Estes: Learning by doing

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.


Langreck: Off the beaten track

When someone says they like to travel, it usually means to another country or to states known as travel destinations. When I say I like to travel, it usually means I like to travel throughout Indiana and visit the hidden gems that the state has to offer.


Langreck: Walking the walk

Throughout the past several months, individuals have picked up hobbies to help pass the time during quarantine and adjust to restrictions and regulations that were put into place to help slow the spread of COVID-19.


Quinlan: Dreaming of the State Fair

Is it normal to write an entire blog about a waffle grilled cheese sandwich? Probably not. But here I am, daydreaming about Indiana Dairy’s signature grilled cheese sandwich.



Quinlan: Cultivate the seeds of safety

Summer is just around the corner, and soon kids will be home from school. Whether that means working on 4-H projects, tending to gardens or running in the yard — youth will be spending more time outside.



Quinlan: Flowers welcome us home

We moved to a new home in the country, and I love how the home welcomes us. On sunny days the iris buds wave hello. We have a parade of violets and dandelions.


Quinlan: Happy Mother’s Day

To the moms who stay up late worrying about your children. To the ones working hard, who can barely keep their eyes open because they’re so tired. I see you.
