Hot Children in the City

One day of AlleyFest down, one more to go. I had to leave a few hours early today as it was so freaking hot I was about to pass out. The one time I went out walking the block with dad to see stuff and get food, I just about passed out from heat and exhaustion. Whoever the genius was who thought it would be fun to have a street carnival in East Texas in June, I have to wonder at their sanity.

Griping about weather aside, it was really fun working the booth today. For my part, I was showing kids how to make recycled paper. We added wildflower seeds so the kids could plant it, which they all thought was pretty cool. I had some awesome volunteers who were helping me out and the folks running the show—weather oblivious though they might be—were really nice. They provided lots of water and we got some cool orange shirts and free food!

In all, it was a good day, but I have to wonder if I’m going to be brave/stupid enough to do it again next year.

Off to sleep so that I can get up and do it again tomorrow.
