I am catching-up to the weekly word prompts for Inktober52. I chose a Lemonade Stand. When growing up in coastal New England, my neighbor, Marcia and I would host a lemonade stand occasionally.

Our daughters hosted a couple of lemonade stands. Only 14 states allow impromptu lemonade stands. I have only lived in states where it is permissible. It is a great way for kids to start to learn about business.
