It's a lonely ol' Saturday night for Mom! Brett and the kids are in Grapevine for a pinball convention, and at last report, they're having a blast!
They left the house at 7 this morning, and I'm sure they've played a ridiculous number of pinball and video game machines by now. Ryan ran into a friend from school, Brett was enjoying the piped-in '80s music, and Katie entered the kids' tournament. Brett's former roommate went with them, too, and I'm sure they've all played their hearts out on the more than 100 games, all set on "free play."
While they were going nuts on the machines, I was going cross-eyed judging at the UIL district academic meet, and then I was waiting for my two students' results. (Both advanced to regionals in feature writing! YIPPEE!!!)
Brett forgot to take the camera to the convention, which is so disappointing. I would LOVE to see the kids in that environment, and I can't imagine the craziness of that convention hall. Instead, I'll look forward to hearing the full report when they get home late tonight.
