Monday Meal at Chef-son's
Can you notice anything different here? Zion is sitting up, eating solids, nothing new there. What about Kayla? Maybe by the end of this post you will figure it out.
Tuesday at the Red Barn
Mike started helping with the addition to the Red Barn, so I stopped by to get a photo.
This is where I found them, not working, eating! Do they look like they'd even been working? Look at those white trousers. You can't fool me!
Wednesday at Grace Village, Winona Lake, IN
I visited Dad in the Health Center and spent the night at Mother's.
Meanwhile Kayla passed the written test and now has permission to drive with an adult!
Thursday she drove with Grandpa all the way to Muncie and back! No wonder she had a headache the next day!
Friday at IRI
The Indiana Robotics Invitational is the largest FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) anywhere. Our team is so fortunate to have this opportunity right here in Indiana, only an hour away.
There were 78 teams representing 17 states, plus one from Canada.
The game this year is Breakaway, a type of soccer. Team 1720 or Phyxtgears chose to make theirs a tunnel bot, one small enough to go through the opening in the center of the section dividers. Its name is Palindrome because it was made to be able to shoot balls from both ends.
In this photo our little robot was performing as programmed, for the initial 15 seconds of autonomous mode, and made a goal. They were not so fortunate in the final scores of the two days, even so they are winners for all they learn through the experience.
Saturday, July 17--the long awaited RAIN, and I don't mean precipitation that might cool down our very hot summer (90's, even 100!), but the popular bicycle event--the Ride Across IN. Mike completed 127 of the 160 miles. Even the toughest riders had trouble due to the heat. He's home recuperating now.
