Saturday my eldest child (Alexander) turned 10 (and I turned 35).
Sunday Alex and Mackenzie (my 8-year-old daughter) played in their first D&D game. Granted that it was 4E, but everyone has to start somewhere. The two of them and a bunch of their friends sat down and played. Alex played a dragonborn paladin named Dorax; Mackenzie played a human cleric (her "normal" character is a halfling rogue) named Hewoman; their friend Daniel played a dwarf fighter named Dwarf Man; and Daniel's brother played an eladrin wizard named Warlock. Their friend Derrik (who will "normally" play the human cleric) was at a football game and couldn't make it. I ran the game (right out of the 4E starter box). I guess the kids want me to run every Saturday afternoon for them. We'll see how that goes.
Monday was Labor Day. My friend Brian emailed me a 30-day renewal for Warcraft. Damn him! I was almost free from my near crack-like addiction to WoW. Guess it'll have to wait another month. ;-)
Wednesday (today) is the first day of school in this neck of the woods and 3/4 of the kids went to school this morning (Alex, Mackenzie, and my 4-year-old Samantha). Oh how glorious it is to have the house back and silence reigns. Now if I could only get my remote to work on my wife,
