Working with the 4H

I hope to shortly post or add to this post, photos from last night's 4H class where we had 29 students! The two hour START class lasted a little longer (added 30-40 minutes) from sheer numbers but this bright group of young women painted their little hearts out from 6:30-9 pm as part of a 4H sponsored event!
We were at MacNairs Country Acres  a beautiful horse facility in south Raleigh where this energetic 4H horse club is home stationed! So stay tuned for some guessed it....HORSE PORTRAITS!
