Academy Otherwise

Well, for obvious reasons, court at Aecademy kind of overshadowed the rest of the event for a while there. But even before court it was a really great event.

After conceiving of the braies & hosen class probably a year and a half ago, it was nice to finally be able to TEACH it! We had some really good discussions of all kinds of unnapans and various theories thereof.

We tried really hard to pick classes that Shoshanna could enjoy at the event – she’s old enough now that she can go to adult classes as long as we’re there to direct her when she gets antsy and if we’re willing to bow out if it gets too crazy with her there. So I took her to Alheydis’ class on 14th century paper boxes, which we both really enjoyed.

In the afternoon we managed to all three go to not one but two lecture-style classes! Alicia’s class on Galileo finished with everyone playing with her Gallileoscooe and then Shoshanna INSISTED on going to Fridrikr’s class on Viking Zombies. Apparently her love of all things Vikng outweied her antipathy towards anything scary. There were a couple of points when she clapped my hands over her ears (at one point Fridrikr noticed and asked if he’d said something inappropriate and I had to explain that no, she’d just decided something completely innocuous was scary). But she’s been telling us about draugurr ever since.

I’m on the “reserve list” to teach my hosen class at C3R on the 28th… if you’re interested, even if I don’t end up stepping into a slot, find me and I’ll be happy to let you have a handout!
