We are BIG LEGO fans in this house. Used to be it was building things but over the past couple of years, that’s morphed into two of our girls being on their school’s robotics team which is under the First LEGO© League group. We’ve even had a few state championships and in January will be heading for another one with the hopes that we’ll get to Nationals!

LEGO© is a huge supporter of STEM initiatives and over the past few years have taken that show on the road. This year they’ll stop in Charlotte for three days of fun, creative, learning and I’m heading there with my LEGO© pro, another friend and her son and now you’ve got a chance to win two of your own tickets to join us during the opening ceremonies on Friday, February 19th!! Don’t feel like you have to go with us, but I’d love to meet up while we’re there – especially if we’ve never met in person!

Regardless if you win the tickets from me, this is a great family event that your kids will love. BUT! You must get your tickets early because it WILL sell out.
