From the weekend before this last one. K’s in charge of the robotics club at school (the pirates in question) and mom, dad, and I were the field setters for their spring competition. It was a challenge, and quite exhausting, having to balance a ball on top of three others ten times every time you reset. Honestly, it wasn’t too terrible until after lunch – that’s when all the bending over and crawling around after stray balls got to be too much. But on the plus side, the pirates got the big trophy.
