I Got A New Little Brother!

His name is Duke LeRoy Selis. LeRoy means "The King"!

Duke hadn't opened his eyes yet. If he did, my sweatshirt might have made him dizzy!

Stella hogged him all to herself for the first hour we were there!

I finally got to hold him but Stella started crying 15 seconds later because she wanted him back!

Here's a video of me and Stella meeting Duke for the first time.

Happy Birthday, Sean!

Sam's good buddy Sean made the most of his birthday by celebrating with not just a sleepover, but a TWO-NIGHTER at Champoeg State Park! It may not look it, but these kids get wiser with every year!

Back From Outdoor School

Sam's dear ol' dad couldn't be more proud of his boy. According to his teacher, Sam was one of the most decorated students of the week. He was also voted the best friend to the most students in is class. All tallied, Sam was awarded the honor of planting a tree in front of 200 fellow Outdoor Schoolers, counselors and teachers during the end of the week ceremony. What an honor it must have been. And what an honor to call him my boy.

Twelve Years On

12 years old. Where does the time go? Luckily, it goes in pictures. Pictures of a life well-lived. A life lived on happy, playful terms.

The quality of this video, however, is not quite the high quality of Sam's life. So, watch it in the small box for best picture. Don't expand it or it will get all fuzzy. Fuzzy like Sam's daddy's head the morning after Sam's sleepover birthday party. Enjoy.

Spring Break Rocks!

My dad and other mother took me and my little sister to Florida to visit Grandpa Chuck and Grandma Diane for Spring Break. They've got an awesome swimming pool and a big ol' boat. We're having a blast. Actually, I just saw a lizard in the backyard. How bout that? As long as it's not an alligator! Oh, we took the boat to the Gulf of Mexico the other day and saw a bunch of dolphins. My dad, of course, had his camera out and got a couple pictures. I'll post a bunch of the shots he's been taking for you now.

This is me getting ready to show my sister how to do an epic cannonball.


My dad calls this Phi Samma Jamma.

I got a little up close and personal with a sandcrab.

Here's me with the entire Gulf of Mexico all to myself. Pretty epic, too.

My dad made me take this picture because he says I'm handsome. I tell him he gets one chance. It's not so bad.

Here's that dolphin I was tellin' you about.

This is the other mother's nephew, Michael. He's a freshman at University of Tampa and he came down to visit us for the Easter weekend. Michael is really cool. He's stays up really really late and then doesn't get up til like 11 in the morning. A couple of weeks ago he was walking home from a party and he and his two friends tried to take a short cut through a pretty rough neighborhood. Well, that was a big mistake. They got held up by a group of guys with guns! One of his friends ran and the bad guys took a couple shots at him! Thankfully, they missed. Poor Michael had to hand over his wallet and his iphone! I asked him about it about a hundred times. I just couldn't imagine it. Michael said he didn't care about handing over his stuff. He just wanted out alive. He said he's never gonna take that shortcut again.

That's all for now.

This is the worst day ever. I think I've thrown up 25 times today. I hate throwing up more than anything. My dad, of course, took a picture of me on the floor in my misery.

Say Cheese!

This was my first ever school photo. This is the face I made when the photographer told me to smile. My dad cracks up every time he pulls it out of his wallet.
