Flashback Friday! Child Labor Laws!


There is a large age difference between my two younger siblings and us older three "Holler" girls well we were fast learners at the fact that the younger kids were much cuter and got much more attention for it. Well who would we have been as older sisters if we didn't encourage their cuteness and allow them to use it to it's fullest potential?!? One afternoon Alyssa and I decided to have a lemonade stand in front of the house since we lived on a somewhat busy street, we knew that just us two might not get the business we sought, so add the little children with picket signs reading "Lemonade" and you have yourself a goldmine! Now don't think we made them do it for free, we paid them a whole 50 cents!! That's totally fair! The best part was that when the other neighborhood kids saw Jack and Em having such a great time they decided they wanted to join in!! Good thing none of them were aware of the child labor laws!! There has to be some upside to being the older ones!!

That is such a funny picture and story. It's kind of nice being the older one because then the little ones always seem to do what you say. I remember we made flavored ice cubes once and tried to sell them as "homemade popcicles". I think we ended up eating them all instead of selling any.

Hmm, could those little white haired kids be the Hammons?? That's funny! I don't know if I have ever done a lemonade stand. :-)
