    I find this funny because we have a couple of clover patches in the backyard and two or three times last week I looked through them for four leaf clovers.”No luck though”

    I’ve always searched high and low but never found one then a friend of mine out in Hawaii tells me it grows there – google tells me he wasn’t janking my chain – imagine how upset and excited I was all at the same time. Needless to say it is the reason I need to go to Hawaii!

    Shane you’re such a big kid!! That’s funny you ask that question, Bailey was out yesterday at the ball fields looking for one. I remember spending most of our recesses looking for 4 leaf clovers. I don’t remember ever finding one though.

    I used to look for four leaf clovers when I was a kid and when my kids were younger I had them look with me. Now none of us bother. Does that mean I’m getting old???

    Yes, I do I do not recall ever finding one, but my uncle has found one for each of all the kids, I have them in there baby books.

    Funny, I just introduced my girls to the “Four-Leaf Clover” song this morning.

    I looked when I was a kid. I am not sure if I ever found one. Probably not, but I seem to remember trying to convince myself otherwise . . . .

    Ahh, hope springs eternal.

    Yes, but don’t recall ever finding one.

    I used to look and I still do. While sitting in grass, I can’t help it.

    I have found them before. It takes an incredible amount of time though….I used to find them as a teenager when working at summer camp. We spent a lot of time sitting on the recreation field for various programs and once you have that much time to sit there and look (plus often 100 plus kids sitting there idly running their fingers through the grass) it’s inevitable that someone would find one.

    The key though is NOT to pick it! The kids there would always pick them because they’d get excited, but then you’re decreasing the odds of their being another one in the future. The more 4-leaf clovers are in the field, the more chance they’ll mix and spread.

    It would be like removing every redhead from the world. If we did that, eventually we’d have none. 😦

    We would tell the kids to make a wish and leave it alone.

    I never knew that Jen.

  11. Since I was about seven years old, my favorite number has been 8 because one day I found 8 four-leaf clovers.

    (I hope I did not eradicate them from Union City, CA! Oops!)
