They are never all running in the same meet this year, so we had to get a picture or Andrew, Mari, and Elliot before they left the house on meet day.
No soccer games today, so Elliot and I took Lucia out for her first mountain biking. She was a little nervous, but had fun and said she wants to go again.
Mari gave Elliot another haircut. . .
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.
