Oops! You are absolutely right! Sorry for the major confusion. We have 3 more days before we can reserve the tickets. Sorry everyone!

Tickets may be reserved (with a maximum of 10) up to 60 days before the date of the intended visit.

You're quite welcome, but I have to say that all I know about Google docs and spreadsheets comes from DISer Burma.

I have been struggling to come up with ideas for our first FE exchange. Obviously, looking for something small and lightweight so I don't need to bring a whole suitcase just for gifts... Without telling me what you are doing (don't want to spoil the fun), looking for ideas on what others have done in previous FEs with this many people and luggage restrictions. Thanks in advance!

We have given pens or pencils from the departure port plus postcards from the departure port plus a local area candy from the departure port. We were in the city a couple of days ahead and so many times people overlook the departure port as a port. So we thought we old give something from there. I just packed ziplock baggies and packaged them at the hotel before boarding the ship and had made business cards to put with them with the recipients dis name and cabin number so we would know where to deliver. The candy was all individually wrapped but made in the area.

Another time we made coasters but they took a awhile to make... A Martha Stewart craft. But they were lightweight and small... We did two per family.

I found this thread to be really helpful. Just seeing other people's ideas is great. I figured mine out after poking around here.

Great links!

By the way, congrats on Aiden's first communion!

I teach 2nd grade CCD classes, and my students will be going through the ceremony during the 1st two weekends in May.

Very proud!

Someone shared this over on Facebook, in case you haven't seen it.. Only magnets on the doors and no over the door holders.

Thank you! We are very excited for him. He will be doing his on May 11th. That's great that you teach the classes. I'm sure it will be very exciting to see your students have theirs.

I counted 48 DISers but some DISers have more than one cabin listed, so maybe that's where the difference was? I counted 110 adults and 51 children.

Our FE's are ready to be labeled so we'll get those finished this weekend coming up. We got ours done for the next cruise over the weekend, but there are about half as many participants for that one

The next thing I need to do is make a calendar page for DH and the boys to put where we'll be and what we have scheduled on each day so they will know - they are starting to ask and pay attention as it's getting closer. We leave 7 weeks from tomorrow, and the boys have 6 weeks until school is out 25 more classroom days plus 3 exam days). Then they will have one week at home where I'll be scrambling around packing and whoosh, we leave!

Hi, Everyone!

We still have 7 more spots left open for the children ages 4 to 13 to participate.

We need at least 15 children to have the Chocolate Factory to carry out the class for our group.

If we do not have at least 15 children for this event by May 18th, I will have to cancel the event.

So, please pass the word along...

For more details, please send me PM.

Thanks!
