take you time posting I'm in for the long haul (and who knows maybe I won't fall so far behind like I did on all the other threads I was following)...

I'm not going to lie--it was stressful! We had a feeling it would be going into the trip.

We are fine about the cruise--it would be nice but not necessary at this point. We will go on one eventually. The fall trip will be so much fun!! I hope it works out. Financially it is fine but it will depend on my doctoral program.

Moving will definitely be hard on the whole family. We are approaching it as if I get into one program, that is where we go. If I get accepted into multiple programs, than it becomes a family decision where we weigh all of our options.

I know what you mean--I am so far behind on other threads. I hope to get caught up this weekend, but I don't know if that will be possible since I am so far behind on so many threads.

Yay for the potential DVC buy in the future. Maybe you could look into renting points for Oct? My Hubby has agreed to the fall trip so I am putting up my ticker-HURRAY. All our little and bigger girls are going to have a blast together-and chase Nikki's boys all over I also started my Sep TR-link is in my siggy if you get a chance to check it out.
Really it is fine--it was a little shocking I brought it up but when I really starting adding the cost of everything that could happen next year, it was a bit shocking. There is a program at University of Arizona.

Yay!! I am glad your DH has agreed to the trip. Mine is apprehensive to say the least--not about the money or timing--more of the amount of people we are looking at seeing. I reassured it would not be a trip like this last one though. We would all have our own separate plans too.

Thanks for the pointing out the new TR. I hope to catch up on it this weekend, I did subscribe to it though.

I too am almost 100% sure I am turning down a trip. Now, that may change as we get closer to the date, but...for now I am just saying no. Dh is going to Florida in March. I would love to say yes, but having just been there and the fact dd is getting married in May...I think it is for the best that I say no. It is hard though. There is a part of me that screams "go, have fun" but then there is the part that is hitting me on the head saying "be responsible, you know what you have on your plate, take care of that first." I think that until the part of my using violence to make a point stops with the violence...I won't be going on any trips anytime soon. (well, at least any big trips)
I wish, and I almost did say yes, but then I started thinking a little too much. Seriously, it is fine. We will be looking forward to our October trip.

Hopefully you will make it back sooner than you think!!

I had a feeling when I read your trip title, that the "Never Again" part was a reference to never traveling with such a large group again (or so many family members...?)

Love the picture of the three of y'all in front of the castle at the end of your first day!
Michelle to my TR! (I don't think I have welcomed you yet.)

I have not revealed the never again, other than it does not apply to Disney and we would be open to driving again at some point.

You are doing the right thing. Last year was super tough for us but right around the corner was some amazing times. The girls will be so happy to play with Emily, Lilian, Eva, Avery, and Cayley again. Less than a year to go!!!

I'm happy to hear that you are considering DVC down the road. If you have the same experience that we have had, you won't be disappointed.
Hey Leanne. Your head would be spinning if you went through everything were discussing and pricing out. The cruise was first, but then we decided to switch it to a trip to Disney instead, we were debating between 4 nights or 7 nights between three resorts. Right when we had made a tentative decision, I threw the curb ball.

October trip, we have had it booked now for quite awhile, shortly after they extended the free dining out. I think it will be so much fun! DH is a little apprehensive because of this last trip going down with other people. I am trying to reassure him this upcoming trip would be nothing like our last trip. I can only imagine how the girls would love to be a Disney together. Lilian wanted Emily and Ms. Wendy to come so much with this last trip I can just picture how hyper they all would be together.

We really think the DVC would be worth it for our family. I know it is not for everyone, but it seems like it would be a good fit for us.

Sometimes Rebecca! We are fine with the decision so it will all work how it is suppose to in the long run. We are firm believers in that. We do have a trip to look forward to--this time next year we will be at Disney!! It is really cool because we will be there for the 40th anniversary of MK's opening.
