HQ's first robotics competition

From March this year, HQ attends Robotics class in school for 2 hours every Saturday. He loves this class from the start :-). For this school holidays, the school organised a Robotics competition and HQ was one of the 7-year-old chosen to compete.

The competition was a grueling 3-hour event for 3 continuous days. HQ came home exhausted and hungry everyday. He even took afternoon naps (which he never does anymore since he's 3 unless he's really knackered)!  

On the second day of the competition, he developed a nasty fever. Bummer! We told him that it's alright if he wants to stay home and not continue with the competition. But he wanted to attend so we let him after a dose of Paracetamol. 

We were already happy that this event had already done good to him; as an eye-opener and a beneficial holiday programme - cut down his TV time by 3 hours a day at least! Ha!

After the third day of competition, HQ came back with a throphy recognizing his outstanding performance. We knew this meant a lot to him, and we're really happy for him. We hope he will continue loving his Robotics classes :-).

Congrats to HQ. I like such events because its not academic n kids tend to think "out of the box", problem-solves which is more practical.
