Hurray for Summer Camp! Tomorrow, MrBeans starts two weeks of instructing future engineers at Lego Robotics Camp! He loves robotics and insisted that I make him a custom embroidered polo for his first day of camp. It’s a lot of fun when you can customize almost anything! Today, he picked up a plain black polo shirt at Kohl’s, ($10 Kohl’s cash=free polo) and I spent about 30 minutes making his new favorite polo!
Funny story: One year, MrBeans got a good friend to help him with camp. After a long day of young children, Legos, and programming, they indulged in all-you-can-eat wings at a local establishment. After a couple dozen too many hot wings, the friend’s wife had a difficult time waking him up off the couch and into bed later that evening. He yelled absurdities (in his sleep) at her: “The robots can stand on their own!” and “Don’t tell me what to do!” Moral of the story: Don’t mix robots and hot wings.
I like custom embroidering “serious” things too. Before Lauren moves away to Chicago next week, she asked me to monogram pillow cases for her. She picked out the set of sheets, then just dropped the pillow cases off at my house. An hour later, they’re beautifully personalized!
MrBeans says I’m very creative; I tell him it’s not me, it’s the robots.
