    God I love our kids! :-). And God I love our family!
    Thanks for sharing this. I wish I’d been there.
    (Oh, and don’t worry–the celery was fresh!)

    Haha funny story, so what’s the next thing you’re going to ask them? “So … are you going to make money, or should I?” 😉

    B10m: I have wonderful kids. I’m quite sure that if they could get a job to earn some money they’d happily tell me “now you don’t have to work as much”. And I’d quietly sneak off at night to work anyway so as to not disappoint them about their lemonade stand earnings 🙂

    Bravo, Wes! Looks like you had a fantastic meal!

    Encourage children every way you can. Our daughters are 23 and 21 now in college, and they love to cook, to read, and to learn.

    Make an adventure of yard cleaning leaves, or pruning a bush or a tree, or gardening. Take many pictures so they can see the fruits of their labors across the seasons.

    Our daughters both have said ‘we wish that you had taught us more about money’. Funny, but that was my lament to my parents as well!
