Elon had his second to last session of sportball. This week he played basketball. I missed out on the action since I was sick in bed with the same stomach bug that had Elon down and out earlier in the week. I did not even get out of bed on Saturday, and Sunday was not much better. Elon is apparently pretty good at shooting hoops according to Maggie. He’s pretty good at everything except kicking a ball from what I can see. We just need to work on his kick timing. He kicks great when he gets the timing right, but that is only about 30-35 percent of the time. He’s also had more swim lessons and is apparently doing quite well at passing his assignments for swim safety.
Violet continues to gain balance. She can stand up and hold on with only one hand while looking all around. Very good balance skills. A little way off from walking but very good for only 7 months old. I’d bet shes walking before 9 months and Elon did not walk until 14 months. She is trying to catch up to Elon in every way and is always wanting to watch whatever he is doing.
