Today was Elliot’s actual birthday. He went to Skyzone with Cameron, Susan and Erin and then afterward they went out for dinner.
This evening we celebrated Elliot’s birthday, a few days early. The Reagens and Mar-Mar and BeBob came over for dinner.
Elliot turned 13 this year. He is generally a caring boy who likes to help out around the house, sometimes. He is still the best at making Andrew laugh, and also knowing how to get under his skin. He wakes up at 6:30 every morning for school, where he spends most of his day. Every day when I pick him up I ask if anything happened today, to which the reply is always ‘no.’ In his free time he likes to play soccer and hang out with Cam.

This evening Susan took Elliot to his solo festival. All members of the band have an opportunity to play a solo for a judge who rates them on various measures. I think it went well.
Along with being in band, Elliot is also singing in the 7th grade choir at his school this year.
Tonight was Elliot’s first concert with the 7th grade band. Elliot plays the saxophone and is straight down the back row, near the back.
This evening we went to a presentation at Elliot’s school where he and his classmates shared the PSAs that they made for various causes.
This evening Elliot’s middle school band joined the Valley High School band at their football game.
Today we tried to take Elliot to school, again. But we still had to get his vaccine issue worked out. We ended up spending most of the school day hunting down the show he needed and by the time the day was over, he was all set for tomorrow!
