Since starting Southwest Rick has only been home MAYBE one day a weekend, IF we are lucky. Usually his trips start on a Thursday and end Monday or Tuesday. So, since he was here, we decided to do something totally fun. We rented a pontoon boat from the MWR facility over at mainside Pensacola. It was one of their brand new ones, lucky duckies. We just took it out to the sugar bowl which overlooks the Pensacola base and where the Blue Angels take off. The jellies were out in full force and prevented us from swimming. I'll use that as the excuse as to why I didn't get in the water. Really it's b/c mommy, can't swim until the water is warm enough to spawn hurricanes. Emma found her bodyweight in hermit crabs, Reece almost finished off a footlong chicken sub and Adeline commandeered the boat the first chance she got. I was the idiot that didn't put on sunscreen, and now my nose is paying the price. Overall a fantastic day and we ended it by having the Harris family and Baldwin's over for grilled chicken shrimp. YUM

Two hours after school this e-mail arrived in my inbox that went out to every parent of a child at St. Paul's!
---------- Forwarded message ----------From: Julie Butler <firstname.lastname@example.org>Date: May 7, 2008 3:13 PMSubject: CUPCAKESTo: Kim Jones <email@example.com>
Dear Parents of K through 2nd,
We would like to request that if you send a snack to the school to celebrate your child's birthday that the snack be the same for every child. If you are sending cupcakes, do not send them decorated differently for this creates friction between children. Also, do not send them with sharp objects either on or in the cupcakes (toothpicks). If icing is being used, please think of the mess they can potentially make and use colors that are white or light-colored.
Thank you for your cooperation.-- Julie Giovanini ButlerSt. Paul Catholic SchoolAdministrative Assistant
