St. Patrick's Day Parade and Science Olympiad

Saturday March 12
Today I volunteered at the regional Science Olympiad competition.  The task I got to judge and supervise was the, "Mission Possible" challenge, where high school kids got to design a device where you drop a coin onto a mousetrap and then do all kinds of neat things and at the end, release a balloon!  It was really neat to see all the designs and teamwork with the kids.
After SO, Greg and the girls met me at the school and we all went downtown for the St. Patrick's Day Parade.  We got there late, but still got to see some of the people marching.  We also walked around the park a bit and rode the carousel horses.
After enjoying the park, we walked over to RPS and watched the An Daire Academy of Irish Dance Dancers.  We are thinking of enrolling the girls in classes.  It is something that I always wanted to do, and they really seemed to enjoy watching it... We'll see!
