It was Nathan's weekend! πŸ’©⚜

This past weekend was jam packed full of activity.
 Nathan particiated in the First Lego League Championship and their πŸ’©SLUDGE BUDDYπŸ’© team won 3rd for the Programming Award. All the boys worked hard - in between the Tomfoolery during our meetings!
They also had two great coaches. I was one too, but more in the background and helping the boys putting together the boards.

Core values - very important in FLL!

3rd place in Programming!

The Gmen came to support their little brother, pretty easy since it was at UMBC and Gman2 had spent the night on Friday!

Then it was Scout time. 
His "Old Goat" den did a skit with the parents acting as their arms, but they didn't know they were going to be in the front until we set it up... fun!

Awe, from a Tiger Scout to Arrow of Light.

Proud family

For all their hard work as den leaders, the den gave them a gift card and I stitched this up and made a card for them. 

Finally, quiet time for stitching with my new favourite tshirt!
In that order works for me.

Looks like Nathan worked very hard - congratulations to him on his achievements! (and oh my, look at how he's grown up in the last year - such a difference!!)

Your tshirt motto is superb!
