Boston and Bumblebees!

Do you remember the preschool song "I'm squishing up my baby bumblebee!" ? Jake absolutely loves to sing this song and Landry has started joining in on the action. Here Jake is responding to the part: "Owww, he stung me!" Thought this picture turned out darling. Thanks mom for sending it to me~
Excerpt from the Boston Marathon web page:
The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon. In 2008 nearly 22,000 runners completed the race. Registration for the 2009 Boston Marathon will begin on September 3 at 9 a.m. (ET). The field will be limited to the first 25,000 entrants.

Now click on this LINK. Boston closed YESTERDAY. Yes, I have been twiddling my thumbs while mom told me every time I saw her,"You better register for Boston." And honestly I was just waiting until payday! From what I understand, Boston usually doesn't close until mid-February/early March. Mom said it may have to do with the Olympics being last last year. Don't know, but I called the Boston Athletic Association this morning since my name hadn't been posted on the entrants list yet( I registered Saturday night). The lady I spoke with said they were just waiting on verification of my time from the SA marathon and that I got in "just under the wire". Glad to see that this time was a happy story. Could have been disastrous with plane tickets and hotel reservations already made, although some refunds would have occurred-not 100%.

That's all.
