Absence, Congrats, and Break a Leg

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I've been really busy with some family things:
  • My son participates in a First Lego League team, which I coach. First Lego League is a program where a team of kids builds a robot using Lego Mindstorms to accomplish a series of missions. They also have to do a project related to the theme for the year. This year's theme is energy conservation and alternative energy use. The tournament was last weekend and I'm thrilled to say that their team, the Sorcerers of Science, won the Team Spirit award. They're a great team and they really earned the cool Lego trophy. Congratulations to the Sorcerers of Science!
  • The other thing that's been keeping us busy is that my son is playing the title role in the musical Oliver, based on Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, at the Oregon Ridge Dinner Theatre. Nick and I have been helping with the lighting and sound crew so we've all been busy with rehearsals. Opening night is tonight and I want to wish all the cast and crew, but especially my son, a great opening night. Break a leg!

I hope to start posting reviews again over the next couple of days. And, of course, it's less than two weeks until the Cybils winners are announced!
