This Art is being Featured in The Group; Rainbow; RED all week .. link

Thank you for featuring this work in time for the 4th of July 2011!!

Even though this American Flag was on the back of the oposing team helmet. I had to shoot the photo because baseball is the #1 sport for some of the boys on my block!

They also know how to rock!

Yeah that’s right they have stayed in school!

Got good grades. Set good examples for the younger neighbor kids and have their own rock band which is really cool!

So, when they boys are all in town you’ll hear them playing for their family and friends.

No one around here will complain because it’s a win – win situation they know even when the kids have moved on.

They can still stop by and visit Coach or the Mrs. for a meal, or some advice if things are going a little wrong.

So, basically the point of this photo here!

Keep your kids involved in life, (sports or something they want to do. Maybe they’ll play the violin or drums or dance?) … Whatever “THEY CHOOSE” you’ll have them not too far from the straight and narrow path veer.

    A great bit of writing/advice to accompany your photo. And you guys in the U.S. sure do go bananas for sport! I do find it funny though how Soccer is given such a hard time :)

    Hey Samuel,

    Thanks! Hey checked out your photos LOVED! your colors! I’ll be ordering up a couple of your cards! They are the best! I actually have the most awesome bible verse ever for you! Ephesians 1:5 I’ll be using that specifically with the cards I ordered for my Ribbons of Hope project. I’ll keep you informed on how that is going or you can always check it out at http://www.ribbonsofhope.us Were up to some really exciting stuff so look out for some awesome things there in October. I’ll be 4 years out in Aug. this year and my son will be doing his 2nd annual Motocross ride for Breast Cancer the funds will be going to Breastlink.org and we are going to have a great time.

    Also, since you LOVE baseball!

    If you ever get a chance!!!!!! I see you’re in Northern, CA? or in NC? not sure? My neighbor boy is playing for Stanford Adam Gaylord. His younger brother is @ Cerritos College right now and his name is Brian Gaylord. So, they’ll be up and coming kids to watch!

    You have some great work here!

    If you’re going to be out in NC area anytime in the next year. It would be really cool to have you take a photo of someone really neat for me.

    So, you can let me know if you are traveling to that area and if it’s not out of the way it will be worth your while to stop in for a visit and a photo.

    I see you love golf and he lives right on one of the courses there.

    Have an awesome evening!

    Thanks! I’m so excited! We actually all pull the BBQ out in our neighborhood and share the food and spirit of our Freedom. Any past or current person who is serving in the military is honored and a moment of silence for all those still out ther and those whom have passed. Of course the kids tossed a few balls, including waterballoons and It was a wonderful day!

    God Bless the USA!

    Thanks for everyone who voted for me!
