Thought this was worth passing on...draw your own conclusions...

This is a must view.  It is about 13 minutes long so view it when you have the time.

Subject: Obama Video

Jason Mitchell is a local Raleigh filmmaker and friend of mine. He and his firm produced the short film that you will find attached. Whether you agree with his position or not I think you will find it interesting and well done.  View it and pass it along as you see fit.  


The link above is an excellent new video about presidential candidate Barack Obama. We're trying to spread the word on YouTube like we have on Eyeblast.tv, which has already gotten over 400,000 views in the past 2 weeks. If you find this video useful, please help get the word out and forward it to as many people as you possibly can. Key figures have told us that this video has the potential to really change things, if we can get enough people to watch it. Thanks for your help.

Back to work after baby– how do you know when you're ready?

I've been remiss to post again, I know. Work has been busy, blah, blah, blah. Here's a couple of pictures of the kids and out new dog, Sadie.

Sadie's a good dog, if just a bit annoying. We got her from Wayside Waifs, a local animal rescue shelter. She has a tendency to wander off, but she's pretty calm and good with the kids.

I'll bug Currie to take some more pictures this weekend, which I'll neglect to post for another several weeks.

Well, we got a couple of pictures of the kids taken at a hoyty-toyty photography shop. THEY.ARE.AMAZING. And really expensive. We actually got a free sitting a 8x10 as a promotion through a children's store, otherwise we wouldn't even have been able to afford that. If you interested, and have some cash laying around that you didn't get a chance to burn, here's the link. The name you need to enter is Currie Jackson.

Dad's Night

I got the chance to go to a Father's night at Rylie's preschool the other night. It was really pretty fun. Her teacher (Ms. Leek) and the teacher's assistant (also named Ms. Leek) were very nice and took us through an abbreviated day to show us all the stuff they do.

Everyone has one of a series of jobs every day. For example there's the weather person, whose job it is to look out the window and tell everyone what the weather is. And the flag person who holds the American flag while they sing a little Pledge-of-Allegiance-like song. There's also a calendar person, wand person (line leader), caboose (line ender), ect. Everyday they rotate so they have always have a new job.

The Spanish teacher showed us how they learn Spanish words using songs. Rylie still refuses to demonstrate her command of the Spanish language, but I know she knows it. I've seen her point out her ojos and el estomacho.

They also had an short Physical Ed class, strangely named MIF (movement is fun). They stretch and balance and chase balloons around the room. It was pretty cute to see 15 four year olds chasing balloons around a church banquet room.

The last thing we did was go back upstairs to their class and look at cards they made us. Each child drew a picture of their father on the front of their card and answered a few questions on the inside (Ms. Leek and Ms. Leek wrote down their answers). Ms. Leek read the cards and the dad's took turns trying to figure out which one was theirs. A teacher reading Rylie's words in front of a group of her classmate's parents: what could possibly go wrong?

This weekend marked the 6th anniversary of our marriage. Suzie, our regular babysitter, picked up the kids in the Saturday morning and took them to see Nemo on Ice. Ted and Sheri took them for the rest of the day and overnight. We thus had one of the rarest occurrences in our marriage, particularly in the last four years: a day to ourselves without the kids.

We went to breakfast with all my inlaws: Ted, Sheri, Brice, and Jodi. Afterwards, Currie and I attempted to walk off our egg and sausage induced stupor with some light shopping, followed by a drink at on the patio of a Plaza restaurant. It was there that we learned a new equation:

freetime + no childrearing responsibility + beautiful spring day + one day after payday + well stocked bar = a vanishing afternoon.

Who would have thought?

We rolled ourselves out of there hours later into the worst possible situation: my judgment was impaired, she was fueled by premium liquor, and we were standing in the retail epicenter of the Midwest. Before I knew it we were bouncing from store to store, starting fitting rooms, finding coordinating accessories, salespeople fluttered around us like flies on a carcass.

Once I was completely shell shocked and she was beautifully adorned, we retired to comfort of a nap. We woke up after dark, already late for our evening plans.

We met up with some friends for the fashion show of a local clothing company. I was very fun, if not the most romantic evening ever envisioned. We followed up with a couple drinks and snacks at our favorite pub with some friends and a new acquaintance Rob. He runs Justice for Children International, so the night was kind of a downer once I asked him about work.

We ended up home, safe and sound, missing our kids around midnight.

Weather... it's all I can think of to write about.

Spring is springing slowly around here. The kids get a day or two out in the yard to enjoy the sun, but it's quickly followed by cold, rain and/or snow. This weekend looks like it'll be in the 50's and 60's.

Here are a couple of pictures from the other night to get you through the weekend.

Catching up

Hey- how have you been. I know it's been a long time, and I haven't returned any of your messages, and things ended abruptly and everything. But listen, I thought we could catch up. I could show you a bunch of pictures of what's been going on around here, and you could promise not to avoid me anymore. No, no. I don't blame you at all. I would have avoided me too.

anywho, here's a peace offering in the form of a photoset. It's just a couple of snapshots that I took since the last time we chatted. Why you're looking it over, I'll try to think up some things to say and we can pick up right where we left off.

I know that I haven't updated the site in a while and I'm sorry. I hate it when sites never update and you just go there day after day, bring up the same old non-updated site, SCREAM EXPLATIVES AT THE SCREEN, and glare at your co-workers when they look at you over the cube wall.

Anyho. The excuse is that iPhoto is freaking out, and I haven't had a chance to fix it. I know you just come here for the pic's and I have this weird thing about disappointing people, so I've just been avoiding the whole thing altogether. Hopefully, I'll find a chance to get everything fixed soon and you'll see some more of what you love.

Parker's Party

Parker had a birthday and corresponding party the other day. A good time was had by all, especially him. We braved near record snowfall to eat at the glorious Rainforest Cafe, where Parker amused himself by touching the boobs (his word) of the animatronic apes. Sadly, no pictures of that, but some of him opening presents:

I also have a few miscellaneous pictures of the kids, Bethany's kids, and some schmuck my wife had to go to a party with. Highlights include Rylie's new pink boots and Parker rockin the 'too cool for you' pose with the guitar and glasses.
