My oldest daughter wanted to play her violin out by the road for money! I'm growing a little tired of the money scheming ideas, so I told her "nope." A short while later a phone call I'm on is interupted by her new idea. She came down to the kitchen with a large sign that read: "For Love and Joy" - she has decided to play for free, just for love and joy. The "free" idea I might have expected, but the sign was too cute to ignore. So I let her go outside with it and play her violin out by the road.
A little while later her little sister joined her, and with the combined effort they recieved a little more attention. One passerby, although I tried to refuse it, insisted on giving them each $1. I hugged my girls (for the love and joy aspect), then took them inside for some cold smoothies.
Pretty darn cute. This is the stuff Mom's live for, right?
