First Lemonade Stand

Yesterday Cooper had his first lemonade stand. He was so excited and has been asking to do this for a few weeks now, after he saw some of his friends having one down the street. He was such a little entrepreneur! He and Daddy mixed the lemonade in a big jug, got ice and cups, and even made signs! Too cute:)

Every car that passed by, he would hold up his sign and yell, "Lemonade for sale!!!!" If the car passed by, he would share his disappointment with an, "Uggggg!!!"

It was so cute when people would ask how much he was charging, he would often reply with a, "$25." He doesn't quite understand the difference between dollars and cents yet :) He was most excited when people would dig out lots of pennys in change, because to Coop that was A LOT of money. All in all, the little business man made $14! Can you believe it?

It was such a great moment to talk about that toy he's been wanting at Target and how he can save his money to go buy it. It was also a great moment to share with him how we give to God first. It's pretty precious to see his eagerness to give his money to the Lord. What a precious little boy we have :)


  1. Jen, that was the cutest post. A wonderful life lesson at the same time of making sweet, fun memories. I love the last picture of Coop holding the sign and squinting. Absolutely precious! Love you guys!

  2. Hi Jen so Chris made me read your blog a couple months back (this is Rebecca) and I just could not help but commenting today! Cooper is just so darn cute with his stand! Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. Oh my gosh, so cute. I would totally have stopped to buy lemonade. :) Praying for you!

  4. This is @MarieNordhues on Twitter. Sorry to be a stranger commenting on this but I came across your website because your husband just tweeted about having to get you a new engine for your 8th anniversary and I work for AAA in PR :).

    This is absolutely one of the sweetest things I have ever read online. You just made my day Jen and I wish you every blessing on your upcoming new addition. God bless you, Jerrod, and adorable Cooper!
