Hi Guys!!!

We are here in Lorton Virginia waiting to get on the Auto train!!!! The car ride down wasn't bad at all. We got here in about 5 1/2 hours with only one stop for gas. We checked in at 10:30am and then went and got something to eat. I can honestly say that SO FAR this has been so much more relaxing then driving OR flying!!!! We shall see once on board. We get dinner on board and a breakfast... all included in the price. Our menu includes medallions of beef, talbot fish (sp), manicotti (sp) penne pasta with meatballs, or veggie lasagna. The kids can also order mac and cheese if they wish. I heard that the food is pretty good, so I will let you know.

Makenzie had a wonderful confirmation yesterday. I only wished that it was a bit warmer, but we still had a very nice day. We had lots of laughs like always!

Glad to hear that the walk went well. I saw the pictures on facebook.

Sandy, we re-sided the house. When we moved in over 14 yrs ago, Garry and I painted the house a light blue. We decided on Colonial Ivory with hunter green shutters. We also got new doors so the house looks brand new, at least on the outside! hehehe!


Well, gotta run. Getting ready to board the train! We will be posting our whole trip. We will be in disney from 14-28 and then Washington DC from 29 to the 1st. We decided to do Washington for the 2 days after, since we are so close and we have all the kids (including Anna Marie!!). It was funny, we didn't let the kids know she was able to go with us, so when we left the house, we said good bye to her and drove off. We got 2 blocks away and I said, opps I forgot my phone so we went back to the house and I ran in got my phone and then Anna Marie followed me out the door and said, what the heck, I'm coming!!! The kids were soooooooooooo excited. I had packed her clothes in suitcase when the kids weren't looking! BY THE WAY... only 2 big suitcases once again for the 6 of us. We do have 2 small carry ons for the train.. plus a small cooler and another bag of snacks... but... I'm good!

Will post more later!!


TTFN

JULIE, I AM SOOO EXCITED FOR YOU. This trip sounds AWESOME. I can't wait to read all about it. I love DC. Ok, so now you know me by now that I am an emotional person but your little Anna Marie secret made me tear up and get goosebumps all at the same time. Your kids certainly adore her. Love it. Have fun and take lots of pictures.

I wish we were going on the Med cruise. We are going on the Mexican Riviera cruise in October.

We actually have no plans for today. It is pretty rare these days.

So Julie, how was the food?

Hope your hair treatment went well Sandy.

Mom - Your hair looks good! Are you going to wash it and let it dry by itself and take a pic?

Julie - How exciting to be going by train. I think this will be a trip of a lifetime for the Lauter family! I can't wait to hear about the train ride and the food. I love DC, problem is there is just way too much to do!

Denine - Oops, guess I was reading into your post, I thought you said Med cruise...I guess that happens so early in the morning for me! The Mexican Riviera cruise will be fun. What ports are you stopping at?

Heidi, ya, I think that will be step 4 and I will probably flat iron it for a step 5.

Denine, a nice day to nothing? How did you work that?

When Heidi posted the med cruise I thought, oh how did I miss that. Glad it was Heidi's fault!

I just have to share this website for great diet recipes. Denine and Julie, it has WW points, too.

Good morning. Kind of depressed. MY scale says I gained 1 pound. I truly have been good!

It wasn't a gain but it wasn't a loss either. I stayed exactly the same.

Mom - Don't get down on yourself, stay positive. You can do this. Water aerobics will help when you can start up again with it.

Thanks Heidi. I have a confession. I lost something like 1.5 on Monday and I actually cried. How funny.

Hey all. I have been busy trying to weed and edge the flower beds. I am wearing myself out! I still have a lot more to do.

Today was the first homeschool baseball game. Interesting. We have 3 fields; t-ball, boys and girls. Well not enough people had shown up at 10 AM, so we combined the boys and girls. THey ranged in age from about 6 or 7 to high school. It was going to be boys against girls, but that didn't work out either. So we had 2 mixed teams. Well, as time went on, more people showed up and they had about 20 kids on each team! Imagine the outfield. Next week, we are just going to do boys and girls and hope enough people show up.

It has been cool all day and for the last few days. I need to go grocery shopping tomorrow, but all my meal choices are for nice summer meals (read warm weather). Now, nothing appeals to me cause who wants a cool salad on a cool day? I am trying really hard to do cheap meals, but nothing good is ever on sale. Sure, they have steak and lobster on sale for father's day, but not in the budget. It will be burgers on Sunday.

Jerry has a resume writing class tomorrow closer to his mom's house, so he is dropping Kaleigh off there for the day. She has a game tomorrow evening. We are skipping 4-H tonight. It is just a regular meeting. We aren't going camping, so I don't have any money to turn in.

Jerry has to study all weekend for a test he has to take on Monday as part of a job interview. It is on some computer language. Keeping my fingers crossed, but not holding my breath.

Sandy: I haven't weighed myself in a long time. I am afraid to look!
