This afternoon we attended the Success Assembly at Elliot’s school, to celebrate student successes in the second trimester. Elliot won the CRP award, basically for being a good and doing a good job.
Andrew had his 2nd orchestra concert of the year tonight. We didn’t have a great view of him, but we got this picture afterward and recorded Bohemian Rhapsody.
Our kids have been in to partner yoga lately, working on acrobatic moves they learn on Youtube.
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.

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.
Another year, another Valentine’s Day dinner at Panera. We’ve done this nearly every year since Andrew was born, with just a couple exceptions for other plans or lack of a Panera.
The Liesland and Reagen kids made this couch out of snow. Susan and Mary Connor sat on it.
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.
