I did spend the weekend at the fair. In the hot sun and I worked a lot – from noon until 10pm. I probably worked a half hour shift every 1.5 hours. When I was out in the sun for 30 minutes waving a flag around, I’d easily drink a liter of water. I got sunburned on my chest where I wore a V-neck and forgot to sunscreen. When I was out of the sun, I slept and chatted. Below is command central “Baker” where the boys dispatch people via walkie talkies.
A storm rolled in at 7:30 and the kids were pulled out of the field into the cars. The grown ups were suppose to take over all the kid positions too. I was a little wary of that, standing in the middle of a parking lot with lightening strikes happening. So after I helped batten down the hatches, I went into the car with my carpool boys.
