We had alot of workshops including ATV safety, Driving safety, Tractor Safety, leadership, bullying, Electrical safety, food saftey and Drug safety just to name a few. We also did team building activities. They were actually kind of fun. We got to make a boat out of swimming pool noodles and duck tape. We got second place with our version. I even got thrown in the air like a cheerleader. There was a dance every night too. I got to dance with alot of girls. Any girl that I asked dance with me. I even got to dance with this one girl more then once. Okay, I actually got to dance with her alot. She is really nice and the only reason I didn't get to dance with her more is because she was busy giving the little kids turns at dancing. That and I only dance to Country Music. No hip hop for me! Another problem with dancing at a 4-H dance is that you can be no closer to the other person then a large glow stick. Do you know how embarrassing it is to have an adult put a glow stick between you and your girl while you are trying to dance.... Okay it was actually really funny but embarrassing at the same time. Everyone in the room can see the glow stick so you don't dare get to close or the adults come in and glow stick ya.
Oh did you catch that "your girl" reference??? Yes, it is true at camp I got my first official Girl Friend. Girl friend in the sense that she asked me if I wanted to go out and I said yes. What does that mean? Well, It means that if we can get our parents to allow us to go the same events we can hang out. Okay, Okay I know you are dying to know ... NO I didn't get to kiss her. The other problem with 4-H Camp is that there are adults everywhere. You can't get 5 seconds to yourself let alone with another person. So where does it go from here? Well, we aren't planning to get married or anything but we are trying to get our parents to let us both go to the same Rodeo Tomorrow.
To tell the truth I don't know if I will be alive tomorrow to even go. You see it is pretty easy to talk to Mom about things. Heck she seems to know even before I tell her anyway. Like getting a girl friend, Mom asks alot of questions but not to many. It is all cool with her, but DAD???? This is one time I am not ashamed to say I am a coward! Hey, don't judge have you met my Dad? He thinks all I ever need to do is work, ride, eat and sleep. He thinks everyone is to young for women... Even himself.
Don't worry, I am going to tell him just not the way you think. Have I ever told you how much I love my Mommy .... LOL .... You guessed it. Mom will be breaking the news to Dad for me just like she did when my sister started dating.
