiest roads in town. :) Aaron is so cute!!
