Elliot turns 12!

This year for Elliot’s birthday we went to dinner at Jason’s Deli and then went sledding with the Reagens. We had his traditional family party on Sunday and these are some of his favorite things to do.

This year is Elliot’s first year in a traditional school. His adjustment has been great and he is going well. Most days he is up around 7:40 and has to catch the bus at 8:30. A couple of days a week he is up at 6:40 so he can go to band practices before school. On school days he gets home at 4:30 and can often be found doing homework or playing tag with Lucia and Rose after school. He likes to make smoothies for snacks. His evenings usually include soccer and then he is in bed by 10. On the weekends he likes to sleep in a little, play on the Xbox, and play outside.

Elliot’s Birthday Party

This year we celebrated Elliot’s birthday a couple of days early because I am going to be traveling on his birthday. We had the Reagens over for dinner, and the usual birthday festivities.

Red Flannel Run

Susan and the kids braved the cold temperatures this morning to come cheer me on in the Red Flannel Run. Susan and I ran this race together 17 years ago when we were dating. It was fun to do it again.

So long, RV!

It was bittersweet today as we sold the RV! A nice family came out to look at it on Sunday and today we completed the deal. We are glad it is going to a good home!
