In case you were wondering, the boys did pretty well at their First Lego League robotics competition Saturday. The rankings I saw after the third round had them 6th out of 24 teams up through the ninth grade. They didn't get any penalties.
They were as young as kids are allowed to compete and had the fewest team members: two. A lot of people came over to watch since they are so young and didn't have any big kids to help them. No prizes this time though.
