    Hi Folks,

    Cheers

    Many thanks lilo88,

    Sad my son won't be going but proud of him for being responsible and wanting to be at the event. He is the drill commander this year and he runs the drills and color guard.

    Cheers

    That stinks that your son can't make it. Hope that you, your wife and youngest have a great trip in WDW. ME and my family leave Oct. 28th and it has been dragging like you would not believe. As hard as this is, try not to think about it everyday then the time might go by a little faster.

    Hi Yeti27,

    Even though it was the wife and my final decision we did let him choose. Being this is his junior year of high school we wanted to let him think it was his choice. His older brother will be home and the grandparents will make sure all goes well.

    Cheers

    Thanks - Hoping it flys by getting there and then slows down while there (Yeah Right - oh well)

    Short trip this time - scheduling around my son's school. So only Monday night to Saturday. So in the parks Tuesday till mid day on Saturday then the evil Magical Express forces us back to the airport.

    Cheers
