No, I haven’t forgotten about this blog and I haven’t exactly had writer’s block either I’ve just had a crazy busy month with my nerd lessons! Ok, so they weren’t official nerd lessons, our family started a robot/engineering team with BEST!  So, with all of our nerd lessons, Me and my sister, Autumn, have decided the we 4 kids young adults, are not the K. kids young adults anymore, but, have now been dubbed The Gaggle of Geeks! Sounds pretty impressive huh? The competition was on November 8, and we started at the end of September so we didn’t have a whole lot of time to design and build a robot, design and build a booth, design and order t-shirts, write a technical notebook, make a 15 minute presentation, get sponsors, get publicity AND have it done before the competition. So the team met almost everyday (alot of nerd lessons huh?) to work on everything and thankfully we got done just in time (the night before the competition to be exact!)! And I’m happy to say we did really good and got 4th place!

Now, before any of you start thinking that I’m some robot/science genius I’ll just go ahead and tell ya, I can’t take credit for anything that has to do with the robot=( Actually I didn’t even touch the robot because if I did I probably would have ruined it;( So that’s why I was in the design and marketing group. I helped with designing our t-shirts, designing our booth, getting sponsors, getting publicity and all that good stuff. 

So, now that life is starting to get back to normal I should be getting this blog back in the blogging world full swing! But, before I sign out for the day here’s a few pictures of TREG.

These are from Mall day (a practice run at the mall). We actually won the Team Spirit and Sportsmanship award for the day!

Here’s our team cheering on our Phill-E (our robot)  and it’s driver for the round (the oneswith lime green do-rags and navy shirts are on the team)

The designing and marketing ladies taking a break from handing out brochures to pose for a picture.
