This last weekend we drove down to see Mark and enjoy Cedarville’s Homecoming.
All the freshmen engineers had a cardboard boat project. They were to design a boat and build it using provided cardboard and tape. Their grade would be determined, in part, if they made it across the lake or not.
Mark’s team worked hard. Their boat was not the fastest, but it made it across the lake with very little damage.
A few teams ended up taking a cool swim to the finish line.
Mark was disappointed that his team did not place high enough to be in the water fight after the race. However, he was excited when his professor saw his boat, liked the design, and asked if he could put it on display in the engineering building for the next year.
Mark had homework, but joined us as often as he could over the weekend. We enjoyed a few concerts, watched a movie outside, went to a parade –collected lots of candy– and just spent time together.
It was great to see Mark and meet some of his friends. He enjoys school and the opportunities to learn a lot!
