First Lego League

Robots are cool! This weekend, Yellow Hair along with the rest of her robotics team, "The Electro-Bots", competed in a competition with 43 other schools as part of the First Lego League. The First Lego League introduces children around the world to the fun and experience of solving real-world problems by applying math, science, and technology. The Electro-Bots did well taking first place in the teamwork portion of the competition. They have already begun designing their robot for next year's competition with their sights set on taking the overall first place trophy.

Georgia Aquarium

After Christmas, the Pohick Gang drove to Atlanta, GA and visited the Georgia Aquarium. The aquarium was pretty awesome and well worth the drive. The Georgia Aquarium, located in Atlanta, Georgia at Pemberton Place, is billed as the "world's largest aquarium" with more than 8.1 million US gallons (30,662 m³; 30,661,835 liters) of marine and fresh water housing more than 100,000 animals of 500 different species. To see a few more pictures from this adventure, check out this link.

Great Granny Pohick

The Pohick gang had a great Christmas this year. Jake's mother squeaky visited. We also had a visit from Molly's sister JD and Great Granny Pohick.
