Pumpkin Parables

pumpkin 2010

Nick’s State Fair Pumpkin, 2010

Little did I know when I took my kids to their first 4-H meeting 11 years ago how it would change our lives.

The leader walked in with a box of small pumpkins. He pulled a pumpkin out of the box and told a story. The pumpkin had a single bad spot on the back. “The pumpkin could spend its time focused on this bad spot and worrying about its flaws. If it does it misses the point that if you see the other side, you see a pumpkin that’s round and fun and makes people smile.” He had raised  the pumpkins in his garden. Then he gave the kids a pumpkin to take home.

Over time, Dan, that 4-H Leader, became one of the closest friends of my family. He took my kids to heart like he did all the kids in his club, cheering their victories and encouraging their talents. When my son decided he wanted to learn to grow pumpkins as a 4-H project, Dan agreed to let him grow them in his pumpkin patch. He taught Nick how to start them from seed transplant them, and then care for them. Their pumpkin plants became an annual tradition. Each year, they tried different varieties. When the harvest was good, like the year they harvested a truckload, Nick shared pumpkins with all his friends. In lean years, they struggled to find one ready to show at the county and state fairs. Each year, they tried again. Several of Nick’s pumpkins won special merits at the State Fair.

Dan encouraged members of his 4-H Club to participate in speech and demonstration contests, both at the county and state levels. Often, when his club members competed at state speech and demonstration contests, Dan went to support them. In the 20 years Dan has been head leader of his 4-H Club, 5 members won State Fair Demonstration Contests and won trips to Washington, D.C.  Yes, I’m biased – my kids were 2 of those 5. With his encouragement, my daughter won a spot as 1 of 2 Indiana delegates to the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C., and my son won a spot as 1 of 9 Indiana delegates to the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta. His vision broadened my children’s worlds.

Dan’s influence on our family extended beyond pumpkins. He recruited me to become a 4-H Leader and encouraged me to get more involved with our county’s 4-H Leaders and 4-H Council. When our county needed a new computer project superintendent, Dan encouraged me to take it on, and his mother (also a 4-H Leader) showed me how to do the job.

When my daughter broadened her 4-H experiences to include animals, Dan was there. During high school, she exhibited both chickens and llamas, and Dan was always willing to buy her animals at our fair’s premium auction.

As Nick got involved with robotics contests in our area, Dan encouraged me when I decided to start a county robotics project. That expanded into my starting a new club, and Dan again encouraged me to take the leap that became our 4-H Tech Club. Tech Club opened 4-H opportunities to a whole new audience, and Dan used his experiences to mentor me with my new club. I worked to replicate his standards for excellence and desire for diversity and inclusion. Dan had served 2 terms on the National 4-H Leadership Trust and shared their vision with me to help raise the standards in my own club.

Dan became the older brother I never had – the kind who could be completely trusted. He saw me at my worst but inspired me to be my best. I could count on Dan to give me his honest opinion in each situation, which sometimes meant we disagreed. He had no problem telling me no when he thought it was what I needed to hear.

Nick's Confirmation

Nick’s Confirmation

My kids also knew Dan could be trusted – when Nick went through Confirmation, he chose Dan as his sponsor. At the time, Nick told me Dan would make a good sponsor because he lived his faith and always did the right thing. Dan was more than a 4-H Leader; he worked as a local prosecutor for the past 24 years, as the director of drug law enforcement in Vanderburgh County and then as the Chief Deputy Prosecutor of Warrick County.

Dan gave his time to multiple non-profits, including serving as the President of our diocesan St. Vincent de Paul Conference that works to help the poor. His legal expertise helped multiple nonprofits, including our 4-H program and multiple Catholic organizations. In my own community service leadership, Dan helped me whenever needed.

Dan is among that handful of trusted friends I have who are family. During our challenges the past 11 years, including keeping our business viable during the 2008 downturn, recovering from my heart attack, or helping me with legal situations, he was there when needed.

And now times change. The Indiana Prosecuting Attorney’s Council hired Dan as their drug resource prosecutor. He will be moving to Indianapolis to start his new job and a new chapter in his life. So he’s moving when we’re all decorating with pumpkins.

