The Iowa State Fair is in full swing and it has me reminiscing about my time in 4-H.
Sonya and I have been cracking each other up telling stories about this period in our lives. Remember keeping a 4-H Record Book?
How about learning how to sew? My Grandma Susan was an excellent seamstress and Mom wasn’t too shabby, either. Me – not so much.
Sewing and baking projects often led to some epic fights between Mom and me – hence the tear-stained face in this photo.
I think that episode might have led to me writing this line, “Sometimes I hate 4-H but other times I enjoy it.”
I actually had a lot of fun in 4-H and I’m glad I can manage some mending and follow a recipe because of those experiences.
Do you have some favorite (or frustrating or funny) 4-H and State Fair memories?
