Odyssey of the Mind kim

Here is Pickles...can you tell how happy he is?? Their team has competed for 5 years, and this was their second time to compete in States...Last time was 3 years ago...And they came in 16th place...These kids work so hard and this time they finally placed 2nd!! First and Second go to world finals, which this year is in Michigan.
This is where they are all taking a bow!
Pickles is the vehicle engineer, he designed, built and ran the vehicle!

Pickles (who is super clumsy normally) made me break into a sweat, with his jumping over his vehicle and running around...and notice when he takes the last run around the back of the set...behind the far back was to pull his pants up...he forgot a belt that day:)
Some may not think that is such a big deal...(that he ran behind something to pull them up) BUT normally he would just let his butt crack hang out with loose pants....we're taking baby steps ;) hehe
