And, therefore, it means I play "catch-up" with blogging. Here goes...
I never did blog about the regional ICTM math tournament a few months back. Never mind, though, because the team did well and got to go to the University of Illinois for the ICTM state tournament! This year, Thomas was on the calculator team, which made it to state. So, for the first time, we got to go to state with the team. It was pretty exciting--and I have the photos to prove it. :)
Thomas, ready for the day.
There were a lot of people there--both students and parents.
Thomas goes over the schedule.
(Most of) the team!
Waiting was really hard!
I don't think the following images get boring: they're of all the Alpha Omega students receiving their awards! Such a little team, and they did so well!
Now, here's a BIG DEAL photo. The calculator team made some mistakes, and didn't think they'd placed. At all. So when they were called for the Fifth Place award, they were shocked! Joel and Thomas went up together; Thomas just followed Joel right up on stage, then right down. I think he was thrilled to walk across that stage.
Yep--he was pretty excited.
Way to go, Thomas, and way to go, Alpha Omega!
