My Little Beggers

The other day Rachel and Annie begged me to play out front. I usually don't let them without me for fear of kidnapping or a ball running in the street etc. They assured me they would stay in the driveway so I gave in and let them. I was busy in the kitchen and noticed that they kept coming in and out of the house. Both the girls had mismatched clothes on and had messed up their hair. They grabbed a sharpie marker and were in the garage disassembling a box and writing on it. That's when I knew they were up to something and this is what I found. My sweet little girls thought it would be a good idea to hold a sign and pretend they were poor so they could earn a buck. You see this kind of thing at different intersections in Austin quite a bit so I'm sure that's where they came up with this genius idea. Rachel told me that she wrote it really messy and spelled would wrong so they would think they were uneducated. After I lectured them for being disobedient and breaking the rules I went in the other room and laughed. Kids do the darnedest things.

Nice to see you back in the blogger world. I was wondering where you disappeared (I know I am guilty too).

What a couple of little entrepreneur's! Now, if you can just channel that creativity into other worthwhile projects, (or not) they could both have great careers in business or politics! hehe

That is great, a bit scary, but great. I remember all the guys selling roses at every street corner. Keep an eye on those 2, they might cause you some trouble, they seem to see EVERYTHING.
