I have kids that are really wanting to join 4-H. We have goats, chickens, and rabbits at the moment...nothing with papers. And I know NOTHING about 4-H. What amount of time you spend in meetings, people, cost, etc. I don't even know if they have a local one....I have been a little hesitant to call the 4-H phone number because I have no clue what exactly to ask. Did I mention I was shy and I am only a few years into playing "farmer"? I don't know anything about shows and such.....not sure how much parent involvement is needed. I don't mind....don't get me wrong...I just don't know what help I would be and I do not want to embarrass the kids anymore that I have too....... I don't know if we have enough time to dedicate to it. I work and we only use one car. Kids are ages 9, 9, 11, and 12 that are interested. Maybe I should just get over being a worry-wart and check it out....but I figured someone on BYC has some experience with this. Thank you!!!!
