Lorelei & Gryffy have been wanting to do a lemonade stand for so long, and I kept putting it off because we live down a very un-busy street. It all seemed like such a hassle.
But when these kids teamed up with neighbors and insisted on raising money for Children's Mercy, how could I say no? And so we made a plan to meet at the busy trail intersection, ran to Walmart for some cardboard, pitchers, fresh lemons and a yellow table cloth, and the lemonade stand was on.
Our neighbor Ava made the lemonade, we got busy painting, and we packed up our table and things and set off. Then Sophie came and joined us, Mark set up his blizzard fan, and these kids danced around enthusiastically with signs and put on quite a show for business on this stifling summer day.
