SUMMER IS HERE!
We celebrated the first day of summer by having lemonade stand! It all started with Anya's desire to have her own lemonade stand to raise money for our upcoming trip to Disneyland to buy souvenirs. I thought that, while this was a great idea, she could donate some of her earnings to the local food bank: Fishline. Then Daddy found in the paper one day that Crayons Lemonade was giving away stands and lemonade to 1,000 kids across the nation, with all the proceeds from the stands to go to the charity of the child's choice. So we signed up and received our lemonade and stand and we were off! Instead if making money for herself she donated to Fishline and had a great time doing it. Even Lila got into the act calling out "Fresh Lemonade, nice and tasty." when it was her turn at the stand. We will still let her have a stand for Disneyland, but I think this was a great way to kick off Anya's entrepreneurial career. The kids also had a great time that day 'helping' at our church's car wash for and upcoming missions trip. All in all it was a full but fun way for our family to celebrate Midsommer.
