I had always thought that 4H was just about raising Rabbits, Chickens, Pigs, etc etc… I had no idea how much more 4H really offered until we joined last year. While the animal part is still very appealing to us, we are not in a situation to participate in that part of 4H at this time. The future though…who knows?
I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome 4H has been as part of our education. Entomology, Photography, Food and Nutrition, Community Service, Public Speaking, Leadership, Clowning…. and the list goes on and on!
Currently we are preparing for the County competitions. This is our first time and while it is overwhelming, it is very fun! Morgan chose to enter more than one competition. Her choices were Education Presentation, Food and Nutrition, Photography, as well as participating in a Clowning Skit for Share the Fun.
She has learned so much at the classes and has made a lot of wonderful friends. Even the little ones get to participate in a program called Clover Buds. I have to say, I have met some of the most awesome parents and people during this short time!
I can not wait until next session to see what is planned! I’m so glad to have found a program that is so interested in our children and the adults that they will grow up to be. Did I mention that 4H is free? You only buy supplies when you need them, which really has not been all that much. It is a great supplement to your child’s education.
I wish I had been in 4H as a child. If you were in 4H I would love to hear about your experiences! Did it help you with college? Your career? Tell us all about it!
