Count me in!!! I enjoyed your anniversary trip report very much (can't remember if I posted --may have been a lurker!) So I'm excited to find another one. And something about a surprise trip just makes it all the more special. I hope to do that someday so I'll be filing away ideas!!

YES!!! I find myself doing that all the time.

Oh my gosh! I have been neglecting my PreTrippie and I'm soooo sorry!! I promise to update real soon! I've been super busy with Annie, Jr., traveling for color guard camps, and visiting a friend in Houston for a few days. I'm home for the week, so should be updating soon!

Thanks for hanging in there with me

Sooze,

When you get a chance...There is a report on the trip board http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1698318

Can you check out post #211 and let me know if she's talking about you and Matt????? It just seems too coincidental.

Isn't that WEIRD!?! Wasn't us though.. she was there in May, I believe, and we got serenaded in January. Plus, the girl she has the picture of (in the big blue dress) was not wearing that big blue dress! In fact, when we were there in Jan 07, she was pregnant!

Thanks for thinking of me though!!

I'm heeeeerree!!

Wow! What a crazy few weeks this has been. I'm going to share with you some of the reasons why I've been missing in action!!

#1 Tyson's Cub Scouts. End of the year banquets, hikes, etc. He is now a wolf cub! Hooray!
Ty getting his new YELLOW scarf


#2 End of the School year. BIG NEWS... and not so good. We've had TONS of budget cuts for next year... some drama with property tax caps in Indianapolis. They needed to eliminate positions, and decided that applied technology is expendable. YUP... kids don't need focused technology instruction until they get to 5th grade. Crazy, I know. Of course, I can't complain.. I still have a job while many others don't. But it's back into the classroom for me. I'll be teaching 3rd grade next year.. which is my favorite grade to teach.. and I'm back on a team with some dear friends. But this change meant cleaning out my room completely and moving to a new room. Still not really done with this mission...

#3 Trip to Minneapolis. We took a quick 3-day excursion to the Twin Cities. Matt's brother lives there with his wife and adorable daughter. We got to see two Twins/Yankees games and I got to see 42nd street (with SIL in the cast!!).. yes.. we are all musical and theatrical in our family and I LOVE it!

Go Yankees!

Shae's first Major League Dog!


#4 Trip to Cedar Rapids. I spent 4 days in Iowa teaching a color guard all of their choreography for their fall marching band show. It's a great gig that helps me pay off credit cards, and the kids I teach are just heavenly! Flooding did not affect my trip, but a few students had to leave rehearsal because their families were being evacuated

#5 Annie, Jr. I helped direct a production of Annie, Jr. This meant 4 rehearsals a week and endless hours of set construction, costume finding, and promotions. It ended up being a FABULOUS show and the kids had a great experience. But MAN did it eat up my time!!

FDR, Annie, and Daddy Warbucks


#6 Summer fun! My kids are too much fun. Now that Shae is old enough to run around with her big brother, we just can't stop playing! No one can fault me on this one, right?
Slip and Slide!!

Or Stop and Drink, as Shae demonstrates


Fly Shaelyn, Fly!!

Must spend time with the cuteness!


#7 Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Don't laugh, don't call me crazy, don't roll your eyes.. but, yes, I am starting on ANOTHER show!! This makes 3 in a row for me. But I just couldn't pass this up. Don't know how many of you know the show, but I was cast as the "Narrator". This is a HUGE singing role, and I'm so excited to have the opportunity. But, with DH on tour with drum corps all summer, it makes for lots of baby sitters... thank goodness my kids are exceptional with sitters.. and I have a long list to chose from!

See? I have my reasons for being absent and I'm stickin' to 'em!! But.. I'm back.. and ready to get geared up for our little surprise trip. Next post, our itinerary and ADR's. Be ready to pass on advice, if you can!
