my son is never home and this is why

he is a freshman in high school and is on the robotics team this year.  They are working on a robot and it is due on Tuesday.  Since they are all over achievers, they have built TWO robots for the first time this year and for the first time have painted and added lights and horns (we are Vikings) and this is the best looking robot they have ever made.  I just hope it actually works :)

They have a practice match this Saturday so get to try out both robots.  Their first real competition isn't until March, but they are way ahead of schedule.  Makes sense because I haven't seen him since September.  He is at school until 8pm most days of the week and from 9am til about 10 pm weekends.  Plus, he keeps straight A's and is in the Jazz band, honor band, county band and any other band he can find that will let him play with them!  No wonder he is tired all of the time!  At least I know he isn't goofing off.

Teenagers love to burn the candle at both ends and then start a third burn in the middle.
