Tough Night

got robot? had a tough night Saturday. Sometimes we forget the little things. We get comfortable and take shortcuts. Eventually the shortcuts become routine and before we know it we've forgotten the details--all the really small stuff that can make or break you when push comes to shove.

We got lucky though. We found out before it was too late. By running competition simulations of the table run--actually leaving the room, setting up within a time constraint, remembering to double check everything before we arrive at the competition table we rediscovered all the important little details that can make the difference between a lousy score and one worthy of a high five. 

Hmmmm, kinda like life in the grown up world. 

I'm proud of these kids. They're going to do great things. Experiences like this will take them far in life.
