Thursday: Sweet 16 Birthday and NACLO

Today is Brooke’s birthday.  Today she is 16.  Whoo-Hoo!

So, what is she doing to celebrate?  She’s taking a test.  Today is also the opening round of the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad.  Competitors will spend three hours today working on 3-5 tricky puzzles featuring a combination of linguistics, logic and programming skills.  Top scorers will be invited to an invitational round in March where members of the national team will be selected for the international competition in Slovenia this year.

We’re headed down to Princeton with two of her friends (and competition) for the first round and having a birthday breakfast at PJ’s.

Wish her luck!

Seems like yesterday we were all rushing to the hospital to see the first grandchild of my parents, first son for my sister (she’s since gotten 2 more) first nephew for me ( I’ve since gotten 3 more). Congratulations to you too, RD, proud mom, no doubt.