Smiley Face Pumpkin

Smiley Face Pumpkin

Nick displayed his final pumpkin at this year’s fair. He snagged one of my Sharpies and drew a big smiley face on it. I asked him why, and he said that smiley faces make people smile, and he wanted people to smile when they went through the vegetable exhibits.

Anyone who knows my son knows he shares his humor and always finds ways to make life more fun for those around him.

The take-away? When Dan brought that box of pumpkins to a meeting 11 years ago, he was doing with pumpkins what Johnny Appleseed once did. He planted seeds in the youth of his club, as well as countless other organizations. Those seeds have and will spring forth to bear fruit – good fruit – that already do and will continue to make the world a better place.

A 4-H Remixed Recipe Challenge

When I say “I have a dream,” my husband cringes because it often means some massive new project. Well, this time, I was in a dream and it inspired a vision of a new 4-H project: Remixed Recipes. The purpose of the project would be to take old family recipes, analyze their nutritional content, and remix them with changes so they are healthier and provide more nutritional value.

Back story? As our 4-H leaders were recently preparing box lunches for a meal (described in my Box Lunch Balancing Challenge blog), I pushed and prodded more nutrition in each lunch. The president of our 4-H leaders told me as we prepped lunches she had a dream about me the night before.

She dreamed that I started a new 4-H project to encourage healthier eating. In her dream, she saw the project rules:

  1. Members would take a family favorite traditional recipe and analyze its nutrition content.
  2. Members would then replace or add 3 ingredients to make it healthier to eat. They would analyze the nutrition content of the new recipe.
  3. Members would prepare a sample of the new recipe for judges to try and would exhibit the old recipe, with the new one.
  4. These recipes would be kept and accumulated each year so as members continued in the project, they would have a collection of healthier alternatives to family favorites.

This has real potential to be a great 4-H project. Since I’m already covered up as superintendent of 2 project areas (creative writing and robotics) and assistant superintendent of a 3rd (computers), I don’t have the time to make this dream a reality.

In order for it to happen, in our county, we would need to find a superintendent and then work through a process of project review to add it.

Since I was “in a dream,” I now “have a dream” to make this a reality and am looking for someone to shepherd it through the 4-H project process for Vanderburgh County, Indiana.

Then, this morning, national 4-H tweeted about a comparable opportunity. The CDC has a new Recipe Remix tool to remix your favorite recipe.  I asked if there were any counties running this as a project. They said no. Challenge accepted.

  • Can we find someone to make this project happen in our county?
  • If you’re in 4-H in a different county, why don’t you try to make it happen in yours?

In 4-H, we are working to foster a revolution of responsibility, where our young members learn responsibility by doing projects and accepting challenges.

Maybe it’s time as 4-H leaders we start another revolution: a Revolution of Responsible Eating.

My Box Lunch Balancing Challenge

Can food providers provide healthier food options that are affordable and that people will eat?

Vanderburgh 4-H Leaders addressed that challenge this weekend as we provided box lunches for Startup Evansville, a weekend activities to encourage business startups. We needed to provide easy to eat box lunches for participants.

In our county, to help cover the cost of project manuals for 700 4-H members, leaders volunteer to cater fundraisers.

As 4-H Leaders, we are fully committed to teaching youth to make healthful choices.  With this box lunch gig, the question presented itself: will we practice what we teach? If so, how? What will people eat?

The USDA may technically identify a pickle spear as a vegetable (no wonder those school burgers included pickles), but they are a nutrient detriment that adds salt to the diet. So we shopped and bargain hunted, still including some traditional options. Our final decisions?

Day 1 lunch:

  • Hoagie turkey, ham and cheese sandwiches
  • Potato chips
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Organic spring mix lettuces
  • Veggie packs with broccoli, grape tomatoes, celery, and organic carrots.
  • Apples or bananas

Day 2 lunch:

  • Turkey and ham wraps with cheese and organic baby spinach on artisan whole wheat tortillas
  • Potato chips
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Veggie packs with broccoli, grape tomatoes, celery, and organic carrots
  • Apples or bananas
We also included additional trays with extra tomato slices, cucumbers, and green peppers in case anyone wanted to add them to their sandwiches.

After delivering the second day, I stayed to observe participants eating. What foods would they eat? Which would they skip?

