Greetings Groupies!

It's been a crazy few days in my household. Lots and lots going on - and all five of us often going in totally different directions. Ahh the growing up / teenage years. It just seems to be going faster and faster and more and more keeps coming at us. WOW. I need a breather. Glad I get to scoot out to SSR in a week and a half.

This week like so many others has no down time... it's just crazy. Even yesterday after church it was crazy busy as my DW and DD got home from their camporee and were busy with the after-camping clean-up that must be done.

This coming weekend I "get to" drive my eldest down to Bloomington, IN (about a two hour drive) to the Scout Camp for his "Pre-Camp Staff Weekend". Should be lots of fun for him. Then in just a couple of weeks, it will become a regular weekend trek throughout the summer.

But next Monday night I get my Wood Badge goodies for completing the course. I can't wait for that. I know many of you don't know much if anything about Scouting... but it really is big, and I'm very excited about it.

I haven't been around much in the past couple of weeks - been very busy going through a whole bunch of trainings and helping some buddies build a website in addition to the other myriad things I'm doing... oh yeah, and my DW leaves for California to spend more quality time with her dad on June 6th - another 11 or 12 trip - so huzzah, I'll get to play single dad once more. Then on the 19th (Father's Day) we leave for Summer Camp. I'm getting dizzy just thinking about it all.

So just know this... even if I'm not always commenting - I do read the posts each day. I pray for those of you who need it - and wish those of you with special days great enjoyment. I WILL make a better effort at posting as well in the days ahead. YOU afterall, are such a nice, calming part of my life - just as the Lodge is for all of us.

Nice to hear that recent trips went well, and I hope that all Groupies are doing as okay as possible healthwise. Seems like we've had a rough string of health issues with loved ones and continued prayers for everyone in that regard.

WDad...hope your trip continues to be great. Sounds like a trip full of breathtaking views and lots of admiration for our Creator's work. The closest I've been to the Grand Canyon is the fireplace at the WL lobby.

That Mickey power tower has always been one of our favorite icons. We used to visit Busch Gardens in Tampa every trip and the tower is located down Hiway 192 near the I-4 ramp heading towards Tampa. It was something we looked for on our return trips to let us know we were almost "home".

Thanks Granny for picking up that question for me . . I was struggling to extract the exact location from my aging memory for Muushka!

Stoph - keep on swimmin' - we know you are out there!

Hello from Saratoga Springs!

It is so AWESOME being here and DH/I are really enjoying ourselves so far. The CM's are amazing and we're having a great time.

We almost missed our flight on Saturday (car service never showed up - long story) and had to wake up friends to take us to the airport. I was a nervous wreck but luckily we made our 8:30am flight. When we arrived at the gate, boarding was already in progress.

From the moment the plane landed, we were at the resort within an hour. The Magic Express service was excellent and after we checked in we boarded the bus immediately. Bus was half full when we departed the airport. Checking in at SSR was a breeze and we're staying in Congress Park in a two bedroom villa. We'll have this villa for two weeks so we are happy campers. The view is of the courtyard and partial view of DTD. We love it. Also close to the quiet pool and bus stop.

We walked around the resort yesterday and it's huge! Paddock pool still under construction but they're getting there.

We are trying the standard DDP and it's so much food. Not used to eating this much. Might change it next week if we can.

Going to AK tomorrow and looking forward to it since we haven't been there yet.

Hope all of you are doing well and wanted to say Hi. We plan on visiting WL next week during one of our off days. Can't wait to see it and I'll take some pictures for all of you!

Have a great day!

Best wishes and prayers for the surgery.

And I had to re-read your first line a couple of times...stop who? From doing what????

Then I got it, a little spacebar action there, and figured out who you were referring to.

Thanks for the directions Granny. DDad, no worries. Been there....forgot that.....

The closest I ever got to the Grand Canyon was while visiting the Hoover Dam.
I had no idea how close we were!

Waiting for take off in Phoenix. It wasn't hard to leave the 2 inches of snow that we got last night!!!!

Crazy last few days switching flights for my niece and nephew. They have an issue to deal with so can't come to WDW until Friday and are so bummed. Us too. I thinke we'll have a crazy 4 days trying to fit in most that was planned. They're young but I don't know if DH and I will survive!
