As the past year as rolled out in front of us, G and S have begun proper lessons in geekery and have shown their likes and dislikes, and their geek personality types have revealed themselves. This has been an absolute hoot to watch. They both enjoy playing simple games together like Zombie Dice and Angry Birds. G is the shyer of the two and is more deliberate in her game style. S, on the other hand, is a bulldozer and so far enjoys a more "hack and slash" game style. They're also beginning to delve some into comics but at this time haven't shown much preference as to characters or storylines; it's all good at this point.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to take them to events and places both local and regional. Honestly, I think we learn just as much as they do (I know I do), and these shorter trips serve as our family vacation experiences. Thankfully we've not turned into the Griswolds on the road just yet. I'll be breaking down the past year's (and beyond) experiences into several parts by theme, then going forward will strive to blog more immediately after the event.
First up, Comics and Superheroes!
