School has started but I’m still in summer mode. I love summer vacation. I think it’s such a great time for everyone, kids and parents, to recover from the craziness of the school year. Those brain cells need a little break from all that serious learning.

I can’t believe how serious school has become. Getting homework in kindergarten? Luckily it’s mostly reading. But when you are battling with your second grader over his weekly book report where you should just be happy he loves to read?! Hopefully this new year will be different.

These first few weeks of school are always exciting. Kids get to see their friends. They share their summer stories with each other. New school supplies are purchased. New school clothes are shown off.

One summer bucket list item that my kids got to fulfill was a make shift lemonade stand at the park. Yes, we made HOMEMADE lemonade. Not that powder stuff. It was all last minute, so I mixed up some of this Honey Lemonade with mint.

Then my kids invited the neighbors. Then a cousin came over and I was making a bigger pitcher of lemonade. We had plenty of lemons on our very full lemon tree. You know the saying, when life gives you lemons…..

And yes, we had pomegranate marshmallows to share, a very unique item for a lemonade stand, I confess. I had finished up a batch of pomegranate marshmallows and I didn’t want my kids eating them all. What better way to share it then to walk to our park and make a lemonade stand.

Our marketing plan was not sound. The employees ate most of the inventory. Then we found friends at the playground and just donated the rest to them to enjoy. But it was fun and memories were made. And that is EXACTLY what summer is all about, in my opinion.