They ate the vegetables. (and the chips, cookies, and wraps) Not everyone ate everything, but most of the participants did eat vegetables when offered them as an alternative. Several also chose the fruit.

My challenge to you: if you organize a meal or event, add at least 1 additional fruit or vegetable into the menu.  And add 1 more vegetable a day to your own plate, at each meal.

Comment below to share how you meet the balanced box lunch challenge.

The USDA has ideas on how to incorporate more vegetables into your diet if you need it.

Bottom line: we can balance the traditional box lunch without breaking the bank.

 

5 Ways Extension Transforms My World

“Share your stories,” I was told last week at my first PCaret meeting in Indianapolis. PCaret, or the Purdue Council for Research, Extension, and Teaching. PCaret brings together people who have been impacted by and see the benefits of Extension programming. Here’s my story.

Getting my kids to join 4-H 8 years ago was the best decision I made as a mother.  I never knew it would change our lives.

Computer Hardware Workshop With Webcam

    1. 4-H Prepared My Kids for a Changing World. As my kids begin their college search, their 4-H experiences have prepared them to handle challenges. It’s not just the skills they learned showing chickens, baking pies, or building rockets. It’s their experiences as 4-H camp counselors or leadership training. It’s competing in state contests, managing food booths, volunteering at the State Fair, and more. It’s leadership training in Washington, D.C. and white water rafting in Georgia. Later this spring, my daughter will serve as 1 of 2 Indiana delegates at the National 4-H Conference. 4-H pranks have inspired their creativity. My daughter my son’s Christmas present with duct tape last year (after seeing a 4-H prank). Last weekend at a Product Innovation team scholarship contest, she covered a container with yellow duct tape the same way. Her graphic skills she learned doing project posters helped her, as did experiences working on projects late the night before the fair. She could handle the stress of  getting a challenge at 8 p.m. and working with her team until 3 a.m. to present to faculty members of a university’s School of Business at 9 a.m. the next morning. (They won 1st place.)
    2. 4-H Broadens Knowledge Bases. 4-H is working to build 1 million new scientists with its programming. Locally, I started a Tech Club 6 years ago that offers monthly science workshops. Last year, through corporate donations, we sponsored our first all-club rocket built and launch. With an all-new Junk Box Robotics curriculum designed by national 4-H, we have a template for affordable hands-on workshops that will teach physics, robotics, engineering, and more to our members through workshops for several years.
    3. Extension Homemakers Still Thrives. Last year, I became a Ya-Ya, a local extension club. Our meetings are  my Moms Night Out, when I can learn new things and am encouraged by other busy wives and moms. The younger moms there keep me current on changing trends and technology.  We teach and encourage each other through meeting programs. We share ideas for our homes and families via Pinterest.
    4. 2008 Small Garden Contest Entry

      Master Gardeners Builds Skills. When my daughter went through the Master Gardener program last term, she learned how Japanese beetle traps were made. During last week’s Product Innovation contest, she applied that to her team’s Leprechaun Trap, using a pretty female leprechaun as bait to capture greedy leprechauns. She sold her team members with the point structure (learned from 4-H projects) – half of the points were for creativity and innovation. Like all the other Master Gardeners in our county, she will volunteer 40 hours this year to share knowledge and work in community gardens.

Extension Becomes Extended Family.

    We live in a world where many of us no longer have the support of extended families. Many youth don’t have strong role models. Many of our county’s 4-H leaders are 2nd and 3rd generation volunteers. Some have volunteered more than 40 years. That stability transforms lives.

Thanks to the Millers who helped lead Energetics for 37 years.

Extension’s programs have extended not only our family’s experiences but also our opportunities.

As Extension has transformed my family’s world, it’s inspired us to create a better world for others.

Social Media Safety 4-H Success Story

Social Media Safety workshop in Evansville, Indiana.

Because of Twitter, Facebook, and 4-H, I got to meet some great people to help spread the message of social media safety to a larger audience. As a mother of teens who have been on social media for the past 4 years, the topic is a passion of mine. I’ve presented talks to church groups and youth groups on do’s and don’ts for social media.

Last spring, as I lobbied for 4-H funding at the state and national level, I met a 4-H leader in Massachusetts on Twitter. That became a friendship on Facebook. From there, we began discussing social safety for our communities.

