Sandy Is Going To His First Ever Drone Racing Tournament

I am so blessed with having perfect children! I love them soooo much! Emily is a straight A student and Sandy is an incredibly talented boy with so many interests. His latest one is definitely drone racing. At first, I was positive he was just kidding when he said that people use these tiny planes to race. Later on, I was shocked to see that’s a fully fledged sport. I could not even imagine something like that coming to life back when I was his age… But then again, those were completely different times.

Now that we got him one suitable for racing (I think it’s one of those Walkera models but I am not 100% sure) he cannot be separated from it. If he’s not in school, then he’s in the backyard mounting obstacles and training. He’s obsessed with it. On a bright side, before introducing him to drones, he was in love with Minecraft and was playing it 24/7. So, needless to say, I am happy to finally have him play outside and not on that damn PC.

The amount of happiness in his facial expression when he told me that was indescribable. He was ecstatic! He begged me to pay the entry fee ($20) and promised he’ll win one of the first 3 spots that bring small prizes such as a new drone, VR racing headset, and whatnot. I just hope he manages to fulfill his promise otherwise I can already tell he’s going to be miserable. But still, considering he’s been training a lot during the last month or so, it would be surprising if he doesn’t come out victorious!
