Such a deal... A few days ago, my neighbor children put up a lemonade stand and sold pink lemonade for 25¢ a glass! They even had a cash register! It was so charming and their enthusiasm was precious. Don't you think lemonade stand just screams SUMMER! Reminded me that we were all young once, and earning our first few dollars was an exciting adventure. So, I bought two glasses/double servings full of pink lemonade - I did have to run home to get my own glasses...) Shortly after, one of our neighbors donated some plastic cups. I think I was the girl's first customer; about an hour later they were already at $9!
My earliest memory earning money during the summertime was when I was 15 years old. I taught swimming lessons in our backyard pool. My Dad gave lessons and I took on a few students myself. My youngest was a 4 year old named Danny, and by the time his lessons were finished, he was able to swim 'american crawl' the length of our pool. I was so proud of him, and myself..:)
Anyone else have a favorite summer childhood memory of earning money that you'd like to share?
