Full Hearts ♥♥ :: Post III

Alex loves robotics. Eli loves robotics. Our family loves robotics.

I love Alex. I love that he designed a mini-bot, and I love that when the rules changed, he adapted his design and started over. I love Eli, and James, William, Nathan, and Geoff. They have been building, mentoring, assisting, testing, and re-building a robot that weighs less than four pounds, and is capable of raising itself up a ten foot pole fast! Rumor has it that it clocks in somewhere around... never mind... you gotta see it to believe it! ahem.

I love that back in the school metal shop, FIRST 2102 Team Paradox is test driving a completed robot. Spectacular work. Incredible timing. And this was accomplished while sharing with and manufacturing for our Team San Diego friends, FIRST 3128, the Aluminum Narwhals. Go Build! I love that this year's Parrot-Ox plushies are actually an adorable shoulder bag, and that new shirts and bandannas are looking good... team art, designed and built in house! Go Marketing! Outreach and Corporate too! They keep everything moving forward, and strengthening the future for their team. Go Robotics!

I love that we live in a community with so many talented, industrious, bright, enthused children, and adults. I love that we all get to work, and laugh, and dance, and stay up late together.

Oh, I do love this! There need to be more opportunities for more children and adults to collaborate on doing things they love.

Okay. You three. You three are AWESOME!
I mean, this is well established, but your comments reaffirmed my high opinion of you all!
