Continuing on with our 4-H theme this July (my apologies if you were never in or never heard of 4-H) – my Indiana State Fair 4-H charm bracelet:
It represents a lot of 4-H memories for me. When I was in 4-H, each time you had a project go to State Fair, you got a charm. Didn’t it work out great that my charms just happened to fill up the bracelet perfectly?
I earned my first charm in my fourth year of 4-H. And guess what? This is my oldest daughter’s fourth year, and she gets to take something to the state fair for the first time as well. Very neat!
Unfortunately, I don’t think the state fair has continued the charm-giving tradition. I guess we’ll find out. And, I really don’t wear this bracelet much. As you can imagine, it’s pretty noisy. But each year I do dust it off to wear a time or two to the fair, where it’s quite a conversation piece.