Tonight, that culminates in a Skyped workshop, with my giving half of it in Evansville, Indiana and a Massachusetts speaker giving the other half. If all the technical details work out, our 4-H leaders and youth who participate will get to enjoy the same workshop, at the same time, in different states and different time zones. We’ve never tried this before and hope the technical details work.

We’ve shared information and ideas, regardless of how the tech part goes.

Our 4-H pledge talks about building our club, our community, our country and our world. Tonight, Facebook and Twitter helped us take that pledge to a new level.

The workshop in Evansville is at McCullough Library, 6 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

The 4-H Club Cookoff that Could Cookout

Cracker Jack-topped cupcakes

Stormy weather doesn’t have to destroy a great plan and a good time.

Energetics, my kids’ 4-H club, chose a sports theme for this year’s club cookoff at the Vanderburgh County Fair, held on Saturday evening at the end of Fair Week. Clubs choose a theme, grill a menu, and serve 4 judges in a cookoff contest. Our club makes it bigger. We host a cookout for club members, parents, and even grandparents, to finish the fair in family style.

 

We take our themes seriously. This year, old green outdoor carpet was placed on the ground with a baseball diamond taped around the edges. A tent for the judge’s table was placed in the middle and decorated with helium balloons. Peanuts, popcorn in red and white bags, and crackerjacks decorated the table set with sports-themed plates and napkins. Sports foods were on the menu – brats, hot dogs, potato nachos, watermelon fruit baskets, and soft drinks in bottles. Kids in the club wore sports jerseys.

Thanks to the Millers who helped lead Energetics for 37 years.

We had an extra surprise this year. Two club leaders, Dan and Virginia Miller, were retiring after they had volunteered as club leaders for 37 years. We planned to present them with a thank you gift for their lifetime of service.

When we made our plans, we didn’t think about Mother Nature. An hour before the cookoff, weather reports began: heavy downpours were on the way. We kept cooking and preparing. Half an hour before our judging, the rain poured. With wind. Leaders held onto the sides of our two tents, working to prevent them from being blown away in the storm. Grandparents and members grabbed the lawn chairs and rushed them under the tents.  Grillers covered the grills.  Other clubs around the playground sought shelter in their entry tents as well.

Trying to keep dry during the downpour.

As we stood huddled under tents, we began to sing. “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

The cookout was cancelled because of rain. We had 80 brats and hot dogs grilling and decided to make the best of the mess and eat. When the rain stopped, the Millers joined us. We presented them with their thank you presents and enjoyed our cookout meal. The judges still visited us to thank us for entering, so we serenaded them with “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

So the contest was cancelled. We’ll never know if we would have won best food, best theme, best dessert, or most spirit.

But we still won – our members learned to sing their way through a challenge like weather and not let challenges stop them from having a good time. And they probably became better friends with each other along the way.

Never let a little rain stop you from doing good things!

Godspeed and Good-Bye to a 4-H Tech Club Friend

Brain Surgery & Digital Imaging Workshop at Tech Club

We are blessed when there are quiet heroes among us, who share their talents and raise the bar. This week, I had to say good-bye to a friend and his family with our 4-H Tech Club, Mark Keller. Mark is one of our club’s leaders, who will be moving with his engineering job later this summer.

Mark belongs to that category of quiet superhero – one of the good guys who comes up with outstanding ideas and then carries them from start to finish. He never sought the limelight but always undertook each task with thorough attention to detail, a wry sense of humor, and an abiding sense that as a youth leadership program, we balanced skill and character development. Mark’s years of work as a youth leader at his church gave him perspective and experience as a 4-H leader.

When our club had a planning meeting last fall, Mark suggested we try a hands-on approach to rockets. We had had workshops in past years on the physics behind rockets, rocket building 101, and advanced rocket skills. He wanted us to try having the club buy and each member of the club build a rocket during a meeting to launch at a later meeting.

As a leader, I’ve sometimes encountered creative people who come up with ideas, start them, but don’t finish them. Not so with Mark. We scheduled his rocket workshops, and Mark planned them with impeccable detail, researching and purchasing rockets that would meet our needs to be built in a 1-hour workshop. Then Mark led 22 kids, from ages 3rd to 12th grades, through the building of rockets. At a later meeting, when we launched, Mark again assumed quiet leadership and handled all the details.

