Lemonade...50 Cents!

I'm playing catch up because I've been a naughty blogger. So, my next few posts may be a bit outdated, but none the less, worth posting.

The first event I wanted to bring you up to date on is the Lemonade Stand!

Our friends Stephenie and Raelee were having a lemonade stand and wanted to know if we wanted to participate. Of course we did! Especially when we found out where the money that they would be earning would be going. Not into their own pockets, but to children in Indonesia for school supplies and toys! Beautiful! A lesson in money, advertising, and missions all at the same time.

We baked bread, cupcakes, and banana bread and headed over to their house. We were greeted with a beautiful set up stand, which I wish I could share with you, but I don't have one that doesn't have my kids faces in it. But I will share with you The Middle Apple and the roadside sign.
And The Little Apple checking to make sure the lemonade was sweet enough.
After about an hour of running the lemonade stand (IT'S REALLY HARD WORK!) The girls played. And ate the profit.
Just kidding. We were surprised to learn that the girls had earned almost $50 for the children in Indonesia. Thanks for asking us to help Stephenie! We had a blast.

It was indeed a wonderful lemonade stand and the toys for the children made it safely to Singapore. I will post when we make a delivery. Thank you so much for participating - and hug the girls.
