Very Proud

I am a proud papa, but im also very proud of some of my other kids, no mom not like that! grab a perrier and sit back down. Im talking about my students in my broadcast journalism class. Its taken alot to get them to where they are now, but I am proud to say that they are really starting to take flight and the political team headed up by a very talented student blew my socks off with the package that they put together when we were at the Clinton/Obama Debate. I have to share.

On akello, he's getting better. we were fortunate to have grandma pearl come down to take of him while theresa ran the school. our goal is to have him fever free come monday

sick with the strep

dang, poor akello couldnt knock his fever so theresa took him in, turns out that he has strep throat! poor little guy! so sad. He's got an upbeat attitude about him though and with hes raspy voice sounds like an old sailor who's smoked all his life.

So while covering the debate with some of my students ...Out pops George Lopez who was pimping for Obama. He came in from the civilian entrance and threw everyone off. The team got some great footage of him and even got in a question or two before Entertainment tonight and all the power players hoarded in. Of course he had some funny answers but he was well versed on the issues. Here he is fishing for a joke ...said something along the lines of and im paraphrasing...listen, im darker than obama so whats your point!

Akello tests out the latest addition from homeland security

So part of getting our house liscenced for use as a home school we needed to gate off the air conditioning unit in the backyard. I was really not looking forward to putting up a fence. i was all set to do it a month or two ago, but then it got cold and rainy so i put it on hold. Then grandpa Ted said that he saw this "instant gate" at the base in kileen. so we drove up there to check it out. and im GLAD we did! Ted even bought it for us as their contribution to the school. its just stakes and sections. i had this put up in minutes. im going to buy more and replace the "highway safety" gates in the back as well

Akello does his own stunts


So akello was donning this cute "i do my own stunts shirt" for Lara's birthday celebration. Paloma was schooling akello on the fine art of frosting the cake.

akello was more concerned about the frosting than the art.

akello loved hanging out with the boys! eating hot wings and sippin brew. i put akello down to sleep in the third quarter. We taught him Cheers. Now he wont stop trying to "cheers" my coffee cup in the morning.

Whenever i was warming up some food in the microwave, it dinged and akello threw his arms up in delight and yelled, "ready!"
