I'm sorry about the baby sitting, sounds like you made a wise decision though.

The sea racer was really fun! It was pretty neat to see everything from a different point of view!

I know I'll miss the baby, but gotta focus on mine & DD's school stuff!! I'll still probably get her sometimes and do stuff with her, though. We took her to Chuck E Cheese's this past weekend, and she was so sweet! Maybe I'll post a few pics of that soon!

The Disney College Program would be amazing!!! A friend of mine son did it and became a friend of Peter Pan...

You know how we "crazy dis-ers" are with our cameras!!!

I can't wait to learn more about the program! I would do it myself, if I could afford to leave everything for a few months!

I am so excited to see that DD is interested in the College program!

It was really fun! You and Claire should do it!!!

I will be very interested in learning more about the College Program!

A few "happenings" again!



Thought I'd share a few pics of a recent trip to Chuck E Cheese's with the baby!





















We went to the Disney College Program presentation tonight!!

It was very exciting and interesting! A DCP coordinator did a lot of speaking and showing videos. About 6 DCP participants were there to tell their stories of being in the program. It was pretty neat to be able to actually talk to Disney people vs. just looking at the info online. I had a chat with a girl that did the DCP at WDW and DL! I asked her would I be too old to do it, since I am in college! She said no, but I'd just have to be roomies with a lot of younger college kids! We got a laugh out of that! I enjoyed the presentation and I think it just made my DD even more interested in it!!

We didn't get any kind of brochures or booklets or anything. We went in, and signed in on computers, and they said they will email us more info.



We are planning another day trip to Atlanta, and to go to the Disney Stores there, since those are the closest to us!! We haven't been in a few months, so we're excited to go back! Can't wait to get away for the day, especially since it will be baby-free! I am starting to miss the little munchkin,though. I'll probably try to get her soon and take her on a little out-ing!


Coming up: Back to the TR, checking into SSR!!!

Oh, she looks so cute. The one of her holding the tickets is too funny...."so I can get a prize with these tickets?"

How exciting about the DCP presentation. I would want to go too. I'm a big KID.

What fun she is too cute.

I regret not applying for the Disney college program. That would have been a really fun experience. Does DD think she'll apply for it?

She did really good at Chuck E Cheese's that day! It was really cute. I actually kept her yesterday and she was really sweet, but I'm glad I don't have her all the time now!

I think going to the DCP presentation made DD even more interested. She was even talking about it today, and said she would like to start her pre-requisites at a college in the Fall, then do the program in the Spring (if she got accepted). She seems to be getting overwhelmed by the college stuff! She keeps changing her mind, even today saying she was thinking of going into Travel & Tourism, but she also is interested in health care! I told her not to worry too much about it, but at least narrow it down to a couple of majors that interest her, because she sees what I did, went back to school for a different major........20 years later, after graduating!!

After a fun filled day at the Polynesian, we decided to head over to SSR to check in. We were staying there for 2 nights (on rented DVC points).


We first noticed how big the resort was, as we had a hard time finding our room. This would be a repeated pattern for those 2 nights!


Here's a few pictures as we arrived, and our room!

































View outside the door:








Inside for a few more:









I made up the sofa into the bed:




After a little bit of resting time, we were ready to head on back out!!!



Coming up: Our 1/2 day at HS!!!!!

Loving the trip report. Oh how I do remember going back to college as an adults!! I am thinking and praying for you. It is tough and I did it 3 times...once to get my RN(worked full time 2 sememsters) , once to get my BSN( I worked full time) and my masters degress working3/4 to full time.

Keep your chin up and keep plugging and remember DIS can be an outlet and respite from the school craziness.

Thanks!! It is pretty hard! But I have actually been looking into continuing on, after I finish this.
(But I just don't know if I can do it, I'm getting too old for this! )

We headed out to HS even though we didn't have much time, as half of the day already passed. It was even getting cloudy, as you can tell in this pic:




A few random pics:












We went to see 3D Muppets show. Love this!





We went to see the Indiana Jones show for the first time. It was just OK. Not really into that much & haven't even seen the movie!






Came across the green Army man!




Went to the Animation Building, but it was pretty crowded, so we just a pic with Mickey:







We were ready to eat, so we went to Pizza Planet!






This was the first time we came across the umbrella, so DD had a few "striking the pose" moments!




Another first: This is the first time I've noticed this prop from the movie Splash. I thought it was pretty neat, but made me feel old!!!







Next, we made our way to "One Man's Dream".

























Continuing...

DD wanted to ride ToT, so I walked through the line with her. I'm still too chicken to do it!!

It was just a 30 minute wait.





After she did that, it was getting late, so we sat & rested and got an ice cream from Scoops!






We ended our day with the late showing of Fantasmic! Love it!!




That was a quick park day!!



Coming up: Our last full day!

You got a lot done even with half a day. Haven't seen the Indiana Jones movies! I love them. I've spent a couple hours looking at all the memorabilia in One Man's Dream, I think it's so cool.

Great pics of SSR. What section were you in?

SSR looks lovely. I love yoru view and you can see a peek of a treehouse villa too. how exciting.
You got quite a bit done for only having a short time at DHS.

I can't wait. I am under a month now and it's getting a bit more real!
I still wish you could come down then.

Because of all the busy-ness, I've been away from the Dis again!
But I am hoping to get caught up this week & weekend, since Fall Break is coming up, and I'll actually have time to catch up on everything!

It's been crazy, with school as usual, and even a few job interviews (saying a prayer & keeping fingers crossed for a possible hospital job!!)


Until I get my TR caught up, I thought I'd share something with ya'll.......






What could be possibly as addicting as being on the Dis????????

.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

Watching a "Giraffe Cam"!!!!!!



I have been totally addicted to this lately. At our local zoo, we have had a new giraffe baby born! It is the sweetest thing! The zoo has a live camera set up, for the opportunity for everyone to see live shots of the giraffes, in the barn and out in the exhibit area. It's been viewed throughout the country and the world. We made a trip to the zoo after the baby was a couple days old, and got some pics.




Here's the live camera website:


http://www.earthcam.com/usa/southcar...am=giraffe_int




Here's the video of the birth:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9KZTT-wmDI&feature=plcp



And here's a few pics!













































More TR updates coming up!!! :
