Nous avons voyagé jusqu'en Caroline du Sud, à Myrtle Beach, pour le semi-marathon. 23 km pour lesquels David se prépare depuis maintenant 9 mois!
Nous sommes restés dans une suite d'hôtel avec 2 chambres, une salle de bain et une petite cuisine~vue sur la mer, s'il vous plait!
Juste ce qu'il faut pour relaxer et se bourrer de pâtes le soir d'avant!
The only hard thing for the fan club ( Jeff and I )...and the competitors, was that it started at 6:30am! It took all I had to roll out of bed and be supportive about this.
David was amazing! the official pictures of the race are here for you, and his thoughts and comments are on his blog.
Pour ma part, j'ai eu assez de mal à juste êre présente au départ, aux 5 km et à l'arrivée... Cela m'a pris plusieurs jours pour m'en remettre!
Nous avons ensuite eu assez de temps pour aller faire un tour sur la plage...mais l'Atlantique était bien trop froid!
I was disappointed that the hotels line the beach...so when you are on the closest street to the ocean, you don't actually see the water...oh well! This is an "after" picture...my man is looking good!

Je pense qu'Estelle est en train de dire "Thank you, David" ...I think she is trying to thank David too for this AWESOME birthday gift!
Pendant mon petit séjour avec la famille Couture, à Gatineau, j'ai emmené Rebecca et les enfants à "Cosmic Adventure"- un parc intérieur immense- en cadeau d'anniversaire avancé! We spent the day there playing until we dropped! The best thing about this place is that the adults get to go in with the kids...though I have to say I felt a little clostrophobic in the tubes!

The other update is that we spent a few days this week in DC for the AcademyHealth National Health Policy Conference. It was a good conference with important speakers (former HHS Security Donna Shalala, current CBO Director Peter Orzag, congressional staffers, representatives of the 3 major Presidential campaigns, etc. The days were long but I learned a lot. Sarah spent all day monday walking around to the various museums, sitting to watch free movies as often as she could. Her poor pregnant body was so tired that she slept in on Tuesday until noon. She deserved it, our little girl is working her hard!

It all came together today! We borrowed, drove to get the couch in Raleigh, dropping our old couch off at a friends along the way. My dad came by and helped us move everything around so that now it feels like we live in a completely different apartment. I've been real resistant to change, but am now glad Sarah plowed forward with her artistic vision. You should come by and check it out.
The REALLY big news though is that this evening we received mail from the US Social Security Service. After almost two years of trying to figure out how we can legally live as a married couple in the same country, Sarah now has a social security number!! This isn't quite as great as a canadian social insurance number (she doesn't get free health care with this card), but it does allow her to pay taxes and work!! Things are really working out well for us. Thank you to everyone that helped make this happen.
