Season hasn’t started yet. You haven’t even begun to get blown away by the time commitment. Every night for 6-8 weeks gets pretty old after a while, but it’s lots of fun and an amazing display of innovation by the kids. That’s the mind blowing part.

You’ll love the competitions. We made World’s by winning Rookie of the year and Engineering Inspiration Awards. 400 teams competing in an NFL stadium is really cool.

I even missed my 25th and 26th wedding anniversaries to go to World’s. (with the full support of my wife)

Oh, I know. We’ve been warned. I’m looking at all these weekend classes and volunteer days and ‘get-to-know-each-other’ parties as a warm up for January. Thankfully we do not live far from the college. It will make picking him up on those bitter cold nights so much more tolerable.

I guess our team made it to World’s the past two years, too, but I have no idea what to expect. I’m just so excited for him! He’s on his computer all the time trying to learn more about coding. He’s like a sponge and is just soaking it all in.

The six week build time ends right around my anniversary, too. I’m guessing the hubster and I will not be enjoying a peaceful evening out without the kids. Ha!
