So, today was our last day before a week of break. About 10 this morning, a girl came into the office and came up to me and whispered; "hey Mr. Blockhead, guess where we're going over spring break??" I said, "where." She said "Disney World." I went "really?? That will be a cool vacation." Then, I whispered to her, "guess where I'm going on spring break?" She said, "where?" I said "Disney World." She got all wide eyed and said "really?" I said "yep, sure am." Naturally, she had no idea where they were staying, so I told her that we were staying at Pop and to keep an eye out for us. The cool thing is that since I've been in administration, I've gone to Disney 5 or 6 times. EVERY time down, I've seen multiple kids and families from the school(s) that I've been working at. When I was an elementary school principal, it was always a big deal for the kid to see the principal. They always give me the, "hey, you mean you actually don't live at the school" look. The middle school kids react like, "oh, it's him." It would be one thing if we lived in a large place, but we are a VERY small town, and to actually bump into folks in HUGE World of Disney that are from your small home town is pretty neat.

Lets all sing it...I know your thinking it.

Itís a world of laughter, a world of tears
Itís a world of hopes, and a world of fears
Thereís so much that we share that itís time weíre aware
Itís a small world after all!

Itís a small world after all!
Itís a small world after all!
Itís a small world after all!
Itís a small, small world!

I waited until March to take them down and never heard another word about it. We actually considered going out and buying all the extra c9 bulbs when they went on clearance so we could just keep changing the colors as the year went on, red and white for valentines, green and yellow for St Patrick's, red white and blue for the 4th,............

I love messing with the home owners people.
Classic. I hate those homeowners associations as well. What color your drape backings have to be, type of mailbox you can have, etc. You should be able to buy a house and do what you want as long as it isn't painted pink and purple!

Even if it wasn't GKTW, I'm sure that we could come up with a worthy cause.

Thanks for all the great work you did designing it. I want one before my June trip.
I'm in with the charity donation, and inspired by the support shown by our little club...

Mijo, great job on the shirt, just let us know how to proceed. Maybe we can get an Admin to put a sticky up so the order info doesn't get lost when the Club III thread get's locked? Just an idea...

I have a link to a shirt design in my signature now. Nate will probably do the same as the two designs are slightly different. I might also put a link for a "front only" shirt. I'll probably work on some instructions for personalizing the shirt and put a link for that, too. Thanks! Nate and I enjoyed doing this and, hopefully, we'll be seeing DIS Dad's T shirts at WDW soon!

That used to happen to me when I was a Cub Scout leader. When one of my boys saw me at a store or somewhere, he would get this shocked look and quick tell his mom!

Yeah... I would have been a skeptic too since it was 4/1!! I'm going to try and get DW in a DVC tour this year
I left for work on 4/2, having handed DW the "Dreams" book i'd ordered 2 years ago. She looks, says, "um, never mind on DVC" and i leave for work.
i got home at 3:30, and she she said, "I think we'll need 300 points per year. Disney with a big group one year, then a smaller vacation to the beach the next."
WHA...?
Either way, taking the tour in Dec seems like it's going to happen!

RELAXING! WOW! I'm mulching and then we'll be getting ready for our family Easter dinner tomorrow. Plus, who knows what else? I took a vacation day yesterday and worked 10x harder than I do at work. It's a good thing I have a few vacation days planned for some fun stuff.

That's a great slogan! And one that has been around for a while. I might go with that one myself. Good thinking!

I just ordered my DIS DAD's T-shirt! I used the slogan "Off Topic Since 2007" ~ Great idea UncleScrooge! Thanks!

I had to get my relaxing in early.
I've been at Mrs. AJRitz' office since before Noon trying to get a bunch of office tech stuff done - migrating a server and preventative maintenance on a desktop machine. Looks like I'll be putting in an eight or nine hour day at the office today.

It was too nice outside here in the StL, so I was working on DW's garden (all the work is done. She just needs to put the veggies into the ground.)
Also, glad you liked the slogan. Once I get a little closer to time, I'll order mine. I just hope I can find the link in August!
(On a personal note: I'm not really Scrooge-like at all! I just liked Duck Tales a lot, and I wasn't sure LaunchPad McQuack would have been a good DIS name.)

And for any beer-loving midwestern DISdads looking for plans on World Cup opening weekend:

Another bus accident, this time a bus hit the back of a SUV. Bus driver was charged with careless driving, bus driver is 81

I know they have like 300 buses & 1200 drivers, accidents are bound to happen, but I think they should test the driving skills every so often :confused
