Today was the first day I met with Lonnie Horlacher, who is my “boss” for this project with the 4-H students of Canyonview MiddleSchool, here in Cedar City. We met at one o’clock at the 4-H base on Main Street. It was a brief meeting, and very successful. I brought a copy of my project proposal, one for him and one for me. We went through the proposal, and he exclaimed that he would love for me to teach his 4-H kids. We pulled out a calendar and set the date, time, and place for each lesson. We settled on the month of February for the project: the 4
. We scheduled another appointment for the following week, January 30
, where I would be present with copies of the lesson plans that I would be teaching.

Today I went magazine hunting! I spent 3 hours meandering around Cedar City, knocking on doors, introducing my project, and myself and asking if they would like to contribute with any magazines that they were willing to part with. Though it was quite chilly, the hunt was very successful, and I cam away with a fair amount of magazines that the kids could use! I am getting more excited as the first day I will be teaching gets closer!

I met with Lonnie today! I showed him my lesson plans, and hethought that the students would love the lessons! I also had a PowerPoint ready to show him, just to make sure that he approved of the items within it to teach the kids. He said that the PowerPoint was creativeand the kids would love it. I am very encouraged and looking forward to the time when I get to actually meet and teach the 4-H kids.
