This blog is one of the last, for now at least, in what has turned out to be a series of sorts about helping five of my six kids prepare their projects and livestock for the 2021 Johnson County 4-H Fair.
With six kids, it can be hard to find time to do individual activities or have one-on-one talks with them. Usually, when one kid does something, it’s a good bet that at least two others want to join in on the fun, as well.
Last week, my husband and I decided to take the family on vacation and decided on camping — in the backyard. He thought it would make for great practice when all eight of us go on trips throughout the years to come.
It is no secret that I have a deep passion for anything related to vocational agriculture, especially when it comes to 4-H and FFA. This year I was lucky to have the opportunity to once again serve as a judge for the Leadership Development Events at the 92nd Indiana FFA State Convention.
As you may be able to tell from the title of my blog, this is another part in my 4-H saga with my kids and the struggles and successes we have been experiencing. This story revolves around my two children who are showing sheep and having to complete the YQCA, which is also known as Youth for the Quality Care of Animals certification.
