Good morning Groupies!


I'm sitting here in a hotel room in Bloomington, IN as we are beginning a weekend of celebration for my younger daughter's graduation from Indiana University. I thought of all of you who I have known so long, and I remember posting comments on these boards when we were in the college search mode. Wow, does time ever pass quickly!

Since we are great about supporting each other through life's rough times, I wanted to also share a time that is full of joyful anticipation of a new stage in my daughter's life. We couldn't be happier and prouder for her. And all you who I've "known" so long, I wanted you to be part of this happy time. Enjoy your weekend, and I wish every one of you a wonderful day.

It was so quiet and relaxing, siiiiigh. We actually got there at 10am and 1st had breakfast at WCC which was great.
Some other things I LOVED:
The boat ride to MK after dark.
Walking anywhere on this property!
Renting sea racers and speeding around Bay Lake.
The lobbies in both the villas and the lodge.
The extremely short walk from the villas to the bus stop- since I tend to forget things and seem to always be running back for something.

The only thing we wish it had was a little water play area for our little guys. The kiddie pool was cute and they'll be big enough to go down the slide before I know it anyway .



Anyway, we loved it loved it loved it!!!
Kate -- thanks for your vacation update! It's so fun to read about everyone's trips! My little guys will be big guys this time. We can't wait to go!

Granny -- how wonderful! Although I'm still sort of a new groupie, and haven't been around for all the milestones, I can appreciate your thoughts and feelings right now! Our boys are still relatively young, but they are in that stage where you realize they are REALLY growing up -- and it's happening fast. I know we will be in your shoes in the blink of an eye.

Reading your post is a reminder to me to really stop and savor every little moment!

Congratulations!!!!!

Congratulations on your daughters graduation! It's so nice to have somewhere to share all the happy times with friends. New and old!

We had a great night. We went to one of our favorite restaurants in the city, and headed straight home to watch the Pens game! Super romantic, right?

But I know there's a lot of hockey fans around here - so you all can understand

We decided that wine and dessert would be best served in front of the TV with PJ's on.

I hadn't joined the groupies yet when you were in college search mode but I do know how quickly time can fly. Congratulations to your daughter Granny. May she experience all of the good things life has in store.

Congratulations to your daughter and your entire family on her graduation! Like you Granny, hard to believe the years have gone by so quick! I remember when you folks were in the search, now you are on the other end of it all

I hope all groupies are having a good weekend.

It has been crazy here in Texas. Usually the end of February or into March, we are warming up and we get ready for hot. But we get into May and we actually had temps in the upper 30's. I was like what is going on here, this is May and this is Texas. . . . . . very unusual. But we are warming up again and are now back in the 70's.

Rehab has been going well. They informed me the other day that I am surpassing everything they are having me do so that they have upped my release date from 5-10 to Wed 5-8!!!

So for my non Disney countdown I have 4 more days til freedom!!! They have built the ramp for me to get into my house and DH and the kids have been rearranging and trying to make sure I can maneuver the wheelchair and the walker. They are so good to me!

So here are my happy dancers!!!
