Presidential honors

So, the reason we went to Washington DC last week is that my husband won a (very major) award for his robotics research, stemming from a grant he received from the National Science Foundation. He was honored alongside other young scholars at the White House, and the meeting included a photo opp with W himself.

Now, neither one of us voted for the guy and we have been less than thrilled with his policies, but the opportunity to meet with a sitting president was an honor nonetheless. (In the White House photo Jim is in the second row from the front, second from the right, wearing the purple tie.) In the photo at left, he's giving a brief talk about his work at the National Science Foundation. Congratulations, dear!

I was so pleased to be able to more easily spot Jim in the photo than W! Way to go with the power tie, Jim!
