5 Years of 4-H

The 4-H year has ended and the county always has an afternoon to pass out awards.  Cara received her certificate for being a 4-H member for 5 years.

She doesn't realize the life lessons that she is learning and how learning these skills is shaping her life, but someday she will.  Every time she wants to quit, I respond with a "NO" because these skills will come in handy some day when she leaves our home and has a home of her own.

The 4-H year starts again in a few months.  Next year we will have all four in 4-H.  Justin turning 8 years old made him old enough to give it a try.  There will be many projects to take to the fair next summer.

Take care,


  1. Love all the life lessons they are learning and you so right -- someday she will be so happy to have learned so much at 4H!

  2. I loved 4-H. Please continue to encourage her to do 4-H I have used so many of the skills I learned there throughout my life.
