::Emmerson:: The Plague of Sorts

Posted 2018-02-04 15:19:38
I never get sick. I have felt kinda icky for a week but we all figured it was just allergies. Today I landed myself at the pediatrician. They immediately administer a breathing treatment with orders for more mediation and rest. I was not a happy camper. At least the office nebulizer was a whale. It was cute but I was still not having it! Just a boy and a whale. I cam home and [...]

::Breighton:: It started out good...

E wasn't feeling well so he skipped PE this week. I was really in my element and enjoy the games and talking with friends. Our Forest Ecology Team kicked off for the year and we learned about identifying trees and plants. We went on a short hike to try our hangs at some tree ID! I managed to make it until Thursday and started to feel icky. My throat was itchy. Mom [...]

::Emmerson:: Another busy 4-H week

Posted 2018-01-26 14:57:56
We had archery class on Monday with Dad. We are all getting so much better! Wednesday was our regular club and we invited another club to join us. We had youth doing teaching this week so we had a busy educational part of the meeting. We went out to the docks to fish and the tide was so low that there was really no place to fish. We gave it the 4-H try and [...]

::Breighton:: 4-H Fun For January

Posted 2018-01-25 14:58:00
We are having fun in the archery program. Dad is the coach and he does a good job with all the kids. I have taken a break from my compound bow this season and am shooting with Mom's recurve. I am trying to build up my confidence a little bit more. We ducked out to go to Disney and enjoy some rides in the middle of the week. We were all exhausted and headed home to [...]

::Breighton:: First Florida 4-H Insectathon

Posted 2018-01-21 14:36:49
This may have been my dream since I was three years old. I have been insect obsessed for years as many of you know. We gathered at the University of Florida's Entomology department for the first annual Insectathon contest. We turned in out collections of insects and our artwork and moved to our contest rooms. We had different rotations through each category demonstrating our ability at insect id, general knowledge, pollinators, skills at identifying pests [...]

::Emmerson:: Florida 4-H Insectathon

Posted 2018-01-20 14:36:46
This was the first year for the official Insectathon. There was a great amount of participation and lots of room for growth going forward. We studied as much as we could and our efforts and lifelong love of insects paid off. We turned in our collections, months and months of hard work collecting, mounting and labeling insects galore! We rotated through the rooms with ease. Some things were hard since we didn't know they were on [...]
