Father's Day 2010 was a success. Special thanks to Kim for make it all happen and calling my family for a nice dinner. She even gave me some art supplies so I can begin this journey of dream-chasing and creating something new. Even though it was a day for fathers it seemed like the newest edition to the family got all the attention (5month old Jacolby Streeter). He's a little bundle of smiles and slobber. I really enjoyed celebrating with my little brother Colby on his 1st Father's Day. I missed my big brother Miya being there, but we'll be able to hang out soon enough. thanks for the ton of text messages I woke up to. My sons are funny though. My 14yr old didn't come in until 5pm from playing outside to acknowledge me. My 15yr old needed to be reminded to acknowledge me. My 17yr old sent a text rather than a call. I hope this is just a dumb teen thing. I tried not to take it personal. Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed my day and my family. Thanks Kim, Mom, and Nikki for making it happen. Love you all.

Mini Me

I just wanted to take a moment and acknowledge my 14yr son. He did exceptional 8th grade year. He took honor classes, had an A-B average, played basketball and baseball, and prides hisself on bing a "ladies man". (He has 'McLovin' written on his wall in his room. In the picture above I was taking him to the 8th grade end of year dance. I watched him get ready, spied on him while he practiced his danc moves and facial expressions. He reminds me of myself in so many ways. I think he's more cocky than I was whn I was in the 8th grade. So with all that, I want to give a big shout out to my youngest son Tyrell Bailey for all of his successes and accomplishments.

Computers 4 kids turned out to be a great success. I was able to purchase 4 mini laptops for Asheville's youth. There were over 30 kids that sent essays to my PO Box that addressed issued in their community and how they would like to make helo make things better. Although all essays were amazing, 4 of them stood out and stuck with me. Congratulations to Stephen, Brandon, Dominuque, and Monique for touching me with their wonderful essays. You have truly inspired and motivated me. I am looking to begin another movement that focuses on "Stopping the Violence" amongst our youth. Last but not least I would like to thank everyone for their support. Thank you to all those that came to my parties, donated money to for the computers, and the members of Tried Stone Missionary Baptist Church. I love you all
