Update on all things RSB

friends. republicans. democrats.
the last week has been eventful for all of us here in rsb ville.
broken toes, broken down van, larengitis, and a new city every night has taught us one thing:
sleep is good. we've brought our little rock and roll show to some of the great towns of houston,tx and we've had a blast playing the new music.
so here's a few things for you, our lovely friends scattered across the globe:

RADIO
be listening for the new single "SONG OF HOPE" on a station near you.
if your station is no playing the song currently, email them and request it.

NEW ALBUM
visit iTunes, your local music store, or www.robbieseayband.com to purchase your copy of GIVE YOURSELF AWAY. remember, if you purchase the album on iTunes for 7.99, you'll receive a bonus song featuring SHANE & SHANE - available only on iTunes.

FALL TOUR w/ BRANDON HEATH
don't miss your chance to see rsb live with our good pal Brandon Heath. His song "I'M NOT WHO I WAS" is currently the 1 song in the country and the show thus far with him have been great.
visit robbieseayband.com or myspace for all the tour info

NEW SHIRTS - ONLINE
many of you have asked for them and we finally have a few of the t shirts for sale at robbieseayband.com

Belmont Foundation

friends,
this is a note from the belmont foundation, donald miller's mentoring program for boys growing up without fathers.its a beautiful organization.please read below and consider how you might partner with them in the future.
peace,
robbie

Dear Friends, Since our last correspondence with you, I am happy to report that the Belmont Foundation has begun its mentoring efforts in Portland, Oregon. This is an exciting time for us as we begin to develop long-term relationships with children who are growing up fatherless. One of the boys we are now working with, Evan, has seen a great deal of hardship in his 7 years of life. His father passed away when Evan was an infant. Things quickly spun out of control and he and his mother ended up homeless on the streets of Portland. Through help they received from many organizations, they now have their own apartment. Evan is in school and his mother is working diligently to keep things together. The Belmont Foundation was able to help them with rent and one of our mentors will soon be taking Evan to get soccer cleats and enroll him in fall soccer. Our prayer is that, through the Belmont Foundation, Evan will have a lifelong friend and role model who will be there from his first soccer game through his graduation from college, his wedding, the birth of his children and for years thereafter. The heart of God is a Father's heart. We want to be the flesh and bone that expresses God's heart to Evan, and to thousands of other young men who are begging for validation. As always, thank you for reading this note. It means a great deal to us that so many of you have responded with emails, phone calls and prayers of support and encouragement. Please continue to remember the Belmont Foundation and feel free to send this letter to others who might be interested.
Peace,
Wade Trimmer
Executive Director

diapers and family

I'm changing diapers again. I'm not looking for extra credit.

Robbie and Ryan do it all the time. I've moved to Dallas and my wife's little niece, Sophie, requires these changes from time to time. It's been a little while since I've changed a diaper. All my nieces and nephews are grown. You might say it's like riding a bike, or falling of a horse, you just get right back on that diaper and.......... wait, once you learn, you never forget. That's the one.

Anyway, my sister-in-law has MS. for those of you that don't know about that, it's a disease that attacks your muscles and nerves. One day your fine, the next day you lose all feeling down your left side, and you need a cane to walk. It's been tough to see my beautiful sister-in-law go through that much change overnight. [literally overnight] but it's been a beautiful thing to see her family kick in to action. One Grandmother watches her one day, the next day the other Grandma takes her to school. Then the opposite Grandpa pickes her up. Then Uncle Dan comes down and she's terrified. [actually she got over that pretty quick]

God's first line of support for us is our family. It's so important. But fear not if that hasn't been the best thing for some of you, because there is a community of friends as well that chip in when things get tough. I hope and pray that for all who read this.Here's to changing diapers, Lord knows he's changed mine often enough.

butterfly killer

my daughter eliana loves butterflies.
today is her 3rd birthday.
naturally, we thought a trip to the local museum would be a good fit given their world renown butterfly exhibit.
the day began well with a stop at lupe tortilla, our favorite restaurant on this lovely planet of ours. so far so good.

well, it went south very quickly.

at the museum, with hundreds of butterflies swarming around the rain forest, my daughter was completly terrified.
as she's dodging these amazing little creatures huddled in the corner, the real drama was unfolding up ahead.
my wife Liz and son Ethan have apparently trampled and killed a harmless butterfly.yeah, killed!!

now, we don't have all the details and i am presuming them innocent until proven otherwise, but i have my suspicions.
i believe my wife's size nines trampled this poor colorful creature.
no one is quite certain at this hour, but this may have been a rare species of butterfly now deemed extinct thanks to the flip flops of a young attractive female turned b-fly murderer!!

its just too much..give me a second.......

with all that on our minds and hearts tonight, we still found it in us to return home and focus on the 3 years of beauty, craziness, sweet tooth and wild abandon that is eliana seay.
happy birthday elle!

long live the butterfly,
robbie
