Marathon success!

Thank you so much for all of the well wishes for Robert as he ran the Boston Marathon. He did great! His time was fast enough to requalify for next year's marathon so he was quite pleased.

I took this picture as I approached the finish line around the time I thought Robert would be crossing

The crowd by the finish line was at least five people deep. I am short and couldn't see much. Just as a space cleared for me to get close to the fence, I saw Robert (in the center wearing an orange shirt) run by! I barely had time to get my camera turned on and snap a picture

This morning we fly back to Dallas. More on Boston after I get home.

Congrats to a successful marathon finish! I love Boston and actually if my husband gets his wish on grad school in a few years, we could easily live there which would be great! Hope you had a wonderful trip - it seems like to did. I went to the play at the middle school this week and they were all so precious! It made me miss it so much - but the kids at my new school really needed a teachers so how can I be sad. Have a great week!
