Future Problem Solvers go to State!

My oldest cherub's  "Future Problem Solvers" team from school qualified for state competition in Austin, Texas this weekend! 

Future Problem Solvers was not around when I was in school.

If it had been, I most certainly would not have been in it.

I'm not "future" or "solver" enough to handle such responsibility or the competition!

Maybe it was around and I just didn't know about it!

I'm certain it wasn't!

Wanna see pictures?


This is my cherub's team:
Andrew, Jackson, Dalton, and Carolyn



Fun in the pool after morning competition.



Riding the elevator at the hotel . . .
all the way to the 9th floor! 
There's a story!



The both 6th grade teams and two alternates
AND their families at dinner Friday night
before competition!  All 30 of us having
dinner together!  That was fun!



Sunday at the award's ceremony . . .
waiting to see if their names are called to
go to internationl competiton!
Our fingers are crossed!


Didn't see them?  Maybe you need to scroll down a little more.

What?  Still can't see them?

Yeah -- I can't see them either! 

THAT'S BECAUSE I WENT TO AN IMPORTANT COMPETION WITH MY SON AND FORGOT THE DANG CAMERA!!!! 

MOTHER OF THE YEAR AWARD, RIGHT HERE!!! 

PROBABLY THE ONLY TIME HE'LL EVER GO TO STATE AND I DON'T HAVE ONE PICTURE TO PROVE WE WERE THERE!!!! 

WAY TO GO!!!!!

Pictures or not, we had a great time together!  While my cherub's team didn't place for international competition, they did their best!  Just making it to state was a great experience and we are so proud of the work he and his team did to qualify!

PROMISE!
