I also lost much of the Saturdays in February through May to the Saginaw Police Department's Citizens Police Academy. It's not an "academy" in terms of making us cops, more of a "Policework 101" class to let people know what they do. Lots of interesting material in there. I've complained about some of the trends in policing but I've got a good feeling about Saginaw's PD. They have a healthy respect for the issues and try to settle situations with minimal force. It was a lot of fun to try out some of the SWAT team weapons on the firing range.
Other highlights of the spring: Taking Jamie to the zoo, just the two of us. kd5mdk and jazz007 coming by for a visit and getting introduced to Chrononauts and Starfarers of Catan. Reading the Gettysburg Address to the children on Memorial Day and explaining why it's important.
The lowlight would be getting so sick last weekend that celticdragonfly and I had to cancel our 9th wedding anniversary trip. I'd set things up so we could have an overnight away from (all but one of) the kids. Hopefully we can try again in a month, that being when the schedule has an opening.
