lemonade for sale!

My students are just so gosh darn cute! I am going to miss them more than anything in Korea, hands down!

This week I organized a lemonade stand for my after school to operate and sell to the other students. Bought some lemonade mix, made some cute posters to hang around the school and they were on their way to being just like any American kid during the summer (except it was raining outside, fucking monsoon season.)

They really are so smart, I gave them everything they needed, they made the lemonade, handled all the money, poured each student a glass and ran around with signs yelling "LEMONADE FOR SALE!" We made 13,000 krw and on Thursday I am going to buy them pizza to celebrate the end of the school year. This is the last week of school and then for four weeks I have summer camps, which is awesome because I only have to work from 9 -12 everyday :) These kids are real dolls and have made my experience in Korea so amazing!!

First we made the signs...

Our eager customers (my 5th grade students, they were so excited all day  to buy lemonade from us!)

Harry was an expert lemonade pourer...

These girls walked around the whole time yelling, they will be good salesgirls one day.

Jayden, one of my favorite students!

Lemonade stand = success!
