Summer night + Meatball Stand = I'm not quite sure

Carter is obsessed about making money. He is constantly looking for ways to make more money. Well, he may have come up with his most genius idea yet. He came up to Brodi and told her that he was going to set up a meatball stand. Yes, our 7-year old decided that instead of selling silly things like lemonade on a hot summer night, he would sell tasty meatballs.

Brodi asked him how much he was going to sell the meatballs for and he told her, 2 for $5. Brodi smartly explained that may be a little much and he adjusted that to 3 for $1. Or as he would say, '6 for $2. If someone walked by his meatball stand, he would hold up his notepad and say 'May I take your order please?' Every new person that came around the corner, Carter would say to Brodi, 'Looks like another customer is coming up.'

Shockingly enough, his meatball stand did not make him hundreds of dollars but thanks to nice family and neighbors, he was able to bring home a little cash. At the end of the selling frenzy, he let us know that tomorrow that he is going to sell steaks.

Anne--yes, yes he does.

LT--yeah, and its a little scary to see what he will do in future. Maybe he will sell shrimp next time.

Amy--he loves you too...in fact, you are one of his absolute best friends as he reminds us.

Dorien--we will let you know, that would make his day.

On another note--he thinks he will have, as he puts it, 'a great career in meatball sales.'