Mark did an equally outstanding job at leading physics workshops for the club…whether it was a workshop on Mobius Strips where he incorporated the steps of the scientific method and illustrated industrial applications for them or a magnetic physics experiment where he had members work through each of the steps, log their results, ask questions, and then reach conclusions. Not only did he present excellent information, but he did so in an engaging manner that held everyone’s interest. He also found a neurosurgeon (who happened to be a former rocket scientist) who gave our club a workshop on how digital imaging is used in brain surgery to save lives.

Mark’s leadership skills show equally in his family. His son, a budding programming guru, has designed websites for non-profits, created Visual Basic databases, and created his own blogging application which rivals WordPress in usability – and has served this year as our club’s secretary. His daughter, a club recreation leader, has arrived at each meeting prepared with recreation, willing to share her ideas. She’s always been a great sport who keeps focus, even when the occasional middle school boy tries to get her attention by pestering her, never complaining and staying on the task at hand.

The youth and other leaders in our Tech Club will continue to seek to find new ways we can use technology better. Even so, technology doesn’t replace great people. We hope to carry on from the lessons Mark has taught us and live up to the example he set.

Thanks to the whole Keller family, and Godspeed in your journey. You will be missed and will always have a special place in our Tecchie hearts.

 

 

Gardening Lessons

Today’s the day my kids’ small garden gets judged in a countywide 4-H contest. They have participated in this contest the past 5 years, won it once and won reserve champion last year. Because we’re urban gardeners, we only enter the small garden division because we just don’t have the space to be competitive in the large division. We have a larger garden on the other side of our double lot backyard, but our neighbor’s shade trees reduce its food production.

This is not going to be a winning year. Our only shot at being competitive is that perhaps the other entries have struggled through the wet spring like we did. In early spring, during record floods and rainfall, our back yard looked like a lake. On the day of the worst rain, the entire yard was underwater except the high spot where my daughter keeps her backyard chickens. I began searching for a temporary home if we had to evacuate them.

2010 Garden Entry, Reserve Champion Winner

The water receded. Slowly, the ground dried enough to be tilled. We cleared it one Sunday evening in anticipation of its being ready to till Monday morning. That night, another 2 inches of rain fell. A week later, the garden was finally tilled, and we raced to plant. A few days after that, we were able to plant the large garden as well. We barely got it planted when the rain began again.

The garden survived. Normally, the week before our contest judging, the kids prepare the garden to ensure everything is mulched, weeds are gone, and all is well tended. Last week, during a hard rain, water briefly stood in the entire garden again. They couldn’t get into it because their weight would compact the soil. Yesterday, it was borderline dry, and they did what they could.

2008 Small Garden Contest Entry

Later today, a judge will arrive to inspect the garden and ask questions. It won’t be our best year.

The best prize we’ll get this year is in character development. When circumstances are tough, don’t quit. Make the best of what you have and work as much as you can. And in the words of every farmer since time began, remember…

There’s always next year. We can try again.

A Sew Sew Blog (or Death by Needlepoint)

Me-maw's sewing patternsphoto © 2010 Jamie | more info (via: Wylio)
I hate needles. Not the shot kind, but the sewing kind. When I was a kid, we had a Buttoneer, so I never had to sew on a button. I’m so bad at alterations, even with scotch tape and duck tape, that God gave me a mother-in-law who is a professional seamstress.

I took shop instead of home economics and have never sewn anything or learned how. I’m so bad at sewing that my children knew it the moment they were born. As soon as they could talk, if a sock got a hole or a knee needed patching, they put the mending back and brought it out when Grandma came for a visit.

I thought I had it made. Until my daughter inherited her grandma’s passion to sew. Fine and dandy at first – Grandma gave her sewing lessons, and I didn’t even have to look at the sewing machine I inherited from my great-aunt.

Grandma was a perfectionist with a lifetime of tailoring experience – she willingly shared her expertise. And she controlled herself pretty well when my son decided to slide coins into her backstitcher like a piggy bank – we were saved when Richard took it apart and removed all the money – and it still worked afterwards.

