Climbing Ladders

Billy Breaker Power Ranger:

Biggest smile in the world. Lighting up your world from the Big Apple. Just kidding. I'm not from China, haha. See me in this picture back in like 1998 when I was 13 years old. Behind me are KUMON Math Awards below that world map. Man, I love being a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT), but I'm not a swamp creature of CORPORATE DC. Wake up early & smile. Wake up early & make your bed. Wake up & eat your oatmeal. I'm trying my best. Take your life one step at a time!

Two Weeks Old

Baby Joey on Monday, the 25th of February, 1985, I'm guessing, getting some sunshine. Marilyn, Joey's mother, held his hand. The back of this photo said "2 weeks old" which may mean that Joey was 2 weeks old in this photo. Not sure of the exact date of this picture. Joey in Mommy's room at their home in Forest Grove. Joey is the third oldest kid out of four kids. Joey has an older sister, Katie, and an older brother, Ricky. The youngest is his other sister, Crystal. Joey was born on Monday, the 11th of February, 1985. Mothers guide children. That is a beautiful thing! Mothers are Creators!

1992-12-18 Friday | my first day in Los Angeles with family. We took a Greyhound bus, which took about two days from Portland, Oregon. So, this was when I was seven years old, in 1992, in December. We may have arrived in LA on Friday the 18th, or it may have been like Sunday. We stayed for like a week. I wet my pants during the night, I think, that is why my jeans are lighter at the bottom and darker at top. I was a bed wetter until I was like 14 years old. I slowly transitioned out of it as I got older and older.

Disneyland '92

Maybe Christmas Day, Friday the 25th, at like 6 AM PST in the morning at the gates, the entrance of Disneyland. We awoke around 4 AM and drove a few hours to get there. We spent all day there. It may have been Christmas Day and we went back to Oregon like the next day. We took a few naps during the day. I got like lost like Home Alone once trying to follow the back of my dad's head or something as I wanted to get back on Splash Mountain. We saw a Michael Jackson music video.

1993-11 | Joey, his siblings; & neighbors: Bhakti, Dharma, Patrick. See the Skippy peanut butter. See Rick in the Blazers pants. I wonder what we were watching on television. Remember TV? That was long ago.

Christmas '95

1995-12 | Christmas Play | Joey, Crystal, & Ryan Flynn, played shepherds; you can also see Elizabeth (Liz) & Nada Warren, Chet Bishop. This was at our Cornelius Community Baptist Church. We were also taking karate lessons that year. A few times, like on Mondays, we would go up for karate lesson near 7 Eleven at like 6 PM, & on like Mondays, or like a few times each week, we had to walk about a mile over to church right after that for practice at like 7 PM a few times a week from like October to December, or something like that. I had a few lines. This was the first play or movie I've ever acted in. I might have been an extra in another play in like 1987 or something.

The Beach

1999-06 | Arnold's Family Photo | All Six of Us | at Karen William's house for the high school graduation of Karen's son, Alan. Karen is my mom's sister. Karen is funny & amazing. Her sons, Nathan & Alan, played basketball. We enjoyed going to their house in Warrenton in the 1990's. We loved going to the beach in the summer, annually. Compare our family photo of 1999 with that of 2004, just five years later.

Word Of Life Awards

As an Olympian club member, I memorized verses, recited them, went through the books, won medals, trophies, awards, as seen here, & also in AWANA's Sparkies, in the 90's. After high school, went to a Word Of Life Bible Institute in New York for 2 years, from 2004-2006. After that, went on to counsel at camps.

Ski Retreat

Find Waldo. Where is Waldo? Wait, just kidding. He is not there. Better yet, where's Joey? You can see me here with my Hillsboro First Baptist Church youth group in like January of maybe 2002 or 2003. I think I went two different years and can't remember which year this photo is from. Our youth pastor was Ryan Cruz. My favorite friends here may include April, Naomi Miller, Cheri, & 2 guys that might not be in this photo as they graduated would be Matt Oakes and Dan Anderson, I'm guessing as they skipped or were already gone. Maybe they graduated high school like 2003.
