The rest of May

I have been woefully behind on the blog. I decided that to catch up I would just do a few posts that cover entire months. Here comes May. . .

Happy Birthday, Elliot!

Cameron, Elliot, and Ian

Today we celebrated Elliot’s 14th birthday, with the Reagens in attendance. It is the first time they have been in our house since they spent the night on New Year’s.

Elliot is in 8th grade now and is back in school this semester after learning online last semester. He wakes up for school at 6:55 and we leave at 7:20. After school he has track until about 4:30 and then he has soccer 3 nights a week around dinner time. During the little freetime he has, he likes to play Rocket League, Forza and watch videos on his phone and computer.

One fun thing Elliot started in the past year is “Elliot’s Fun Facts.” He makes up random facts that are fun.

Favorite song: Commitment Issues
Favorite color: Red
Favorite food: Skyline
Favorite musical artist: none
Favorite book: Elliot doesn’t read anymore
Favorite sport: Soccer
Favorite movie: none

Mountain Biking

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.

I forgot to get a picture on the trail, so this closing shot will have to do.
