No we were not able to make it. We were all tired and just wanted to get home. My husband said I knew you were tired when you did not want to go shopping.

I told him you that had shared with me about the sale. He knows I love the store and he said oh no not another connection. I said yes isn't it wonderful!!!

How is everyone doing in your house? (Both Lucus & Alex doing well?)

Was this past trip Lucus' last chemo, or does he have one more? (Hoping you guys will get dates soon!

Eveyone is doing well. The heat has been bad this weekend so I have been trying to convince the boys it is best inside. Both boys are doing well. Lucas has been extremely hyper this week. He had chemo on Monday and he does a week of steroid. 40mg a day for five days. We just finished the steroids and needless to say he is bouncing.

We have two more treatments (we pray). One July 6th and the last one should be July 27th. We then go back for one day of scans.

We sure hope we have our dates soon. I talked to our MAW volunteers in May and they were saying we should have them by the middle of June but we are still waiting and boy is it getting harder each day. We have been lucky that the entire process has went quickly well until this point. My concern is my work. The time off is first come first serve. There can only be one person off at a time. So we have given them the dates I know is safe. But someone can pick those dates while I wait. But I know it all work out just fine. So keep your fingers cross that we can get our dates soon!!!!

It will work out! You will get dates, and they will work! I have faith!

Glad to hear everyone is doing well.

I would definitely call them...maybe later this week...if you don't have dates yet.

I am not sure they realize how difficult it is for some parents to get off work. They sometimes think...and they should be right...that a Make a Wish trip should give you preference on your time off.

It would be best for everyone involved to only do the paperwork on the dates one time...so I would imagine MAW would want to be aware that you are afraid the vacation time for your dates will be taken if you wait too long.

Hopefully you will know soon, though!!

And hopefully this heat breaks, soon, too. It is really hot down here, too. I am melting.

Thank you for the advice. With any other thing I would be calling but it is funny how with MAW being so generous and all I just feel bad about calling and bothering them. I know that sounds silly because with any other thing I would be calling. But you have a good point that it would be easier to get a date and set than to have to change everything. Do you suggest going through our MAW volunteer or calling our local chapter?

Yes we are melting down here. I was complaining about it over the weekend and someone shared at least it is not the ice storm. It seems everyone in our town is still feeling the trama of the ice storm.

Thank you again for your advice

I am SOOOOOO excited!!!!

I am so going to be in Disney over those dates!!!!

Your park days will probably be Sept 6-10th and I will be in Disney from Sept 4-9th. We will have to figure out a way to have a little DIS meet! In the past I have come to GKTW for breakfast to meet up with folks, so that I don't take up any precious park time. Totally up to you, of course!! You may not even want to meet any crazy DISers.


Do you know how to change your title so you can add your dates?

You can go to your very first post and click EDIT, then GO ADVANCE, and then just retype or type over the title in the first box at the top. Then click SAVE and you are done.

I will change it on the Wish Trippers thread, too!! That is great news! Feel free to tell the group over there, too!

We would love to meet up with you then! That sounds exciting We can work out a time and a place. My son would love to meet you I just know it.

So I am needing help on planning which park on which days. I know that we will be arriving on a holiday weekend so I did not know if the MK would be wild over the weekend or what. So please help advise. I know I have to be careful because I like to do it all and I know I will have to slow down and stop and smell the flowers. I know my boys will love the GKTW and I may not get them to leave there. My DS loves trains and he may never leave GKTW.

Thank you for letting me know how to make the change. Again if you can give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Oh we would love to meet up with you. I know our next trip is Monday but that will be a fast one. So hopefuelly on or around July 27th we will be down there. Maybe we can work something out then. Then we will have a long day in August because Lucas will have all of his scans. So we usually let him going shoppping after that because of all of the stress. So yes I would love to work out something to meet you.

It is really hard to tell this far out...I know it seems like it should be easy to tell, but the hours keep changing for the parks.

Looks like your park days will be Monday - Friday of that week.

Sun Night- Not sure when you get in, but try not to miss the Candyland Party. It is a cool playground and probably a fun party!

Monday is Labor day. So I would stay away from the MK that day, for sure. It will probably be busy all over Disney. Mon AM the Disney Characters should come to GKTW. So you could spend some time with them and get pictures, etc. That is really fun. You could use your Sea World ticket, spend time at GKTW, go to Universal (which could be fairly busy, too).

Tuesday will be a GREAT Disney day...supposed to be very low crowds since everyone is going home after Labor Day weekend. I would make that a long Disney day...depending on what parks you want to attend, I might even make that the longest Disney day? (We will be at DHS this day and my friend is trying out for American Idol.)

Wednesday - I would probably do another Disney day. (We will be at MK early this morning for Crystal Palace meal and then doing MK that morning and leaving after lunch to go back home.)

Thursday - I would make this a Universal Day and a short day so you can make it back to Christmas at GKTW.

Friday - Your last Disney Day


But...I am not sure what parades you are interested in.

Would you like for me to do a full planner for you? If so, PM me and I can work on it this weekend. I need to finish up my Sept plans, too!
