Summer Stand

It's blistering hot and you can't hit the pool or do anything because you've got the no-money blues - never fear! There's an easy way to make a few bucks when the sun is shining, and people will even thank you for it!  First thing is first, you need to decide where you want to have your stand and ideally rope your BFF or your siblings into helping out (just remember to be fair and split the profits at the end of the day!) If you pick a park or a beach, you're bound to get a ton of walk-by traffic, but you might need to enlist your parents to help you car the stuff there, and help set up. Check out the list of things you'll need.

What You'll Need

  • Lemonade
  • Table (a folding table is ideal if you're going far from your house)
  • Tablecloth (this can piece of drop cloth)
  • Plastic Cups
  • A sign (this could be a fun art project on it's own, remember to set your price and stick to it)
  • A cooler or ice (especially if you aren't near your house)
  • Apron (lemonade doesn't seem messy, but accidents happen!)
  • Change (people might ask you to break a bill)

Tips & Tricks

  • There are lots of ways to make your stand more appealing, here are a few of them:
  • Decorate your table with flowers
  • Make your sign colorful and enticing! Lemonade is a cheerful business after all
  • Whether you decide to make your lemonade from scratch or from concentrate, make it more enticing by adding slices of lemon at the top (it'll make it taste fresher too!)
  • Don't be shy! Make sure people know you're there and then reel them in with your charm.

My friend in real life sent me a message on the phone this summer saying that i'm not friends with her anymore. She didn't provide any details in her text or put any reasons why she decided to not be friends with me. I thought the reason why she wasn't friends with me was because I didn't plan anything to do with her during the summer, so I sent a text back saying that I had really missed her, and I was sorry for not planning to do anything with her. I didn't talk to her a lot on the phone during the summer and that was the first text i sent to her after she sent that text.   Do you think negligence is the reason why she isn't friends with me? What will happen when I enter 5th grade, and all of a sudden she doesn't talk to me anymore. How will i ever be friends with her again? What should I say to her at the beginning of 5th grade? Love, J.H

So basicall, i am changing. Your changing.. so possibly the way you view your friendship is changing too.. I am going into middle school. I am worried if my best freind is becoming a jerk.He has harrased me for not hanging out with him every recess. If you hung out with him before in every recess hes probably feeling like your moving away from him.. and you are since your following statement is He has been ungrateful everytime i did him a favor. Friends doesnt count favours - and what kind of favours do you think your doing for him that he doesnt and hasnt done for you over the years you has been best friends? He even went to do "magic" with his neighbor when i was over. He is also the type that could probably get in trouble the first day. Your making judgements about him and why does you think he is the type that is gonna get in trouble?  Your his friend.  Talk to him... Do you think I should ditch him?. No. Hes growing and changing too.  If he really is your best friend - talk to him.. tell him how your feeling and say what is bothering you and sorts it out. Good luck :love

Ditch? Absolutely no. And..You should talk to him and ask him what's going on and why he's doing it. But you should ask him calmly or he will feel bad. All the best!!
