A perfect summer memory created this week. My children have been plotting for a while with our lovely new neighbours to set up a lemonade stand. I finally relented yesterday and agreed they could try it today and preparations began in earnest immediately. Along with stand building, price negotiations and profit sharing, there was a huge marketing campaign underway at the pool during their swimming lessons this morning. Despite nearly being rained out, they set up shop and within 5 minutes there was a steady stream of customers. It was amazing!
I made a few quick phone calls to neighbours to make sure that at least they'd get a few takers, but I was staggered at the amount of people who we didn't know who stopped and supported their little enterprise. In the end they sold out within an hour and a half and had to turn people away! Needless to say they were elated with their success and I feel very grateful that we live in an area where people are so kind and generous.
