Re: Family visiting
My DD and I went down near Thanksgiving and returned after to visit my DS. It was great, decorations all up for the holidays.
Just remember you get a discount for your family after you start your program.
Christmas was the only time my DS was a tad sad not to be home. I came up with great surprise for Christmas Day for the DS. If your parents are at all interested have them PM me and I will share my surprise with them.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
