There's nothing like getting something you really really want after working really really hard for it! (see proud brother Isaac looking on - sorry I didn't get him in the photo better...)
Ashton's already built several different robots with the set (one that senses colors, one that shoots balls...seriously cool stuff) and all the kids have been totally engrossed in watching him work. He's been very generous to involve his siblings (while being very protective of every little piece - amazing how well you take care of things you really feel ownership of). I'm amazed at the complex electronic things this kid of mine can somehow figure out how to build. He's definitely got a big piece of his dad's engineering prowess in him.
We're all so excited and happy for Ashton.
