So, I'm the Mom of a Ranatra Fusca

Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day with the OM tournament and Mom & Dad breezing into town for about 24 hours (more on that later). But in the midst of things, I managed to do a quick post on the tournament. I didn't go much in to the reason why they won the Ranatra Fusca which actually is a classification of water insects. The history of the name of the award has something to do with the team who solved the problem of floating across a pond with a water insect-like contraption, thus exhibiting extreme or unusual creativity.

Maria's team won the award for their props. For instance, the backdrop that Maria is standing in front of in the picture below was made out of food!

The challenge for them now is to keep the ants away till the state tournament on April 14!
