I’ll tell you one thing, between the orange hats and the camo shirts: our team was impossible to miss.
The team did a great job on Saturday. Sadly, they did not win any awards, but one of the core values of First Lego League is: What we discover is more important than what we win. That’s a tough thing to get your head around when you spend as many hours as this group of kids did preparing for Saturday, but they did us proud, and that’s the important thing.
I spent all of Sunday curled up on the couch with my computer and/or my knitting, doing my best impression of a slug. And have spent today trying to catch up on mailing books and quilting quilts. Catching up on my Christmas journal hasn’t made it to the top of the list yet.
Fantastic. And can I say I’m a little surprised to see so many girls? Happily of course.
There were actually FIVE girls on the team. Unfortunately, one young lady had been sick on Friday, and came to the competition, but about 10 minutes after we arrived it was apparent that she shouldn’t be there and we sent her home with her dad. Good thing, too, because apparently she did actually “get sick” on the drive home….
I wondered how the hats would be worn when you sent the pic of the pile of hats. How cute they look on everone’s head. This is a great picture.
Love the ORANGE. The kids look like first place to me.
Those look terrific! Stylin’
