My son is wearing the bright green wig in the back of this picture. His robotics team has been working for the last 13 years to earn the blue banner. Finally, all of their hard work and dedication paid off. Not only did they come in first place, but they got the Engineering Award for the most community outreach. That earned them $5000 which they will need because now they are qualified for the world championships in St. Louis on April 27.
In a few weeks they have another competition in Denver, near where my parents live and the National championships are near where my daughter lives. I wish I had a zillion dollars so I could take off work and travel with them. Would love to see my parents and daughter.
