Haley made her first dollar today playing violin for the ladies at the thriftstore near the boy's music lessons. Haley and Daddy go in there every week to waste time while the boys have their lessons and they always ask Haley to play for them.
After she played for the guys in the music store (they ask her to do mini concerts all the time), they told Ritch he needs to set her up with her violin case open on the boardwalk somewhere and let her play. I had already nixed that idea when Ritch came up with it but they aren't helping me on that one. Somehow the idea of exploiting my daughter does not sit well with me. Ritch says it would help pay for all the lessons and new violins she will need.
