4th-6th grades have Photography this year for 4-H!! Needless to say, that's what Aly chose!

Photography sounds pretty cool. Does she have friends also doing photography? You'll have to fill us in on how photography skills progress for her. From the photos my daughter has taken, I can't imagine it would be good for her.

We bought Aly her own digital in Colorado this year. I cannot brag enough about her nature pics. She did a really great job once she learned to be patient...lol. We were on the trip with 2 ornithologists (bird people), and they were amazed at her patience (LOL--she had had the camera for about 3 days and had already taken hundreds of pics). She did get some great pics of a rare sighting of a bird in Arizona. Our friend is actually reporting the sighting with her name as well and her pics.

I don't know if anyone else will be in Photography. We usually have a pretty large club, but so far she is only one of 2 that has paid. Of course, we did just have a devastating hurricane.

That sounds like an exciting opportunity.

I think it will be!


When I was in 4-H in 4th grade, it was one of the projects I chose, but couldn't complete.

It is always great when parents promote their kids enthusiasm and natural wonderment into learning opportunities!

Thanks Dawn.

Our fairs don't have photography exhibits.

However, someone just started a 4-H Photography Club state-wide with options for individuals to start parish (county) clubs. Our parish 4-H is HUGE, so I'm sure someone will start a parish club. If not, she will be able to join the state club.

I think this is the first year this club is offered, and I only got the e-mail because I do a weeklong unit in my classroom every year with info from the 4-H Extension on Youth Wetlands Week in Louisiana (I'm not a 4-H Club Leader). So I was kind of an accidental recipient of the e-mail...lol.
