  1. I didn't really like it either. I actually bought the DVD because I had heard so many good things about it that I was sure that it would be something that we would watch again and again. No one in my family was really that excited about it and I doubt that we will ever watch it again. I didn't even love the music that much and I love musicals/Broadway/showtunes, etc.
  2. I love pretty stationery! I still buy it and use it for thank you notes and other short notes. For myself, I typically use pretty notecards from Papyrus or museum shops. I also have monogrammed notecards that I use for more formal things. My daughters use notecards for their thank you notes. They typically use personalized notecards that I ordered for them, but they also have some notecards that have a picture depicting their interests/passions. I hate that sending a receiving letters and notes has basically disappeared!
  3. My BIL is a dermatologist. He recommends Free and Clear products for my DD. It is available on Amazon. His second choice is Vanicream. It is available at CVS or on Amazon.
  4. I have had a sunroof in my last two cars. I never ever use it. It is just something that came with my car because I wanted other features.
  5. I went to college in Virginia I have 2 daughters and no sons I have an MBA
  6. I paid for college and grad school myself. I worked, got some grants, and took out a small amount of loan money. I paid off my student loans the year after I graduated from grad school. DH worked and paid for college himself. He did his first two years at a CC and then finished up his four-year degree at a university. We will pay for our two children's education. They are very average students and will not likely qualify for any scholarship money. Fortunately, we are prepared to pay the full cost.
  7. I voted "extended social circle." I haven't seen her for several years, but someone that I knew when my kids were little adopted her children. I don't know of anyone else.
  8. I am not terribly familiar with RWB's program at all, so I hate to lead you in the wrong direction, but, in general, I would tend to avoid anything that says "recreational" since it seems like your children are advancing beyond that category. It sounds like your home program would be a better fit than a program designated as "recreational."

    Yes, around here it would be unusual to go into a house without a basement.
  10. That would be funny if they did! She hasn't ruled out PBT but I don't think she is leaning toward it though. Did you know that the dorms aren't air-conditioned (unless you get Byham House which only holds like 20 people)? Ugh! (That's not why she is leaning toward something else, but it doesn't help! LOL) BTW, my DD is turning down Boston too.
  11. That's SO exciting! Congrats to your son! My DD was accepted to PBT (the 5 week, as well as the Company Experience) too. She still plans to audition for Nashville (if she hasn't picked one by then). BTW, she got her acceptance to TWSB this past weekend. No idea where she is planning to go yet though. Has your son decided yet? It would be funny if our kids ended up in the same place this summer! LOL!
  12. I think a two-week program would be a great compromise! Something like RWB or CPYB's August Course would be great! That way they get the best of both worlds. Yes, I agree about the elite programs. Everyone there has been accepted and paid their money, so the teachers should really be giving everyone attention! They can still have their favorites, but it shouldn't mean that they ignore 1/2 (or more) of the class!
  13. Honestly, staying at home is a perfectly valid option if you have good training at home. Summer intensives really aren't "necessary" until your kids get older (and even then they often aren't crucial). For many kids they are just fun (like some kids go to summer camp for weeks) and an opportunity to do what they love in a different place and with other kids who feel the same way. So, it is fun, but definitely not a must.
