Homemade Lemonade

Autumn wanted to make homemade lemonade, so my mom bought her 2 lemons.  We used the recipe from our Little House on the Prairie book.  1 Cup Boiling Water, 1 Cup Sugar, 3 lemons squeezed, 3 Cups cold water.

She poured a cup of sugar into a mixing bowl while the water was busy boiling.
She added 1 cup of boiling water and stirred the mixture until the sugar dissolved.
We squished the lemons by rolling them before cutting them open to get them nice and juicy.
If life hands you might be dyslexic.
Sqeeeeeeeeeeeeeze the lemons into the mixture.  We sqeeeeeeezed 4 halves.  Our hand were pretty tired after that.
After the lemon had been added, we put the mixture in a pitcher and added 3 cups of very cold water.
The lemonade was delicious!  It was very sweet!
