Prayers Please

OK, everyone, I need you to say a quick prayer. We are having our 2nd Annual Camp CURE-ageous/Relay for Life Co-ed Softball Tournament this weekend in Maurice. So, please pray for nice weather. Or even just not miserable weather.

If you don't have anything going on, we'd love for you to come out and enjoy the day with us. We'll have the concession stand up and running. Good food and good entertainment... and all for a good cause!

There are 8 teams total, and I think 3 of those teams involve people from Carmel Church.

Let me know if you would like any more details.

Brody is 6 Months Old

Brody, Brody... I can't believe that you're 6 months old already. (OK, so I'm two days late... so you're 6 months and 2 days. Same thing, right?) Life has really changed since you've been around... but it has changed in good ways, of course. Here's what you're up to these days:

You love to watch your big brother. He "kickles" you, and you love it.
You are so content. You're happy being on the floor, because you love to roll around, but you also like your walker or your jumper.
Yesterday, at your 6 month check-up, you were 19 lbs 8 oz, and you're 28" long. You're in the 90% for your age. I think you're perfect.
You love to go to Gretchen's house for daycare. You like to watch the kids. Eli loves to entertain you!
You love your baby food. In fact, there's really not any that you don't like. You're still in Step 1 food, but probably not for long.
We took you to the circus last weekend. You liked it when the lights went out and all the kids had their light-up toys turned on.

Thank you, God, for giving us this little boy. We truly love being parents, and we feel so blessed! Knowing that they are watching our every moves makes us want to be better people. Thank you for putting them in our lives.

(I will post some updated pictures later on. I promise!)

Second Inning...

Are you ready for the SECOND INNING?!

2008 marked the first year for the annual Relay for Life co-ed slow pitch softball tournament. Boy, was it memorable! In May of last year, you probably saw news coverage of the teams playing in the mud, rain, and even snow – and we all had a blast! There were so many great sports out there who were raising money for an important cause! Now we are gearing up for the second year. (although we’re hoping for slightly better conditions) With so many families being affected by cancer, we remain committed to finding a cure – and here are a few ways you can join in the fun:


Our softball tournament will be held on May 1st & 2nd. WE NEED MORE LADIES! Guys, would your wife, daughter, babysitter, beautician, banker, etc be interested in playing ball? They don’t need to worry about being good… this is about fun.

Everyone is invited to come out and cheer on the Interstates team. The concession stand will be open, and there will be a silent auction with some great items that you will want to check out!


We’re making T-shirts, and we need your help. Who can you think of that has fought cancer? For $5 you can have their name put on the back of the T-shirt (either “In Memory of” or “In Honor of”). T-shirts will be sold at a later date. We want everyone who is interested to be able to purchase a shirt, so we’ll be selling them at the best price possible.



Just shoot me an email at or leave me a comment on this page if you are interested in more info on any of these things.

Thank you!
