Happiness is Spelled "T-I-T-L-E"
A firm handshake usually suffices for a job well done. In my son's case, a big group hug by your cheering classmates will make anyone smile ear to ear. I was smiling just as big as my feeling of overwhelming pride when my son won first place in the Spelling Bee Competition in his division at his school.
Practice,practice and practice again your list of spelling words just like perfecting your image making with Canon HD DSLR's. Armed with my Canon 5D Mark II paired with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS lens, I zoomed in on the word masters to capture 1080p video. I captured the audio with the AZDEN ECZ-990 and stabilized my rig with a Manfrotto 701 HDV head on Benro 3580 tripod legs. The video and audio were magically weaved by iMovie'11 and compressed with Quicktime for a 244mb h264 video file.
For mobile devices, you can view the video here.
My son is in first grade going on 6th grade. He is growing physically and mentally faster than I can type this sentence. My son surpassed my skill level in Call of Duty: MW3. Need I say more?
My almost 11 month baby daughter is crawling at lightning speed. Magically appearing and reappearing anywhere in the house. Soon to be cruising and eventually walking, I am prepared with camera for that magic moment. This time I caught her in the fridge trying to get real dairy milk for her Cafe con Leche.
My kids will soon learn that growing up is hard to do. Adults have to move on to brighter and bigger things. After a glorious five and a half years with the James Hoyer Media Team, I am moving on with my life for a different yet positive future. I am a better and learned person with an exclusive skill set by working with these outstanding media professionals.

Of the thousands of words in the dictionary for my son to spell, I always tell him happiness is spelled "F-A-M-I-L-Y".
