Lemonade stand

We finally did it!  The kids and I have been wanting to do a lemonade stand for quite some time.  They have seen pictures of them and wanted to experience the same thing.  However, we live on a cul de sac with a total of 15 houses on our street.  In one hour we are lucky to see 2 cars (and it might be the same car coming and going).  We had one today (Friday) and decided to try again Saturday afternoon when the traffic volume will be a bit higher.

So I contacted a couple of neighbors and had them come over.

First sale of the day

They SCORED!!  We have very generous neighbors.  They had a total of 9 customers and they made $5.45.  Selling the lemonade for .10 left them with a pretty hefty tip jar.  Thanks neighbors! It's going straight into a rothIRA or maybe a 521 savings plan... or we can always just blow it at yogurt palace!!
