Jackson's Robotics Competition

This year, Jackson has been involved in a Robotics club through 4H. It's technically called "First Lego League." He knew a couple kids on the team, and our friend, Rose is one of the coaches. It has been an amazing experience.  It's a nice group of kids and he's learning so much and having fun while doing it. A 7th grader has been teaching him how to program the Robot, they play capture the flag halfway through the practice and there's even some cute girls on the team. So what's not to love? He's had quite a few practices over the Christmas Break to prepare for their meet (it was on January 9th) and he was always so eager to go!  Anyway, he had his first competition last Saturday. He told me he was super nervous! He told me his toes were tingling. His team did awesome! They took the grand prize out of the 10 teams that were there. We were so excited! He will go to a state competition in February! Congrats to Jackson and his team! Special thanks to his amazing coaches!
