The Minnesota State Fair begins next week, and that is a sign that summer soon will be wrapping up for all of us.
While summer is our busiest time in 4-H, I hope you have taken time when possible to connect with your family and friends, and enjoy the summer.
It is important for all of us to carve out time to take care of ourselves, whether through taking vacations or taking a day or two off to just be away from work. For me there is no greater gift than the giving of oneself in service to another. Yet, in order to maintain the ability to give, each of us must rest, release and rejuvenate.
So far, I have had a great summer. This Virginian looks forward to a few more “hot days” after the great Minnesota State Fair.
