Cathy, please don't take this personally at all, but our house rules for internet friends include not giving where we live. I think it is probably okay to say the team has been to or is looking at going to Kansas City, Milwaukee, Houston, and Denver competitions... they expect to go to two of them.

I am so excited about this, especially for this ds. I think he would be awesome as an engineer as a career, but he doesn't know if he would want to do that. I'm hoping he will see a lot of the aspects of the field (even if he is concentrating on the electronics part, he should get a good look at several other areas, I think) and get a feel for what it would really be like.

No, more than that, I am delighted that he has a strong interest in something. I've always thought it doesn't matter to much *what* you are into as long as you are into something.

And on the practical side, I've got to think of a few dinners that a couple of dozen kids will like (I'm hoping they don't eat pizza twice a week, so I want something else ... parents take turns providing dinner on Saturdays during the build season, and a light lunch or snack or something, I'm unclear, on the weekday meetings). I expect I'll get involved more than that, but that is all I'm committed to so far.
