Day at the Capitol

In the fall, we started a little 4H Club. It’s been fun for the kids and we’re all learning a lot this first year. We’re just learning the ropes this year, and I’m hoping to really get some fun things planned for next year.

Our club officers (and Annabelle- she’s just a Cloverbud and can’t be an official member/officer until she is in 3rd grade), participated in 4H day at the Capitol on February 5th.

My BIL, Van and I took a loaded down Suburban to Tallahassee for the event. IMG_8568

We heard speakers on the steps of the Capitol building, including the Commissioner of Agriculture, who said he was a past 4Her. IMG_8500We had meetings with our state Representative and Senator from our district, toured the Florida State museum of history, IMG_8560IMG_8581and the historic capitol building.

We made our way to the Capitol building…IMG_8575

We got the best view of Tallahassee from the top…IMG_8535
