The art of selling.

Wesley is always asking us how he can make some money. So I finally caved over Spring Break last week and let the boys sell bottled water. No more sugary lemonade these days! A sign of the times, I guess. I opted to help them set up shop at the entrance to the Downtown YMCA. Figured people coming and going from their workouts would have a higher propensity to buy. Besides, we live on a one way street that gets next to no traffic. The boys agreed to give .25¢ from every bottle to help Haiti. I told them it's like going fishing. You have to be patient and wait for your customers and then be ready to make the sale when they (finally) come along. They lasted about an hour and a half. A grand total of  $7.50 was raised for the Red Cross.
