The Princess Guide: In Support of the 4-H Club Motto....

...  To make the Best Better....

When I looked at this picture, that's the absolute first thing that came to mind. What a hoot!  How many times have I struck this same pose to make that pledge that's still so dear to my heart.

We haven't been able to get the girls involved in 4-H yet, but I still hold out hope that they will be someday.  And I can't help but think my experiences in 4-H were just a few of the things that have made Team Tiara a possibility. 

Do you know the pledge?

"In support of the 4-H Club motto, 'To Make the Best Better,' I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalties, my hands to larger service for my club, my community, my country and my world." 

No, I don't get up every morning and say the pledge before I start my day (although the crowd I went to High School with probably thinks I do!)  BUT I do try to live my life by those same tenets. 

I think that's what the 3-Day community is all about -- making the best better.  Looking beyond ourselves to a greater loyalty.  Using our heads and hearts and hands to make a difference far beyond our own communities -- a difference that is impacting the world. 

How cool is that???

I've had this shirt for about three years!  I bought it at the New Balance outlet.  I'm headed there again today to look for shorts to wear under my sparkle skirt on the 3-Day!  Whoo-Hoo!
