Why is it that teens who have never driven always tell you to "calm down" when you see your life flash before your eyes?
I give you 100% credit and respect eliza ! I could not really teach any of my kids. I would try and hit the imaginary brake on the floor----heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest---sweating.....just not good for my health ! My kids would actually tell you that they asked for dad to teach them.
In fact, my youngest (19) still does not have her license. She is close. She was just not emotionally ready. Baby of the family syndrome ? But my husband has been teaching her. She will be ready to take the test late May/early June.

Eliza,
I had to finish teaching my youngest son how to drive, we waited a long time to get his license until I was sure he could handle himself and he is the most careful driver now. A lady hit his car in Greenville a few years after he got his license and even now he is careful where he drives. With his handicap he is not comfortable in unknown areas and big towns, so he only drives to a few places.







I hope the people of Boston sleep easier tonight since the persons responsible for that tragedy have been apprehended and/or killed.

Thank God for resolution in that situation.

Kathy,it has been a very long week and yesterday was draining. When they held the press conference in the early evening and they did not have any significant info we weren't sure what to think. Thank goodness they caught him.

~Back to WDW planning~

We are leaving for WDW 3 weeks from tomorrow, and I feel as though I have barely thought about it in weeks.

I was just looking at the WCC lunch menu and did not see the milk shakes. Have they stopped serving them!!??

It was a massive explosion which was even felt and heard from many many miles away. It totally devestated this little town. Luckily it was evening and the plant was closed, but lives were lost and many homes and business were severely damaged. I think they are rating it close to the force of the Oklahoma City explosion. I still have not heard everything, but the pictures tell a lot.

If y'all could add a few prayers for this TX city also. It is amazing how many towns have gone down there to help. From the Dallas area, Waco and many more. Thanks for listening!
We have been getting news of the TX explosion all week. What a tragedy. They are in our prayers.

5 weeks to go, and my daughter and I will be on our first solo Disney World vacation at the Lodge. I bought my contract a year ago and have waited anxiously for this trip ever since, i wanted it to be warm enough to swim in the pool. :-). I visited the lodge 10 years ago, for my brother's wedding and knew it had to be my home resort. The atmosphere plus the boat shuttle to MK were the deciding factors for me.
I grew up in southern California, visited Disneyland frequently as a child. I made my first trip to Disney World at 2, the same age I first took my daughter. I LOVE disney! She is 4 now, and I am looking forward to many trips in the future. We have some character dinners and a a reservation for the dessert party. This will her first time to see the fireworks at the castle, I am beyond excited to share this with her! I hope she will have the same magical memories as an adult that I do now of my childhood.

I am pretty sure I saw them being served last year when we were there in May, but we did not personally get any.

I always felt my parents were relatively insane when they would allow me to drive when I was learning. Those roads were so narrow and I knew nothing!

I'm sure you'll have wonderful memories after this trip, too, and I know you will love the Lodge. The ambience and theming is beyond reproach, and the boat to MK is a bonus. Don't forget about doing a Hidden Mickey search (ask for the tip sheet at the front desk), walk along the trail to FW (where you can see horses), watch the EWP from the beach, take in s'mores and movie night also on the beach, and many other delights. Welcome home! And welcome to our Groupies!

Stopping by to say, hello! Our VWL contract just passed ROFR on Monday. With the tragedy that day, I couldn't celebrate. I am very excited now, though! It is such a beautiful resort! We are very, very happy.

I hope that all of my fellow groupies are doing well. My thoughts are with those affected by the marathon bombers. Great job by law enforcement to quickly handle the situation.

20 days until Kidani. It should be fun.

Hugs to all.
