Thankful Thursdays - 7/23/15 - Our 4-H Fair

We are so thankful for our local 4-H program. This is our Fair Week and we've been trying to enjoy it all. Having friends in 4-H in other states, we understand how blessed we are to participate in 4-H in Indiana, where Purdue University oversees the statewide program. Not everything is perfect, but there are a lot of things we do right here in 4-H. One of the best things is 4-H Fair Week!

There are so many projects to view, livestock competitions to watch, and friends to meet up and talk with. Our girls especially like to wander the aisles of the Rabbit barn and see all of their friends' bunnies. There was a cute set of lion head babies with their Mama... just old enough to be cute little tan puffballs.

I appreciate the ability for our girls to participate in 4-H. Much has changed since I was in 4-H as a child, but the overall program continues strong with the focus on the 4-Hers learning while doing their projects. This leads them to fulfill the motto: "To make the best better."

We had a fun day at the fair yesterday. I've included just a few photos from early in the day. We watched several classes of the sheep competition, and the weather was picture perfect. I knew that after we left, the rest of the parking lot would fill up with people coming to watch the Supreme Showmanship competition, ride the rides, and of course ... eat fair food!

What are you thankful for today?
