Science Olympiad

Congratulations to Alec!  He just called from the university where his high school is competing in the Science Olympiad.  He's been working hard, for the third year in a row, on building and flying rubber-band powered helicopters, answering all kinds of physics questions, and building mechanical robot arms..

I couldn't hear him very well for all the squealing and cheers, but there was something about "took first place in the state," and "going to nationals," and "Orlando."  

I love seeing my children involved where they can really excel.  It makes it even more worthwhile when others realize how great my kids are.  <smile>  But the best part, at the end of the brief phone call, was when he said, "I love you, Mom."

I don't get that very often from my teenagers.  That makes it all the sweeter.

I love you too, buddy.  And how are you getting to Florida?
