Tim and his fellow Odyssey of the Mind teammates, Anjelica, Ian, Rowan, Elizabeth and Sarah brought home a Second Place Trophy and the coveted Renatra Fusca Creativity award for their Mousemobile problem solution at Odyssey World Finals at the University of Maryland this past weekend.

We are so very proud of them and all of their hard work!

Here is a video of their award winning performance (note their 28 mousetrap powered vehicle).

Last August we picked up our baby goats from 4footers Homstead in Jericho,VT. We got them as pets and lawnmowers. Seems that we were ahead of our time. Recently, Google announced that it had brought in herds of goats to mow the lawn at their California headquarters. Now, in today’s paper, the State of Maryland highway department is using goats to mow the lawn on the sides of the highway where there are endangered turtles living. Here’s a link to the article.

Perhaps we need to think about renting out our goats.
