Math Camp Ends

 Kurt did morning drop off today.  Isn't he sweet?  So I spent the morning piecing the borders for Jamestown Landing.  It all needs a good ironing.  Maybe I'll see if there is a good movie recorded and spend some quality time with the iron.
The afternoon was taken up with closing ceremonies for Math Camp.  Guess who the grand champion was for the Mathcounts competition?  Here is Ryan with his first place trophy!  He was pretty excited.  I know it is hard to tell from the picture, but this is Ryan's super ecstatic face.  I was almost laughing out loud when he answered a question about the area of a triangle and then explained to his competitor how he got the right answer, his little hands were making all of these angles in the air as be walked her through the computations.   So I'm pretty sure he'll join the math team next year, and hopefully robotics as well.  I think he is looking forward to middle school at this point.

Congratulations to Ryan! Good luck to him in middle school! Hope he enjoys robotics... I couldn't get my uber-geek introvert teen to join either the computer club or robotics - all he wanted was anime club.

Jamestown Landing is *gorgeous*! LOVE those greens!

Looking forward to seeing Jamestown Landing finished. It is such a nice design.

Ryan will probably grow up to be an engineer. He seems to already have all of the makings, the demeanour and the mannerisms down pat!

Jamestown Landing is so pretty..I think I like it better in green than blue! Also reminds me of all of Bonnie's Ireland photos!
