    Tears in Rain

    Psalm 45:1

    "My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer."

    Galatians 2:20

    I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Some Quick Highlights of Summer 2007

    Let's see...

    Well, honestly not much happened this year but I'll do my best to jot down what I think is most memorable ;)

    1. The Blog Phenomenon!
    Who do I have to blame for getting me hooked on blogging? Brooke, was it you?
    I think the only reason I got started was because I was lead to the HBF... No wait! I know, I got myself started but I wasn't really bloging I was just show casing my graphics on Blogspot and that's were John told me about HBF! So it's Johns fault!

    Thanks John for getting me started! ;)

    2.Graphics:
    As you may all may already know, I'm a graphic artist! A pretty good one if I may so boldly say but I'll let you decide ;) I've done quite a few graphics over the summer; exploring new realms of abstract, creating amazing subject footage including my best of yet "Nenaglarelendil," web design and redesign, and hopefully much more to come!

    3. Boy Scouts
    I'm a Boy Scout of America. Summer camp this year was exiting and although every year before seemed somewhat the same, this year turned out to be quite fresh and exciting!
    I was recently elected the Senior Patrol leader (highest leadership position ) for the next six months, I put together this quarters video slide show, and we just had our semi-annual planning meeting for next years events.

    4.La Madeleine
    I am an honest employ set at an honest pay at a La Madeleine Bistro and Cafe'/Bakery!
    Not my choice of vocation but it's my bread and butter for now. I have to say I was extremely fortunate to of had the training before hand not offered to anyone else applying as of now meaning to say I am now a trainee...

    More Highlights to come

    Okay, where was I?

    O Yea!

    5. Hearing from Darby!
    I must say it was quite a highlight for me to hear from such a good friend :)
    It was a most pleasant and unexpected surprise. I hope everyone will get to meet her someday :)

    6.My Book 500 GB External Hard Drive!
    I recently purchased a 500 GB External Hard Drive and for those of you who don't realize how extremely huge that is think of storing up to 100,000 songs of about 4 min in length!
    500 BILLION Bytes!!! I'll never run out of space again!

    ...

    Not! I'll probably be buying another by the time Christmas rolls in...

    7. Goodness! Is it possible I did or experienced at least ten memorable things?
    Rowan was born! That is most defiantly a highlight for me! I am so glad he is finally here!

    8. I am on the road and dangerous!
    I have a driving license and a car! that's pretty cool! I've been cruising for six months now!!!

    9. Cinenosin Film Academy
    I am part of a fresh, new film academy making an effort to reach homeschooling high school students across the nation. I can't wait till the San Antonio Film Festival!!!

    10. I got my Wisdom Teeth Removed!!!
    Yea...

    I wouldn't really consider that a huge highlight considering I got sick at the same time of recovery but I guess it's the thought that I won't have to do it again EVER again that makes it worth remembering...

    Well, there you have it! Ten things I found most memorable of Summer 2007... If I left anything out of significants it wasn't anything personal... Please remind me!

    O! Here is a bonus!

    Spending some AWESOME quality time at the Boriacks!!! I shared some moments there most memorable...

    Should I go into detail?

    Maybe next time...

    THREE HUNDRED!!!

    THIS... IS... SPARTA!!!

    BRAVE HEART!!!

    FREEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM!!!

    For an Irish to speak to his equal he is forced to speak to the almighty...

    HE HE...

    Oooo

    Good times... Good times :)

    Look out school year! Here I come!

    Hasta Luego

    Rob W. Oakley said...

    No problem ;)

    I think most of us want to come...

    But I am not sure at the moment...

    I know Dad and I are most defiantly coming and I really want Ryan to come too, but like I said I am not sure. It just depends on everyone's schedule.

    See you Oct.!

    ~Rob

    Kakiedoo said...

    So is everybody still ill in your family Robby? I hope its not another virus about to go through everybodys familys. The Adams are ill to so I'm beggining to wonder.

    Kakiedoo

    Rob W. Oakley said...

    Well, everyone here still kind of has a cough but besides that I'd say everyone here is feeling a lot better!

    We'll just have to avoid each other for awhile that's all ;)

    ~Rob

    darby said...

    Well hey I guess you gave me your sickness over the computer because I am horribly sick now. Jk. Although I do feel really bad. I just have a cold and fever but I rarely get sick and when I do its pretty bad. So.. just hoping I get well before next week cause I am going to Michigan!! Yay! And then I don't think my next trip is to Oct. I wonder what it could be..... Darby

    Kakiedoo said...

    Robby you should put that army pic of Missy on the HBF blog so that everyone can see it.

    Kakiedoo

    Rob W. Oakley said...

    O goodness! Darby, It must of been when I sneezed all over my keyboard!
    Sorry! ;) Have fun in Michigan! and don't tell me you've forgotten about the film festival! ;) O! it was really cool today at the film academy! We got to use a REALLY nice Cannon XL 2 and some great lighing fixtures to shoot our first draft of the Cinenosin Trailer...
    I would say our first couple of takes were pretty bad but these things don't happen over night.

    Your friend,

    ~Rob

    O! Kakiedoo, I'll post that pic pronto!

    Kakiedoo said...

    Sounds cool. Hey when does everybody get back from Summit? I miss them. But I like hanging out with yall too. :D See you in Oct. Guess what? In Oct we also have a DANCE!! Hooray. I am trying to convince our caller to have a ball but no dice. :( Hey I can still pray about coming to yours right? :D ttyl, darby

    Rob W. Oakley said...

    Yo Darby! Whatdaup?

    O... Sorry... I just got back from work and they use a lot of slang in the prep area and what not...

    *Cough, wheeze*

    I think everyone gets back this Sunday... But I wouldn't expect them to be blogging as much as they did in the past (you know with school and all...)

    I miss them too; however, I am very fortune to have you and the Watkins (what's left of them) to keep me company.

    DACE??? In Oct!?!?!?! MOM! I'm going to Virginia!

    Recently the "Conroe Dancers" Changed their name and location...

    It's the "St David's Ballroom Dancers" or St Dave's Dancers"
    LOL I think that will catch on but it is going to drive everyone crazy!

    ...

    St Dave...

    No disrespect but I can just see these things coming...

    Anyway, they also changed location
    from Conroe to Magnolia which, unfortunately, isn't that much different travel wise...

    The next dance is the Saturday AFTER Thanksgiving...

    I think I am going to protest!

    It's a great event and all but think of all the families who will be traveling!

    And think of you!

    I'll be praying too ;)

    We may not know what the future holds but at least we know who holds the future ;)

    Take care!

    ~Rob

    Kakiedoo said...

    Umm...actually they changed the dance practice to a Salem Lutheran building in Tomball, its really nice for us, because its in walking distance from us:) But the ball is going to be in Magnolia. Is Tomball any better than Magnolia for yall? And also I heard that the next dance practice was in September and one in October and none in November and then the Ball in December?
