Thanks JT, I feel better after the breath!

Congratulations to your daughter for her graduation. Is there a college picked out for the fall?

Muushka ~ I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well and glad you are starting to feel better! Thank goodness you didn't get sick during the cruise.

Dizny Dad ~ I'm interested in knowing about the progress at the SSR pool and where the famous rocking chairs are on the property. Glad you had a great birthday!

MiaSRN62 ~ Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

Well to save the best for last.... DH/I are leaving on Saturday for a two week vacation in Orlando. We exchanged two RCI timeshares and our first week is at Saratoga, second week at Hilton by SeaWorld. I still had an "ongoing search" with RCI hoping that a second week will become available in one of the DVC resorts. This morning I got a huge surprise when I logged into RCI. We are now staying at Saratoga Springs for two weeks in a two bedroom villa! I'm bouncing off the walls with excitement and nearly hit my head on the ceiling fan this morning from jumping up/down! I started planning this vacation in October 2009 and our dream came true. I'm floored that a unit became available, especially two weeks prior to check-in date. I almost canceled the search last night but something told me to keep it active. I can't even explain how happy I am right now.

Have a great day everyone!
Woohoo! Got your whole 2 weeks!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Groupie Moms

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIZNY DAD!!!


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE GROUPIE MOMS!


JT - congrats on DD's graduation! Did she go to your local school's graduation ceremony? Just curious how that would work since she was homeschooled.

I Book He Pays - Woo Hoo on getting SSR! I wish you a magical trip.

Maria - thanks for sharing those great pictures!

All this talk of trips is making me very excited for my own trip coming up in 3 more weeks!

Hello Groupies! I hope you all had a great weekend...

...to those of you who qualify - Happy Mother's Day!

... Happy Belated Birthday DDad!


I was out in the woods this weekend, til about noon today, for a Scouting function - being inducted into the Order of the Arrow - the National Honor Society for the Boy Scouts. My eldest son was inducted last year, and hopefully my younger son will be next year... this year was my turn. I don't like that they do the Ordeal over Mother's Day weekend, but the OA Chapter has done it that weekend every year for the past 40 years.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!

Muushka

She finished her HS studies back in early Nov. and decided to start college early. She started college in Jan. through a program called College Plus. Its basically a fast track program where she can get a 4 yr degree in 2 yrs. Cost between $12-15,000 when all is done. She studies one subject, takes test at Strayer University in Greensboro, moves on to next subject. I guess homeschool really sunk in for her because she was determined to not leave home. She has no desire to be involved with the "college lifestyle" as it so often depicted. She is taking Business Administration with thoughts of starting her own Events Planning business. Her degree will come from Bryan College in Tenn. or Thomas Edison College in NJ, not sure which right now but she feels according to her studies, most likely TEC.

The graduation was held through our county HS group. Tammy spearheaded it back in Oct. and with lots of help pulled it off! It was held at a local church. We had 12 grads, could have been more, but some wanted there own personal ceremony, others decided to graduate with the big NC group. That one is big, probably 2500plus. We had a slideshow for each grad put to 3 mins of their song choice. Kristian used The Carpenters Top of the World, pics scaling her life from baby to now. We presented her diploma at this point, and dear ol dad lost it at this point! But it was a very emotional event for all. One photo was of Stan kissing her on cheek on top of the Lodge during flag family. Then we had a minister speak. He gave grads 12 commons sense, biblical based points to live by. Very good things we all could grab onto. Very different from traditional ceremonies, but more personal.

Jimmy, one word, WOW. That is an amazing study that your daughter is taking. I have never heard of the program but it sounds like a great concept. You and Tammy must be very proud of her. Heck, she isn't even my daughter and I'm proud of her! Thank you for sharing.

Ciao, all!

In the words of my most favorite TV doctor and Dad, Bill Cosby, tell those tripacocosauraus germs no more partying. Get well quick guys.

Muushka ~ I'm still shocked that we got into SSR the second week. As you know via. email... the issues I had with RCI and planning this vacation since October 2009. I'm so happy and bouncing off the walls with excitement.

Hello Groupies! Thanks to all the advice I got on the VWL Groupies thread, we had a wonderful (but short) 2 night stay at VWL!

The CMs at Wilderness Lodge (check in, front desk, Roaring Forks) were some of the nicest CMs we've met at WDW! The lobby at WL was gorgeous, and we literally sat there for hours after the parks closed early one night. I'm not a woodsy/outdoorsy kind-a-girl, but the VWL was lovely We will be keeping this one on our list as a "go to" DVC resort. Thanks again!
