Riding along today we saw this!
So of course we had to turn around and go back.
An enterprising young boy - about 11 years old - was standing on that stool - waving at people and selling flowers to earn money for a WII. If you click the photo you see his hands sticking out of the cardboard at the sides and a hole for his eyes in the top.
I told him if he'd let me take a picture I'd buy some flowers - so he climbed back up on the stool and posed for me - and I bought these.
His price was ten stems of sweet peas for 1.00 - so I picked out a nice bouquet and Don handed him 5.00 - at the same time I handed him 5.00. He was puzzled - he said, oh no - they are ten stems for ONE dollar. We told him that we loved his sign and his enthusiasm and his hard work, and he could keep the change. He was excited and said that was more than he usually makes in one afternoon standing on his stool.
My whole house smells of the sweet smell of Sweet Peas - and a hard working little boy is a lot closer to getting his WII.
