Odyssey of the Mind {State Competition}

Yesterday's Odyssey of the Mind state competition was amazing.
Our team overcame a lot of adversity.  The team realized the team device was not working when they pulled it out of the vehicle at state finals.  They worked hard as a team to get it to work, and were finally successful at getting the "emails" to travel through the team created email server and spam filter.
The did a great job, performed well {even with a few hitches},
earned a 2nd place medal {woooohoooo}
and the opportunity to compete at Worlds in Michigan in May.
This was my favorite team yet.  What an amazing group of dedicated, kind, creative, thoughtful, hardworking, bright sixth graders! 
I am particularly fond of one bunny.  Trevor, I am so proud, so proud, of you.  Thank you for allowing me the privilege of experiencing this incredible "odyssey" with you.
