Here's another video of my good friends, Heather Coleman and Travis Lawrence. I think Heather wrote this song for them to sing together (I think that's how the song came about)...

Tenth Avenue North

One of my favorite new bands is Tenth Avenue North. Just about every song on their album, "Over and Underneath," rocks. Their lyrics are thoughtful, deep, and sound. If you haven't listened to them yet, check them out! If you want to buy their stuff, do it from get a bonus song and this music video included with the regular cd and digital booklet.

I'm Famous

Well, not really. I just found out my picture was in the local paper. :) The other day, as I was meeting with a few friends over coffee, a reporter came up to ask some questions about the WiFi service. Next thing you know, our pictures are in paper and a little story about local WiFi hotspots.

So, if you want to read more about it, you can read the whole article here.

Christians in Iraq

Interesting article on CNN's website about Christians struggling in Iraq. If you have time, read the whole article, it's not that long.

Here is one paragraph:

A week ago, leaflets were distributed in several predominantly Christian neighborhoods, threatening families to "either convert to Islam or pay the jizyah or leave the city or face death," said the Interior Ministry official.

Doesn't seem like any of those are great options....

7 Kids...WHAT??!!!

Monday night Me Wifey and I, along with our 3 girls went to stay at a town about 45 minutes away so our friends could go to Dallas for the rest of Monday night through Tuesday evening.

Our friends have 4 kids. So, for most of Tuesday, we had 7! It was exhausting, but a bunch of fun too.

Around 10:30 Monday night, their youngest woke up screaming for his mommy (he wasn't all that happy to find that she had left and we were all he had). After SCREAMING for about 30-45 minutes, we finally laid him on the couch and he settled down...but didn't go to sleep.

He wasn't settled unless I was sitting on the recliner next to the couch. I would whisper to him that I was there each time he would start to get upset and that seemed to settle him somewhat. This went on until at least 3:00 am.

Then, I woke up a little after 7:00 and looked over at the stairs to see the other 6 children sitting on the bottom few steps looking at me! Who knows how long they had been sitting there quietly, probably wondering, "who is this guy and why is he sleeping there?"

After a run to Starbucks, Dani and I woke up a bit and ended up having a blast with all the kiddos. However, I definitely don't want 7 kids on a regular basis! :)

Now, I'm a little on the exhausted side.
