12 year old entrepreneur

I have to say I have a new found respect for my daughter.
This last week she let me know that her school was going to be having an event and she would need $10.00 to be able to participate so I figured okay I'll have to give her the money this Monday so that she would be able to buy her ticket, not a big deal right since schools always seem to be having a function that requires students to pay their way in.
Well she decided that she would not ask me or my husband for the money instead she would figure out a way to raise it herself. She had found out my sister in law had been having yard sales so she asked me for items that we no longer use and put her own yard sale up on Saturday.
She was up until 12am Friday making her posters and woke up at 6am to put them out and organize her little yard sale needless to say without my help my baby made $90.00. I was so proud of her and to top it off she tried to give me $50.00 of her money (that I didn't take ) but just her offering me it almost made me cry I could not be more proud of the wonderful human being that I am raising.
