The heat of summer is the perfect time for lemonade stands!
Blogger Matthew Paul Turner describes what lemonade stands meant for him as a kid, mean to him now as a father, and how they can be a great way to get kids involved with helping others around the world.
On a hot summer day when I was 9 years old, my younger sister and I decided that we were going to set up a lemonade stand at the end of our driveway. Upon telling our father about our plan, he grimaced slightly. Now, Dad wasn’t exactly against the idea of Elisabeth and me selling mediocre lemonade to the people who drove by our house, he just worried that our backroad wasn’t an ideal location for that to happen.
