So, after my last post of our pretend Lemonade Stand, we had a real one. This time, for a good cause. It was service project week for moms group and we were trying to think of something that 10 kids under 6 could actually do. Hence, the lemonade stand was born. A two year old from our church was recently diagnosed with cancer and we thought, what a great way to help their family out. We talked and prayed for their family in the week ahead and made sure the kids knew the reason why we were doing the lemonade stand. They loved it. Especially Avery, who is quite the natural saleswoman. We had the stand in my front yard, which is across from an elementary school. This was perfect on this super hot(103 degree) day. We were shocked when we counted all the money after we were done, $300! That's right, we were in shock, but feel like God truly provided. If you want to read more about Hazel, the little girl we helped, here is the link to her blog.
Kinley was sleeping and Sadie had gone home, but this is most of the moms group kids. We have been together as a group since our oldest kids were babies and I can't even express what an amazing thing it is to have these people in my life. It doesn't hurt that we are live in such close proximity.
