Jai and Rene's Baby Shower

While Obama was making it 10 in a row over Hillary last night in Wisconsin, I was in northwest Washington, D.C., for a baby shower in honor of Jai and Rene, who have little Isaiah on the way.

Jai and I are soccer teammates on 2 indoor teams. He was born in Ghana and educated in England and the U.S. (Atlanta), where he played on a championship high school soccer team. I have gotten to know sweet Rene through Jai, and both attend nearby Howard University.

Here they are, holding an autographed copy of what I've heard is a pretty good book. We await a review from young Isaiah. 


On the wall above Jai's piano and next to the kitchen:

A wonderful time with friends old, new, and yet to arrive.
