School Begins Again

School has begun once again, and once again we must figure out when some short sessions will be possible.  M daughter is now in second grade, and she reads avidly.  She really likes a series of books called Rainbow Magic by Daisy Meadows.  This summer she has already read portions of "The Hobbit" and another book called something like "City of Ember" which was also a movie some time ago.

My son begun Kindergarten today, and because the school he attends has an accelerated curriculum, I fully expect him to be reading moderately well by year's end.  I really believe this will make gaming this coming year much more enjoyable for all, because the rules will begin to be something they can learn on their own instead of having to be explained by me in each instance.

Anyhow, busy last few weeks otherwise as we squeezed in a visit to Las Vegas to meet with grandparents and aunts and uncles.  The kids did so well on drive to and from vacation (15 hours each way), and we had a lot of fun.  I even got a chance to see Penn & Teller at the Rio... my first Vegas Show.
