They won.

I am not back yet. But I had to brag about my girl. She is on the robotics team at school. They competed this weekend at Regional and WON! Her robotics team has about 40 kids on it and my daughter is one of the drivers. One of 2. :o) So she is part 'pit crew'. She is also the first girl driver they have ever had. And they WON!!! Can you tell I 'm proud?!



I love this picture, it is of her , her 2 metals around her neck and leaning on the robot. I will probaby have this one framed. The team, Blue Cheese, 1086 is going to the World competition in April. I am so proud of her I have been crying for 3 days.

I know you are on a break, but I hope you see this! I am coming to the shop on Thursday afternoon! I have to go get a birth certificate and was glad to see that you are in the same shopping center! Maybe I'll see you there. :)
