We spent all day today at the local university for the regional STEM Fair.
To say Gloria was a nervous wreck this morning would be an understatement. She had discovered that I could not be present during the judges' interviews. She would be alone with her project and I had to wait in the auditorium.
Warning: grainy iPhone pictures ahead. My camera was at home...
|I can tell she is nervous. Her eyes are smiling. Plus, she's got her shoulders all hunched up.|
|Waiting to be dismissed for the interviews.|
|Interviews are over!|
|Much more relaxed.|
There were about 150 projects in the elementary division. It was really interesting to see them all. Of course, they all start to run together after seeing that many. And the high school projects? Totally over my head! Oh my goodness!
It was a long day. And the awards ceremony dragged on and on. And ON! Gloria didn't win an award, but she was still happy because just being there meant that she was already a winner.
But then, she's always a winner in my book!
