Wooohhoooo!!! Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh!! That's awesome!!

I sure haven't "seen" you much. But understand as you start the journey of homeschooling. Let me know if you want anymore tips, or just need a pep talk!

HA! His way of "handling it" will no doubt be vastly different from your idea of "handling it".

Yeah I think I'm going to be a weekend DISer now, during the week by the time I get home I'm exhausted, and then checking over Jacks worksheets and helping him with other work and our reading and discussions just leave me with little energy to stay up.

I'm super excited, I think you all did the half marathon in January one year right? I just barely survived my first 5k, so hope I can build up enough endurance in the next year to complete the princess half.

Yep our plans changed several times- to June and back to March, and now we are set on June. We are going to do March in 2011 assuming the princess half is scheduled again. I still need to get caught up on your TR and PTR, that will happen hopefully tomorrow.


in my news: this weekend I plan to firm up our dates and book our package. My parents are looking to buy a trailer and so are planning to stay at the campsite on Disney property, so now my Great Aunt is going to stay with my little family and we will need to get a handicap room for her to have a walk in shower, and to try and get a good location for her to not have to walk too much (though we will have a wheel chair for her). Ok that is all, I still need to post my hidden mickeys for the next park and then I'll let you all know our set dates sometime this weekend too.

Hi Jessica. Sorry haven't been out here much. Are you homeschooling?

Sounds like you have a lot of trips planned. I'm debating getting off my butt and trying the half princess maration and thought 2011 would be good, so I could prepare for a year.

Yes temporarily homeschooling, it's harder since I'm also working, so it's a team homeschooling effort. My Mom is doing worksheets with him during the day and letting him continue to do his computer games which have learning in them. Then at night I have expanded on just reading a story, we read the same story all week and do things related to the story, and we added in bible stories and spanish words. The curriculum at the private school we are trying to get him into is bigger than what we have doing.

You should totally train for the princess half for 2011, that would be great to run together or collapse together Either way it would be fun

We are booked!!!!! :-)

Hey all we are booked, I'm so excited, we decided on:

Me, DH, Jack, Joey, and my Great Aunt Bea will be staying at All Star Movies (I know a lot of people don't like the All Stars, but we are so excited about the possibility of a Buzz & Woody room). We requested a handicap accessible room with walk in shower and bench for my Aunt.

We are staying Saturday June 5- Saturday June 12. And we will be on the quick service dining plan, but we are planning a few table service meals that we will pay out of pocket. With the moods of my boys and their reactions to characters recently we decided that this will be the best dining situation for us this first trip. Plus we will be bringing many food items for Jack and his special diet. And we are getting 7 day base tickets.

My Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother in Law, and Niece will be staying at the campsite in the trailer they are planning to purchase. They are staying in a preferred spot with full hook up. They will also be on the quick service dining plan and are getting 7 day base tickets. They are however staying Friday June 4- Saturday June 12. And also plan on at least one table service meal.

Ok now for you mathematicians or just you people that pay close attention to details, yes you counted correctly and we have once again become a Grand Gathering. My sister and her little family are not 100% for going, but the chances are pretty high. So we are planning for the ten of us.

That is about all I have for you, still working on my hidden mickey quest updates and time is slipping away from me, I feel like I have a lot of time but also feel like I don't have so much time to decide on those table service ADR's. So I'll be working on those in the next couple weeks as well.

I think for a trip with kids, going with an all-stars is a great option. The theming looks super fun- so I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Good plan to go with QS this time. Very curious to find out what TS places you've come up!! Any character meals

They are going to LOVE the Fort!!! It is so quiet and peaceful, yet with a lot, and I do mean a ton!, of stuff to do and enjoy. Make sure to take time to go to the stables, relax at the newly renovated pool, get a Giddy up and Go meal, the campfire. I love it there!

I do hope they can join you, but make sure to schedule alone time with just your family too. We made the mistake of letting some assume we'd be together the whole time. It was a disaster!!

Will you do any GG special acitivities???

Hi Jessica - I've only read through 5 pages so far, but wanted to say Hi and let you know I'll be following along. I'm also a mom of 2 boys - my older DS9 was diagnosed with autism (PDD) when he was 2. DS6 may or may not have Asperger's - nobody wants to commit!

On our first two Disney trips with DS9 we were dealing with multiple food intolerances and Disney did an amazing job accomodating his dietary needs. It's an amazing place for special kids - that's why we keep going back!

I can't wait to read more as your plans continue to come together.

All caught up!! Glad to hear you finally booked!

Driving or flying? You mentioned flying somewhere along the way, but that may have just been for the CA trip?? Anyway - We brought a lot of food with us for DS9 on two of our trips - which was tricky post 9/11. But we did manage to be able to bring a cooler full of food on the plane with us so just let me know if you need any advice on flying with food.

Yay, you're booked! Verrry exciting! ASMovies was a lot of fun, the boys will love it! Can't wait to hear more about the camp site, that sounds like quite the adventure itself.

You're booked!

There will be at least one character meal. And there is a possibility of a GG activity but we haven't "officially" discussed it yet. I had wanted to camp out at the campsite, so glad my parents are, I do know fishing is on our to do list, as it always was, so now we'll have to see what else we do, and yes there will be many times that we are not all together. I made that very clear even when planning to only go with my parents.

We are driving, it's about 13 hours I believe, so we do plan to stay over somewhere on the way down and back. But we are taking the backseat out of our van to take our double jogger stroller, food, toys, etc to keep them entertained on the way down, and while we are there. I tend to over pack so we will probably use up the whole backseat, hope we have room for whatever decides to come home with us. As I'm sure we will bring some friends (mainly Pooh and Mickey) home with us.
