Congrats to the young ones!

On a side note, it's nice to see kids excel at something they worked hard to achieve, as opposed to the "token" awards given out freely to kids just for participating...sends a blurry message out to kids about hard work being the key to success!

Are these your own kids or ones you work with?

Wow! Kids that obviously don't sit in front of the Nintendo all day long! I'm impressed!
(I need to show this to my 20 year old son!)

Well, they're kids I work with. I call them "my" kids I'm very proud of them.
