There are a lot of good things to say about being involved in FIRST robotics. Among other things it makes winter fly by. Kickoff is just after New Years. Bag and Tag is in mid to late February, a time when I am capable of the delusion that spring like weather could happen any day. I mean, warm spells happen in February. Usually in odd Weather Bermuda Triangles such as Rapid City South Dakota, but still.
The robotics of course is not "done". We have a competition coming up soon, and I start the middle school spring robotics class shortly.
But all the kids, all the adults, probably even the robot are a little tired out. No robot stuff for a few days. I'm going to be out looking for that first robin, and for those first growing things poking up out of the snow.
