Beth has chosen a pirate theme for Colm's birthday party which is tomorrow.

We've been ramping up for this event for some time now...check out the invitation that Beth created. There will be six kids all told.

We got supplies a week ago and since then Beth has been masterminding the preparations, antiquing the invitations with candles and tea, planning the treasure hunt and the games, painting a parrot pinata, making hats and treasure chests, presiding over sword play practice, experimenting with eye patch designs, putting shovels in the kids' hands and urging them on to deeper depths of treasure hunting and generally communicating in that snarling dialect we fancy as pirate talk... too much fun really to reserve simply for a single day.

We looked at Colm at the dinner table tonight and realized this was the last time we'd ever see him at three years old...sigh...of course the facial hair painting doesn't help.

We checked with the office, but want to make sure we have the right email address.. The one they gave us is kevin.cahill@lagrande.k12.or.us. Can we reach you there? Or do you use a different address?

Argh- some of my favorite pirates are 3 years old! Give him a big hug for me. I've been a pirate for about 5 years, now. Welcome aboard, Colm!

I don't check that address very often from here and I can't respond from there either...potter or jones should be able to give you my fulbright address...I try not to disclose information on the blog that makes it easy for imperfect strangers to get involved in my or my family's life. of course if you want to post your email address here I'll contact you.

Hey Mr. Cahill, whats up?

We're just wondering if you've had any time to look over the questions that we sent you last week. Any kind of response that you could send us would be great. Sorry to nag, but we're on a deadline and hoping to publish this Friday. Thanks a ton!
