4H part 2









another special part of 4H was the friendships the kids made, especially the week of fair where they spent all day long with eachother tending to their various animal projects, sipping soda, and trying to stay out of mischief.  last week a tragedy occured when a friend from their club, garrett thiel passed away. we were all so impressed by him and his kindness and maturity.  garrett's sweet mother is also addy's reading teacher at school and would tell addy about the grand plans he had for the upcoming year raising his steer... he wanted to try massaging it like they do to kobe beef in japan:)  the example he set will always be remembered and we pray that his family finds peace at such a difficult time, he will surely be missed, but we know we will see him again!

I love the picture of Tade looking at the pig. Priceless.
