Sean's new school

We were having trouble with Sean's behavior at Tavan so we withdrew him. We were able to get him enrolled at Griffith in the Balsz District. To my surprise (not really) Sean has not been suspended once and is doing a lot better, Thank You Ms. Koebler his new Kindergarten teacher. She knows what it takes to handle difficult kids. He is not perfect but he is doing better under her teaching. He is making me proud and it shows that it just take understanding to work with my child and not suspending him for being a child.

Another trip up North

After many years of not being able to go anywhere my small family, my mother-in-law, father-in-law and my nephew Andrew went to visit a family fiend up in Ashfork, AZ. We stayed 3 days walked through Williams, AZ and visited the Deer Farm. I shot a jack rabbit, saw elk, deer, cantaloupe in the wild and watched a grown man walk around drunk and with piss all over him. On the way home we stopped in Camp Verde and visited Montezuma's castle. Here are some of the pictures that were taken.

My jack rabbit and I, yes I used my Ruger 10/22 bullpup.

The friend of the families house

Us at the Deer Farm feeding and petting the animals including reindeer not just the fallow deer.
Andrew kept having the same Fallow deer follow him everywhere trying to get his cups of feed.
Sean was afraid to hand feed them.

Truck Fire In Dreamy Draw Park

On Sunday my wife Jamie, my son Sean and I went to Bookman's to sell somethings so we can get new things. On the way home going east on Northern ave. I saw black smoke and decided to go see what it was. It turned out to be a small size pickup truck in an arroyo inside the Dreamy Draw Park completely up in flames. The Phoenix Fire Department (station 17) took about 20 minutes to respond, luckily the flames did not spread to any plants. I decided to record the fire and the Phoenix Fire Department with my Droid 2 Global phone.

2010 Arizona Renaissance Festival

After a few years of not being able to go to the Renaissance festival my wife, her family and I went. We stopped at one of many show that went on during that day. It was a fire whip show I was a little disappointed that the fire whip was only used for like three minutes or so. It was funny none the less and the man that preformed in the show is Adam Winrich a world champion whip cracker. He hold 7 or 8 Guinness world records for whip cracking. I videoed taped the show and due to youtubes limit on video times here are the videos.

I took Pictures as I went but they were of nothing important so all I have is the Fire whip show.

My nephew Daniels R/C A10 crash

Here is a short clip of my nephew Daniel's flying his A10 R/C airplane on a windy day. Lets just say Daniel and my brother Robert who also flew his R/C airplane today crashed his (I don't think this plan was well thought out.... Master) were second guessing themselves on if they should fly them today. I did not get Robert's crash on camera sorry. To see the full video I took of Daniel's flight you can view it here.
