Hold On!

This video is a project that I feel needs more light on it.  A year ago, I wouldn’t be that vested in it.  It just seems like we have many teens take their lives all to often especially in my oldest sons high schoo here in Meridian Idaho, Mountain View High.   One of my really good friends took his life this year also, and that was a hard one to hear because we were no longer speaking to each other and I felt I should have made more attempts to help him out.  I hope we can all learn just a little bit more about this huge problem and see what we can do to bring more awareness.  Or let our children know they are not a lone and our friends.  especially those who have isolated themselves.  Go after those that “don’t deserve your love, or time” those are usually the ones in a dark place.  I am going to try and suppress my pride and talk to more people around me and be kind.  I think if we all made a little bit more of an attempt we could do great things.  Help those around us to Hold On! we still need them!

Today I lost an old friend

I don’t even know where to start, I have so many emotions today.  My family (besides little JR) decided to go to the zoo to just walk around and enjoy the animals.  As we were walking around, Cassie, Marks sister texted us telling us the news.   Mark Kormylo is no longer with us!  I was so shocked to hear the news, I just didn’t  understand it.  How did this happen!  I felt immediate guilt that I wasn’t there for him, and I didn’t help him in his time of need.  I looked for a long time to find a photo of Mark, I didn’t want to borrow from anyone else.  I found this photo below of Mark holding my first born JR, just after he was born. He was so gentle with him, and always good to my boys.

I can’t really call him a friend as of late, I wasn’t there for him in his hardest hours of his life.  It’s been almost 8-9 years since we actually were hanging out and active friends.  We drifted apart, and sadly we didn’t talk much anymore.  Now, more than ever I wish I would have made more of an effort.   Lots of emotions, and memories playing back in many minds.  Mark was a great dad, and a good person, and many will miss him.  I will always remember our fun times together hunting and riding motorbikes.  In memory of Mark, I want to post a couple videos here that I created from the past.  These are old videos, I don’t have any new stuff since we drifted apart.  Nothing special, just memories.  RIP my brother!

Memorial Weekend Vlog at Lake Cascade Cabin

Little vlog of the weekend up in Donnelly at Lake Cascade!  Boys love this time of the year because school is almost over and the weather is so nice.  I did a ton of drone footage with my DJI Phantom 4 Pro up here, so defeinely check out the views if you can get past the cheesy commentary that I give hahaha.  Please enjoy!

Sali Lacrosse Tournament Weekend Vlog

Raymond and I had a great time in Oregon for the Sali Lacrosse Tournament in Sisters Oregon.  These are just some random clips I saved for memories of the event. We had a good time!  Here is a playlist link to all the games 

We’ve Come So Far

Celebrating 19 years of marriage with my wife.  I took our old wedding video and did some new editing with new music.  I loved the song because its seems like we have come so far in life, like many of us.  We go through life and have our ups and downs but we should always remember where we have been and look forward to the future with our family and those we love around us.  I can’t remember who was taking the video, I think a bunch of different people but so glad it was captured!

Life in the Fast Lane!

Boys having fun at Fast lane!

 

My first born is growing to fast!

My first born is growing at a pace that I’m not comfortable with. It’s very rare that I get to take a photo of him especially when his is smiling.
