Long weekend.

Mostly a fun weekend, but the days were definitely not short. We BC types didn't get to see much of Dallas, finding we preferred to use our six or so hours outside the Dallas Convention Center for sleep.

Two sad items from Dallas—the Starbucks at the convention center is closed on weekends and holidays, which was a hardship for officials longing for their quad-shot lattes, and Tournament #3, the BC master computer, expired Sunday evening, leaving no electronic trace of Sunday's events, which will have to be reconstructed from the paper records. (We held a brief private memorial service on the BC platform.)

I found this and thought "How Cool"! I bought your Unschooling Handbook when it first came out. Little did I know we would share a love for what is not a commonly known sport...Fencing! My formerly unschooled son, Andrew, got into Fencing when he was homeschooled. At 14, he decided he wanted to go to actual high school. They had just started a Fencing team. Now there are tons here in Atlanta. Andrew is a senior and is Captain of his team.
Fencing is really, really cool.
There are pics of him at my blog. Is your daughter still Fencing? (Oh, and I know what you mean about not being able to watch your own kid Fence.)

I can't believe I waited this long to respond to your comment, which I read while I was still in Richmond, running yet another NAC. (And then there were the holidays, and things just got out of hand . . . )

What weapon does your son fence? My younger daughter still fences, of course—she's on the Temple team.—mg
