Lots of action this past weekend. Elon had sportball where he got some baseball lessons. He’s a pretty good hitter. Not much for base running. Fred and Elvia were camping at dockweiler near LAX. They came over on Friday evening. We spent Saturday and Sunday at the beach with them and then Monday evening we went to dinner to celebrate Elvia’s birthday.
We took a road trip after work to go get the motor home and move it closer to home. Now it’s 1.5 miles from home instead of 1.5 hours. Gonna be much nicer although we really liked the setup in Chino. Carwash for motorhomes large clean spaces. The new place is a typical storage place.
Happy pi day.
Left for work in the fog and returned home to the fog but it’s a nice sunny day in Gardena at work. They say it’s unusual to have fog all day. Usually just the morning. This has been a few months full of “this is not normal weather around here.”
Violet seems to be teething and will use anything to rub her gums. This time she chooses the water bottle valve.
Tesla has begun to roll-out the Energy side of their business. They build battery packs and power generation. They take in solar energy during the day and then use the battery pack to provide energy during the night so that you essentially run on solar all day and night by adding battery packs to the system. Its been done on small scale for off-grid homes, but now the battery technology has improved enough that it is cost effective to do it on a large scale. Exciting times at Tesla.
Instead of preschool this summer we have unrolled him in swim classes as well as a class called sportball. Sportball is a class where you learn the basics of a lot of sports. Balance ball handling running. Baseball basketball soccer volleyball and tennis are some of the sports listed. It should be good for him to be exposed to all the sports as well as learn something basic skills. Swimming will be good as well. It’s nice to have so many options with the city sports programs. He’ll eventually be able to learn skateboarding and surfing. They also have art theater and TV/filmmaking. The kids won’t run out of options.
Today we attended the orientation for enrolling Elon in kindergarten. He’ll start in September but he’ll go to prekindergarten for a year and then kindergarten because he was born after September 1st.
We’re slowly making progress on unpacking from the move. The house did not have nearly enough storage compared to our other house. We had 3 bathrooms and now just one. The one had almost zero storage. So we bought a new sink and cabinet. We now have four drawers and some counter space which the original sink did not have. We also got a medicine cabinet instead of just a mirror. That gives us a bunch more storage and we finally have an organized bathroom.
