Two great articles in the Boston Globe today (thanks to Brion O'Connor):
As it says in the article, we are leaving in just a few days. We spent today doing errands - getting Gu, glow sticks and other things we need for the trip. Looking forward to getting over there.
Thought I would also provide an update on the hair.
My last haircut was June 14th and my hair has - well, it has gotten a bit out of control. There is enough of it now that I think it should provide me with a bit of warmth on the swim. If it doesn't it will have at least provided something for Oliver to hold on to when he's riding on my shoulders. If Oliver doesn't manage to pull it all out by the time we return from England, a haircut is going to be one of the first thing that happens.
