The past 2 weeks have been incredibly rainy. Today the rain broke, the sun came out and Nora asked, "mom, I really want to do a lemonade stand!" Last summer I remember her bringing this up with me, but at that time she seemed a bit too young. Now, she is at the right age. We went to Safeway and bought lemonade and she made her sign. Nora sat at her table for 20 or 30 minutes before the first car drove down the road. Stuey and I stayed inside the house and made chocolate chip cookies to sell at the stand as well.
Lemonade was 25 cents a glass and chocolate chip cookies were 25 cents a cookie. (Ella thought we should be charging more for the cookies as she said they were wonderful tasting.)
The kids discovered they did better if they held up signs that said, "Lemonade 25 cents" as opposed to having it hang on the table.
