Mustang Island

The boys loved this vacation and wanted to come back soon.

Sookie was very happy digging in the sand.

Here was an unexpectedly great place to take children. Unlike Goose Island which was great for fishing but had no beach, the sand was lovely, replete with sea shells, plus the ocean was shallow with minimum waves. In summer the water is bathtub warm, however was quite cold in March. This did not stop the boys from swimming.

Almost St. Patty's Day

Sadly the charity luncheons have ended for the season. However, the last one is our favorite because it is so close to St. Patrick's Day which means there is lots of Irish coffee to be had. We are now on to the plant sale and the shop hop, both of which I'll miss this years because I'll be on a cruise. Snorkling, oh boy!!

Rick mentioned that Jessi signs off her e-mails from school with a note telling what book she is reading. He thought that was pretentious, but Jessi pointed out that it was a good way to encourage reading and since she is an English teacher that it was quite appropriate. I sort of like the idea my self so:

I am reading The Adoration of Jenna Fox

St. Patty's Day, Almost

Sadly, the charity luncheons for this season have drawn to a close. We all made the most of the last one which is my favorite because it's always near St. Patrick's Day and that means lots of Irish coffee.

Yesterday, Rick mentioned that Jessi always closes her e-mails with a note telling what book she is reading. He thought that was pretentious
