Life On The Farm As The Years Fly Bye

We All Learn At a Different Pace

What did I learn about myself through my 4-H participation?

I learned that it is not easy to be 16 and on the edge of adulthood.

Head - to clear thinking, when giving your word to someone, think about how it will affect your heart if you buckle to peer pressure and go against your morals and ethics .

Heart - to greater loyalty; loyalty is something that is given freely and cannot be demanded or forced upon someone.

Hands - to larger service, you can only do what you feel is right and work hard to achieve your goals.

Health - to better living; if your word is your honor, and you stand fast to your morals and ethics; loyalty will come to you freely, your goals will be realized, and you will make a difference in the world around you.

I love 4-H !

Peer pressure is one of the hardest things we face; stay true to yourself no matter how hard it is and make a difference!

I had a great time at the Fair this year, all my steers behaved and my Dad came home without one bruise; ha ha that a first! On Sunday I sent Dan off and Cleaned the Barn. I am Home and getting ready for next year.

I am already thinking about my new steers, what kind of quilt I will make, and what other projects I will do.

I will start school on 9/21/09 but for the next week I will just take a little vacation and veg out for awhile.

I will be posting pictures of all my friends at the fair soon so check back in a few days. I will also post my open class entries.
