Bridge Builders

William and Andrew participated this year in our Holy Family Homeschoolers Bridge Building Competition.

Together with Dad, William and Andrew engineered a popsicle-stick bridge in an attempt to win the prize for the strongest bridge.  The competition was stiff and the contestants were many. William and Andrew placed high in the ranks and went home with certificates of achievement and great enthusiasm for next year's competition.
