Around noon, we officially opened shop. I put out a message on Facebook, to see if we could get a few people to come out. It was an overcast day, so I was a little worried that the idea would be short lived. In the first five minutes, a woman stopped to buy lemonade. But after that, we just stood with our signs for the rest of the hour. Then, business began to pick up. A couple of my friends stopped by. One even brought the children she nannies, and they helped with the sign holding for a while. Then, three of the neighborhood kids came to help out as well. Before we knew it, it was 3:30 and we'd made...wait for it: $45! Isn't that crazy?

After doling out half the money to the Humane Society, we had the other half to give to our "workers for the day." We told them they can either take their money or join us for a bike ride for ice cream in the near future. All in all, it was an adventure in babysitting that I'm proud to say, was absolutely awesome!
