Today was day 1 of the ROV competition, in which I ran around setting up a poster display, printing documents on the floor of the lobby of the aquatic center, and trying to organize a presentation that completely rested on the knowledge of the other club members.
It went well though. Now, the communications portion of the competition is over, and the actual robots will perform tomorrow.
Somewhere along the line, as I frantically tried to keep track of all my paperwork, I became the “person who keeps track of everyone’s paperwork.”
At one point one of the club members, excited that I had the paperwork he needed, said, “wow Emily, thanks for being our….”
“Mom,” said another club member. Everyone laughed.
I felt very Wendy Darling.
