::Breighton:: Crunch Time

Posted 2017-05-09 07:57:45
This week you can find me with the laptop or books studying for my first ever major high school test. I will be taking the Florida Biology End of Course Exam at the local high school this week. I am nervous but I really know the material. The questions are still really hard since they aren't very black and white, they draw on knowledge application. I took time out of the studying to attend my friend's [...]

::Emmerson:: 4-H District Events

Posted 2017-05-07 08:07:05
I have been prepping for weeks. Every day I go over my speech a few times. This year I presented on Invasive Species. My demonstration was logical, orderly and well put together. I overcame a lot of struggles and fears of speaking in front of people. I may have spoken a little softly at the start but I settled in and my personally came through. Sadly, the judges didn't see this. I was really hoping for [...]

I am now a youth ambassador of the 4-H Association Sub-Commitee from Program Development. This means I attend meetings 3-4 times a year to talk about programs or things we can add to 4-H. We had District Events this weekend. I did a great job and earned a blue ribbon. I also, on a whim, opted to run for District IX council. I am the historian for the District 9 council. District 9 is 6 counties locally. Cheering on [...]

I enjoyed Breighton's early birthday party. It was a lot of fun to spend time with friends at the spray ground. We all had a great time. I even had two sliced of cake! B is a great big brother even if he is mean to me some times. I love that he plays imagination games with me still.

::Emmerson:: It's all about BUGS

Posted 2017-05-04 07:59:52
We had a great time at Grandma and Grandpa's wandering around the lake catching critters. I caught a really neat dragonfly! We got some new bug collecting and mounting items from BioQuip! I am excited to try out my new net. I love my new net. I used it to stalk some butterflies in Dunedin. My prized collection is a near perfect sample of a giant swallowtail butterfly! It took me almost 20 minutes to catch. I am having [...]

Since I will be at a 4-H camp on my actual birthday we had a little party at the spray ground before all my friends scatter for summer vacations.   We had a great time splashing around and staying cool in the water.

Practicing for the family clown games. Okay, that's not a real thing. We were just being goofy! DOG PILE!  TA-DA! DAD! HANDS ON THE GROUND! AHHHH!

::Breighton:: Silly Strings and Other Things

Posted 2017-04-27 21:06:15
We spent Sunday at Grandma and Grandpa's house while Dad worked on a motorhome project. We had a fun walk about the trails collecting bugs and then headed back to swim the day away in their pool. This week we are spending wrapping up school for the year and cleaning the house. E attacked me with silly string and a huge battle broke out. The silly string stuck to our hair and Mom has to scrape it [...]
