Victoria and I are having lots of fun with 4H this year. We start our meeting with games to promote public speaking and then spend the rest of the time working on a project. This past month's topic was Pets. Of course Victoria chose to learn more about her Syrian Longhaired hamster named Georgie. All the kids chose a pet, or a pet they would like to have. They researched proper diet, habitat, anatomy, the breeds origin and interesting facts. The kids also sewed 14 felt mice and 22 strings on a stick kitty toys for the humane society which were greatly appreciated. Victoria is very excited about the Fair this summer knowing that she might be able to win a ribbon for any of her projects. This will be her first year that she can do that since Cloverbuds don't win place ribbons. They usually get participation ribbons.
