For those who have been checking out my projects, we have our new addition to the family. David Jackson was born 2/5 at 6:33 pm. HE was 7 lbs and 13 oz. and 20” long. I thought building things out of wood was the coolest thing ever, but parenthood is AWESOME. He already has a fishing pole and I ordered him a calendar series case knife. Here is a link to his picture that they took at the hospital.

Congratulations. Fishing pole and a case knife are fine but don’t forget the baseball, baseball glove and bat.

I hope Mom is doing fine as well. I can tell that Dad definitely is on cloud nine.
