(This is Kristine. I am sitting with M, E, O and W – the campers of Camp MEOW. We have worked hard all day on our recipe for our lemonade stand. We’d like to share it with you now. But, first, I am turning over the reins of the blog to the kids! So everything you read from now on has been dictated to me by the campers. Oh, and also, check out that fabulous logo that Mr. L custom made for our adventures, based on the kids’ design ideas. Clearly, I paired up with the right family!)
M (age 5): Today we tried honey lemonade and sugar lemonade. The sugar was the best.
E (age 6): I love lemonade. It is the best drink I ever had.
O (age 7): We did a science experiment. It was when we took some cups of water. One cup had hotter water and the other had colder. The sugar dissolved in the hot water. In the cold one it stayed there. I thought the hot water would dissolve it and I was right.
W (age 7): We had a taste test where we closed our eyes and Mommy put honey lemonade in our glasses. We tried it. And then we put sugar lemonade in it. We tried it. Then, we voted by raising our hands. And the sugar water was the best out of all the children in Camp MEOW.
M: We made a recipe of the lemonade, two kinds. But the sugar one was best. So we have the sugar in this blog.
E: I splat in the water. What I mean is that I was just at the creek and I was trying to get back to the main spot and on accident I slipped in the water. And, I got so wet!
O: It took six lemons to make one cup of juice.
W: I thought making a lemonade stand would be easier. It turned out to be really, really hard. I thought it would just take three days to do it. Even though it is taking so long, I have a really good time with O, M, and E!
