I had a little bit of time on Saturday to whip up these blue string blocks. Kurt was nice enough to take Ryan to FAMAT so that I could stay home. These are 4.5 inch blocks with a 1.25 inch black strip in the center. I really like the contrast that the black adds. It will look great with the pink scraps this month. Best of all, it is now time to put away the blue and pull out the new color! I made quite a large dent in the scraps, though there are still a few odds and ends to save for later.
It was great to enjoy a little bit of down time on Saturday, because Sunday was all about the Regional Tournament for Legos. We had one sick team member, and had to scramble things around a bit, but it was quite a fun day anyway.
And to top it all off, we earned a bid to the state tournament! So now we get to keep going and going all the way to March! We made it home in time to watch the half time show for the Superbowl and then everyone was asleep before the end of the third quarter. It seemed like a really exciting game, but we were all just really tired out! The next three weeks will be extra busy with science fair, but after that, maybe it will slow down again? Maybe:)
