More Eman Soccer

Here's another indoor game of Eman's from February 18th. Yes, his mother packed the wrong jersey so he's wearing an orange pene. His team heads to the playoffs next weekend.
Scott made him a facebook page (see right side of blog for link) and his own website (what 8 year old doesn't need his own website?), you can follow him at:

Quotes From Eman:

Watching Annie's first indoor soccer game:
E: I should be their Coach.
Mommy: Really? What would you tell them if you were their coach?
E: I'd tell them to spread out and look for options
M: Hello Kephern Jr.

Yes we did go to Florida...

We traveled to Florida again this past January for the Kick IT 3x3 Tournament at ESPN Wide World of Sports. Here are some highlights of Eman's games. He is number 21.

For those of you who Pray....

In 2009 I posted about Scott's best friend's son, Derek Ellerbeck who had beat cancer after fighting it for 2 years. Yesterday, we were so sad to read this latest post. Please remember him, his parents, and sister in your prayers.

The BEAST is back

Posted 23 hours ago

Derek's cancer has come back with a vengeance.

There are spots all the way up the lining of his spinal column.

We don't what, if any, options he has left. The doctors are calling multiple other hospitals to see what options are available. We should hopefully know within a couple of days.

Prayers would be appreciated.

CANCER SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First Penance


Annie and Eman had their First Penance Saturday. They both admitted to being nervous at first, but Annie came out with a smile. Eman was the only child who decided to take on the priest face to face. Everyone else wanted the screen between them and the scary priest. He was in there for quite a while. So much so, I started to get a bit nervous. I hope he's not having a big mad for the priest. He came out like it was no sweat. Later in the night he was raging (our new word for the big mad) and yells, "I hate going to confession." God appreciates your honesty Eman good job. Eman wasn't very in to taking pictures so we don't have any of him. But here are some of Annie. Next up, First Communion May 6th.
