Can we break our PTR curse?...update 2/27 Wed and thurs plans and more count down

Ok so I've tried this PTR thing twice before but our trips just never happened. I wasn’t going to write a ptr this time because I was thinking it was bad luck. But that is silly, right? So I'm writing this ptr to break our curse and of course get some helpful tips from all you seasoned travelers.


So on with the PTR for our March 2011 trip….

First a little background on me and my party of travelers:

Lets start with Me, I'm the Mommy -Jessica, the main Disney fan in my family. I'm 32 (will turn 33 on the trip) been to the world only once for my honeymoon, wish I could've been more times and certainly have several trips planned in our kids and my future. I have however been to Disneyland more times than I can count since I mostly grew up in California and I've been going since I was a baby. I have two children, both boys, and both Disney fans. I currently work at Jason’s Deli part time and will be returning to school to finish my degree so I can teach.


Next in the cast of travelers is my DH- not such a Disney fan, but doesn't want to miss out on any adventures the boys have. Paid me the best compliment the other day in saying that in all the mother-child interactions he has seen, I'm the best mother. Ok, well he is 39 and a high school teacher and football coach. Football to him is what Disney is to me. So it's nice we each have our thing. Here are some pictures of DH and I on our honeymoon:







Up next our darling children….

Hi! I am just in the process of reading All7ofUs's PTR from the start and came across a post from you about how you changed your life style since you became a mom (Part 1 page 44 ). And then I saw the link to your PTR in the signature and hopped over only to find out that it is a brand new PTR! So I am here and am looking forward to read more about your plans! I am sure that this time you will be able to break the curse!!!!

Our darling little 5 year old

My DS Jack is 5 years old now, where did the time go.


When we go in March he will still be five, he doesn’t turn five until the end of March. He is a very active high spirited boy. He was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in January of 2008, and was in a self contained class that school year for pre-school. He has made great strides with his speech and occupational therapy for sensory issues, and attended a regular parent’s day out program at our church this past school year.


In the upcoming school year he will attend a new program specific to children on the spectrum. We tried to get him into our church affiliated school and they turned us down. I was heart broken, and did not want him in this program he is going to be in. Now after two months of working with his new teacher and having visited this new church and school several times….I couldn’t be happier and so glad for what God lead us too. This is going to be the best thing for our son, and that is all we want. So we have changed parishes and our son has a WONDERFUL teacher and is going to get all the services necessary to prepare him to attend a typical class kindergarten next school year.

He has already visited Disneyland two times




Technically my 2 yo also went to Disneyland before, here is my Jack and Joey in my belly


and is VERY excited to visit Mickey’s castle in Florida, you see the castle at MK isn’t the castle of a princess in his world- it belongs to the big cheese. We have never gotten to ride on Dumbo, and we have plans to ride that first. We have gone through the phase of LOVING Cars (still does), Mickey (still does), Phineas and Ferb…. And most recently Spiderman (I know not a Disney character, but his newest obsession- and since Marvel was purchased by Disney, it’s still Disney to me now, lol). Aside form Spiderman… he LOVES all things Disney like me.


Up next….our baby…who isn’t such a baby anymore 

Thank you all for joining. I was very ansy about posting as previously stated. I'm anxiously awaiting confirmation back for our accommodations on this trip. Should get word back by the end of the week. Which are a result of Jacks special needs on this trip...more on that as we move along. Tomorrow or the next day I'll try and post about the baby.

Congratulations on your new job!

I hope Jack is feeling better now.
It never fails, once a year my son Levi always throws up at school. It's always been after recess. From running, playing too hard & getting overheated I think. He is always better after a couple of hours.

I'm going to be a neurofeedback technician. I'm very excited, the center deals with all ages from little to adult, and all parts of the spectrum from very mild to severe. So I'm looking forward to learning and growing. Thanks for coming over. Looking forward to meeting you.

Thanks, he is better now, I came to find out today that my suspicions were correct, Jack also ate some things last week that he shouldn't have. So his body was defending against the bad things he ate, with the heat, and his stress.

Kathy
I'm very much looking forward to my new job, even more now, for reasons I can not say at the moment. But will share when I am allowed. I got to work with three clients last week, one teen, one adult, and one child. The child was more severe, very limited language, but such a sweatheart. I loved it.


I'm also going to be teaching religion to Jacks class at his school, waiting to get more details on that.


Today we were 30 minutes early for school Both my kids got very ansy having to sit in the very loud cafeteria. I will need to have Jacks headphones ready for him in the future if he ever gets dropped off early once he switches to full time kindergarten.

update coming up next...

Hi Jessica!

Finally all caught up now. *sshh, don't tell, I should be cleaning the bathrooms at the moment*.

You're plans are coming along really well, you're very organised! You're boys are looking so big now!

ADRs are looking good - we've got Crystal Palace booked for my birthday breakfast too! Really looking forward to it!
