Thank you!! We are so excited!! We just can not wait until we get our dates. We know it will be September or later because Lucas has his chemo until the end of July.

I noticed you are from Nashville. That is where Lucas goes for Treatment. He goes to the Children's Hospital In Nashville. It is about 1 hour 45 minutes from our home (depending on traffic). Lucas has fallen in love with Nashville.

I had to send some missing paperwork to MAW today. My husband always likes to wait until the last day possible to do anything so we had to send a copy of his new driver's license to MAW. While I was on the phone getting the address I was able to ask about our dates. One part of Lucas wish for Disney was to do the Behind the Scenes Magic of the Railroad tour (I believe that is what it is called), but you have to be 10 years old to go. But MAW has put in a special request to see if they would make an exception for him. He is only eight. But he sure loves trains and could tell them exactly how those steam engines work. So I was able to ask the question about our dates and she said that we should have an answer within the month. They are waiting on the doctor to sign off (our primary doc is out of town alot). We know that he will not have a problem with it, because we had already discussed it with him. She had shared that September is a great month to go. So that is what we are hoping for!

Also we have found out that Lucas' school is having a special program for him on the last day of school. They are going to have an assembly and they are asking everyone in school to wear Disney themed clothing and the 5th grade chorus is going to sing Disney songs. The school is going to have a penny war or a dollar war (they are not sure which yet) and make a donation in Lucas's honor for MAW. They are wanting to surprise him. The MAW volunteers are going to be with him that day accepting the donation.

I was just excited and I have felt like all of you have become friends and I wanted to share it with you. Thank you for listening!!!!

Hi There! Looking forward to hearing more!

If you have the opportunity, when you are in Nashville, stop by the Disney Store in Opry Mills...and ask if Lynn is there...I work mostly on weekends, but occasionally will work an evening or two during the week! Would love to say Hi! in person.

Good luck with everything!

Lynn

We know exactly where the Disney Store is. We were just there on Monday looking for a Mickey Mouse shirt for Lucas. He is wanting to get ready for Disney. So I told him we will stop in there again before our trip. So will make sure that we stop in and say hello!

Lucas had a very exciting day at school. His school has been having penny wars between the classes but he did not realize that they were taking up the money to be donated to Make A Wish. They had an assembly today and his principal came in his Mouse Ears and Mouse gloves and another teacher came in dressed up like Winnie the Pooh. They started sharing about Lucas and what he goes through each day and that his Wish had been approved and that we are waiting for dates for Disney. Then his principal had his Make a Wish Volunteer come up and then Lucas. He was so surprised! Then they donated the money in Lucas' name to Make A Wish!!!! It was such a special day. One of the most special moments of the day was when I went to Lucas' class to get him his teacher said that a second grader that did not know Lucas wanted to give him a chocolate rose that she won that day. I thought how sweet!! What a blessing!!! We have been very blessed that Lucas' school has supported him so well. Lucas had been working very hard collecting his pennies because he wanted his class to win. After it was over he said I did not know I was doing that for me.

I just feel very blessed and wanted to share!!!

We finally found one. A very nice lady went to back and found us one. There was not much left by the time we arrived Monday afternoon. He got the blue one (that is his favorite color) but thank you for asking.
