Persistence

On Easter, we had an egg drop. Just 6 or so feet, but it's still surprisingly difficult to protect the egg. David and Luke had eggs that survived, Emmett and I broke ours. Emmett kept at it with two more designs but both failed.

This morning, he started making egg-protection-devices again. After losing an egg in the first and then dropping one egg on the floor during construction (difficult for all of us), he finally executed a design that kept his egg safe. He was thrilled. I'm glad he kept at it, and glad I put up with the mess long enough for him to succeed. He's already talking about how he saved 1 of 5 eggs, and next year he's going to try to save all 5.

And for lunch? Emmett ate his egg.
