FFA and the Fair

You don't hear many kids that want to grow up and be a farmer anymore. If you don't grow up raising wheat, cattle or the like you probably never would think about FFA. But the reality is that many "city kids" are in FFA, its an amazing leadership organization that teaches so much more than farming. It teaches you to be a better steward of what God has given us and where we live, to speak clearly and to be understood. I travelled the world when I was in FFA and am a much richer person in my character due to my time under Mr Smith and his leadership. If you have a chance to go see the fair this weekend watch the FFA kids prepare their lambs or steers for the showring. There is a lot of pride and time in that experience.

love your post about FFA. I want my girls to be in it when they are in HS. Even if it's just for Parliamentary Procedure!
