Spring break was really weird this year, with all 3 kids having their breaks at different times:
- first Ben, home from Case Westen, pretty much chillin’ in front of the Wii and enjoying being waited on hand and foot
- then Andrew, doing the same, except substituting the xBox 360 for the Wii – fortunately we found a new one driving home past Zilker park one evening, purchased off the side of the road from a painter who was needign gas money to get himself back home to Colorado after a job here went bust
- finally Lauren, week 3, who was focused on getting her act together for her MCAT test and lining up things for her Teach for America application.
But, we did manage to get an evening of great music in at the Mohawk Patio, catching both the Ettes and the Hold Steady, plus 2 other acts. A pretty terrific deal at $20 for the cover charge. We love SXSW!