My daughter took the sewing project through 4-H. But I got too comfortable in my nest of mediocrity…

The first problem was when I made the mistake of taking my daughter shopping a few years ago for a supplies. She wanted to make a Christmas tree skirt. Patterns scare me. The list of materials required can give me hives. Nevertheless, I gritted my teeth, asked the help of our sales clerk, and got all the notions and stuff to go with the skirt. By the time we bought all the tassles and beads, it cost almost $100. Oh well.

Then Grandma saw the pattern and supplies. A week at a time, I began to realize what a bad job I had done of selecting a pattern with my daughter. The tree skirt was 6 feet in diameter, with a radius of 3 feet. Each section had hand embroidery and beading on it. Then, after it was pieced together, a bottom layer was created to contrast with it. Then it had to be hand quilted. Finally, tassles were put on it.

That tree skirt probably took 75 to 100 hours to complete in time for 4-H fair entry. By the last 40 hours, it was most definitely not a labor of love. She did finish the skirt, it won champion, and then it won special merit at the State Fair.

The only problem is the skirt’s too big. So it sits in storage, waiting for my daughter to one day have a living room large enough for her giant, beautiful tree skirt.

The saga was so unpleasant that my daughter quit sewing for 4 years. This year, she decided to try again – to sew her spring formal.

Once again, I ventured to the fabric store with her. The helpful clerk translated the notions on the pattern. Only later have I learned that we bought Brand V patterns, which may say easy but are hard. And that dress that looks so pretty on the front of the pattern has a complex pattern of pleats, combined with boning and completed with a full lining underneath.

This time, a friend offered to help my daughter make the dress.  She said nothing of how hard the pattern was; I didn’t discover until I saw them working through a sew day.

Thanks to my friend and mother-in-law, who have filled in my sew sew gap. You have given my daughter skills I could never teach her. Her formal is beautiful, thanks to the skills you have given her which I obviously lack.

As of my second strike, I’m officially retiring from the pattern shopping business. 

Life’s too short for a death by needlepoint.

How to Succeed Without Being an Expert

physics for kids: powerful rocket engines on a windy day may not be a good ideaphoto © 2010 woodleywonderworks | more info (via: Wylio)

You don’t have to be an all-around top-notch expert to be successful….if you work with talented, smart people.

Last night at 4-H Tech Club, I was reminded of this.  At this year’s planning meeting, Mark, another leader, suggested we do a hands-on rockets workshop. In the past, we had done workshops on building  rockets and the physics behind them. He suggested a different approach: get a simple rocket for each kid in the club and have each of them build it together. Then at the next meeting, launch them. Then, every kid in the club will have experienced a build and a launch.

Sounded good to me.

One challenge though. I’m an organizer but know nothing about how to build a rocket. And I surely didn’t know how to help 20+ kids, from grades 3 through 12, all build rockets at the same time. Others would need to carry the ball.

Success lesson 1: find smart people who work hard

Mark researched how and what types of rockets to buy. He figured out the best options.

Success lesson 2: don’t micromanage those smart people

Throughout the process, Mark asked for input at key points.

Success lesson 3: careful money management lets you experiment

Our 4-H Tech Club has been careful with every dime of its 3 year existence.  The members are frugal with their dues.  Last year, when we accepted donations from sponsors, we designated them to go towards education. Those donations paid for last night’s rockets. 

Success lesson 4: ask for help when needed

Mark said we needed to find adult team leaders to break the club into smaller groups. So I put out the word to our parents and leaders and said a quiet prayer we would get the help we needed.  The night of the workshop, we divided 20+ kids in 5 small groups.  The club’s top officers, all teens, registered members as they came in, assigned them to groups, and gave them rocket kits.

Each group had an adult team leader and a teen assistant. Our adult helpers included our county’s rockets superintendent, along with a web designer, software programmer, accountant, engineering professor, and middle school math teacher with an engineering background.

Success lesson 5: thank those involved

Last night, twenty members, from ages 9 to 16, built 20 rockets in 2 hours.

This is my thank you

  • to Mark for having a vision and making it a success,
  • to the other leaders and parents who encouraged and helped as needed, and
  • to our members for being a great team.

I’m looking forward to next month’s rocket launch!

Last night’s roll call question for members was where they would like to venture in a rocket. Answers included New Zealand, Pluto, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn. I hope we help our members realize that they can build their dreams, launch their rockets, and go after their dreams.
