I had a few more random photos to share from the summer, but not much to write about any of them.  So, this post will be bits of this and that.

For the second summer, two kids went to video game design camp for a week.  Over the course of the week, they learn to program the movement, characters, backgrounds, music, and other parts of a simple video game.  My guys usually make 2-3 in a week, with 10-15 levels per game.  It was interesting to see their game thought development from last summer to this.

When we started unpacking, our oldest presented me with a box to throw away.  I couldn’t figure it out at first, but it turns out these are his participation trophies.  It’s a rather ridiculous number, I think.  He kept a few that he’d earned for winning something specific, but didn’t feel the need anymore for the clutter of the participation ones.
