 FOREVER SINGED

The last
summer in my
teens, I learned that playing
with fire is the fastest way to
get burned.

Alone In A Crowd

ALONE IN A CROWD

The family “summer vacations” are planned. Money laid away. And children are counting the days until they hit their favorite vacation spots. I will see some go to the beach to play in sand and surf; others, to the Happiest Place on earth. Photos will be taken…many of which I will offer to take so dad or mom is not left out. Souvenirs purchased. Memories will be made, and each family will go their own way at the end of the day. Together. And I will return to my home. Alone.

 4H: LEARN BY DOING

Anticipating the State Fair
as the summer rolls along.
Such great fun we can share:
livestock, crafts, and cookery; finish strong,

as the summer rolls along.
We band together
livestock, crafts and cookery! Finish strong
no matter the weather.

We band together
such great fun we can share.
No matter the weather,
anticipating the State Fair!
