Saturday activities

The results of our Scout outing Saturday morning:

I had meant to get a photo of the kids picking up trash, but I forgot about it until we were all leaving. There were 6 Scouts and 4 adults and we picked up at least 10 bags of trash. I never would have believed how much trash there was along the shore of the reservoir. We only did one section of the coast (we stopped where it got boggy and marshy).

Then Saturday afternoon, the kids worked on their costumes.  A decided to be the red Bionicle, because he thought it would look better with the red sword than the black Bionicle would (even though the black costume fit better).  M is being a ninja, complete with A's practice sword (M has misplaced his own).  I think we're going to work out a better face covering before Halloween night - this is a scarf that keeps falling off.

Oh, and behind the kids you can see my new van.  purty, isn't it?

Meanwhile D and his robotics team were on the other side of town for a tournament.  They spent most of the day flirting with the top 8 (out of 28), which go on to the semi-finals - and managed to squeak out 7th place.  But then in the semis they could use only their best robot driver and managed to make it into the finals.  They finished in 4th!  They won't go on to regionals, but they did quite well and came home with a nice plaque.  Lots better results than last year, when they finished 3rd from the bottom of the group.  Go Robotics team!
