adventures in Fayetteville...
On Saturday, we got up very early….and headed to Fayetteville. We got breakfast for the road and I woke up enough to have a good long talk with Andy about some of our future plans and dreams. Some of which include me doing more art and photography and working on turning it into a freelance career sometime in the future. I’m pretty excited about the idea and am glad Andy is supportive too.
We made it to our site in Fayetteville and gathered up our group of Red Cross teen volunteers. We had a really good turnout – about 15 teens and one parent came out to help clean up the streets of Fayetteville for a citywide project called “Fayetteville Beautiful”. It was a great day weather-wise – not too hot but plenty sunny. I took a group of teens on one side of the road and the parent volunteer took the rest of the teens on the other side of the road. Andy drove the car with water and extra supplies and met up with us at various points along the way (he’s doing a lot better walking, but I knew this would be way too much for him). The teens did a great job…for the first 2 hours…the last hour got rough…everyone was getting tired and hungry. We finished up right at about 3 hours and all went to CiCi’s for lunch. They did a great job and it was a great community activity for us to do.
