Math/Science Olympiad

Ben was invited to participate in the Math/Science Olympiad at Davis High School.  Several 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students were selected to preform.  There were various events that they would compete in against other schools.  It was an all day event.

Ben took the bus, and I drove up to meet him, and bring some kids home.  As I was walking into the High School a young mom from Morgan and I were having a conversation.  As we entered the High School she said, "Wow, I haven't been to High School since 2000.  I grinned and said nothing as I thought to myself, if she only knew.  Yes, it's been awhile….a long while since I have been in High School.  

I am a bit of a people watcher.  As I observed the intensity of many young moms as their child participated I thought, "I'm fine being an older mom, and having life experiences teach me a thing or two." I do wish I had their energy.
