Hmmm, it's been 5 months since I last updated Maddy's blog. Oka, what a slacker! I'm going to try and update his blog on a more regular basis from now on. It's not like there isn't much to blog about, Maddy has been pretty busy with school, bowling, basketball and cello.
Maddy is still enjoying school and his steadily improving grades are proof of that. His enthusiasm for the cello is fading though. Given the short attention span of kids these days, it's understandable. He wants to join the choir and band next year instead and has expressed the desire to play the tuba.
Really? Where does this kid come up with these ideas?
Maddy's basketball season ends next weekend. He has become quite the rebounder and shot blocker. He is the tallest boy on his team and so his coaches put him at center/power forward but Maddy would prefer to be a point guard. He doesn't think it's fair that the shorter kids get to bring the ball up and do most of the dribbling.
Maddy is also excelling at bowling. He has passed his momma in terms of average and he loves reminding her of it every chance he gets. Our family team has won the last 2 rounds of our Samoan league mostly thanks to Maddy. He had his personal best 224 game a couple of weeks ago!
Maddy now stands at 5'3" tall. I think it's safe to say that he will be slightly taller than BatGran and Papa by the end of the year at the rate he's growing.
