Summer

This morning, the kids and I went to Lake Elmo to swim and hang out for a couple of hours.  The kids played in the water and sand and I got to sit under a tree and read my book.  Quite an enjoyable way to spend the morning. 

This afternoon, the kids - mostly Micah and Johanna - set up a lemonade stand down the street at the park.  They have been begging to do this so, finally, I said they could.  They did all of the planning and work and did it quite well.  After a while, Johanna came home with a blue mouth, grinned at me with blue teeth and said, "We got ice cream."  Seems they used the profit they earned from selling 5 cups of lemonade plus the original change and bought themselves ice cream from the ice cream truck. 

Obviously, the most logical way to use the money.  At least by 9 and 11 year old logic.

Sam came home holding an empty popsicle stick, covered in something sticky, and so very happy. 

This is summer.
