We had a long, eventful, FUN day at the Lego League competition today!! All three teams did really well, with each excelling in different areas. The coaches did a great job keeping track of kids and getting everyone where they need to be at the right times. No small task!! We were complimented by many for bringing so many teams. There were no awards this year, but the missions worked, the projects were done, and the tears were minimal. (Tears are somewhat unavoidable at high-stress, loud, busy scenes like this when you have kids as young as 4th grade.) Lex’s team really meshed well and he’s already talking about next year. Eve’s team (my team) did not mesh as well and she has been saying all along that she won’t do it again, but today the language changed to “If I do it next year…” We are considering making one of the teams all girls next year. I think that would be fantastic and we already have a lot of girls in the pipeline! We’ll see. For now, here are some pictures, then a wrap-up team party next week, a debrief coaches meeting sometime soon, then we put FLL to bed for the season. Next season’s theme — life in outer space!!
