Ha Ha Girls? I love it! And those figurines are so sweet!

I love Voyage of the Little Mermaid. It is so well done! My boys even enjoy it.

You know a cool thing about this wedding? Kristen/xoktenox and tinkgurl (doesn't like to use her real name on DIS) met right here on our reports and became friends, and Kristen was in her wedding! I love seeing DIS friendships form and grow into something very special.

I also think that those precious moments figurines are very cute, I just wish I had somewhere to put them. I think I need a bigger house!

Congrats to Tinkgurl, I hope you are having a magical day!
Jill needs a bigger house, too. If she could have walk-in closets in the girls' room and a bonus room with storage space, she'd be in good shape. Her house is nice, and she has a great backyard, but with each additional child, space becomes more of an issue.

So glad to have you along as you earn your ears!

We haven't had too many complaints from the guys about it. I think because they know it's a cool place to sit down...and because it doesn't last too long. I, on the other hand, would be happy if it was a longer show.


***********************************

I had to run some errands today, and when I was in one of the stores browsing (read: looking for a flamingo ) I heard a voice ask if my name would happen to be Ms. Blank. I said I would happen to be that very person. It was one of my former students. He graduated high school back in May. He was a little thicker and had more hair, but I could still see that little third grade face, after he told me who he was.

We talked a little, and I asked him what he remembered about his time in my class. He said he remembered that my class was fun and that I liked him. He said his second grade teacher had not liked him (his point of view), and that it felt good the next year that I liked him. I am glad he felt that way. It was good to see him. He said he doesn't have any career calling to him right now, so he is just going to take general classes at the junior college near here. Not a lot of our kids go to college, and some don't even finish high school, so I am glad to know that he plans to keep going further. Seeing former students - one of the happy moments of being a teacher.

I love that Bella calls the villains "ha ha" girls! They do all have that evil laugh!

Adorable Jim Shore and Precious Moments pieces.

I bet Tinkgirl's wedding was beautiful!

I love seeing former students, too. My favorite story from open house this year was when the brother of one of my current students brought his sister to open house. He was such a pill when I taught him, and now, he is a junior at GA Tech. He definitely matured and got his act together which was nice to see.

Yep. It's nice to know that for one school year, you made learning enjoyable for a kid. It's also interesting to see what interests they decide to pursue.

The evil laugh is it, indeed.

I bet sitting on the beach at Poly will be a beautiful follow-up to that wedding, too.

I had one of my summer camp students tell me not too long ago that he realizes now what a brat he was. He was such a hot-headed kid, and he did somtimes fit the description of bratty. Not real often, but when it came to playing kickball or wiffle ball, he was so intense and kind of a punk about it. He couldn't stand it when some of the little girls (who didn't even want to be playing) didn't do everything perfectly. He ended up moving on from wiffle ball to college baseball (at Kentucky) and is now playing with a minor league team. I guess we have to keep our eyes on the prize with our students and know that they might have bratty moments - or unmotivated or loud and obnoxious or defiant or a plethora of other aggravating qualities - but most likely, they will grow out of those and be good, productive adults.

On this Disney day, we were going here.



We planned to do the English version.

You might be surprised, or not, but it was raining.





Tropical Storm Debby was not being nice.

That didn't stop these girls from having fun, though.

Bella can still dance in the rain.



We sloshed our way to Norway.





Pictures with Belle to start the morning. Since the Photopass pictures will show the perfect pose, I thought I'd get one of the 'action' - the Photopass person waiting on the guest to take a picture.



Very castle-like.



The buffet part of the meal.







This was the second day on the job for our server.



She brought us this.



The hash brown casserole is sooooo good!

Here come the royal girls!



You probably looked at the blurry Aurora, but go back and look at Bella's face instead. She's delighted.





Again, Bella is totally into the moment.

Next, Snow White appeared.







And from under the sea, Miss Ariel Girl.



I don't know, but she looks like she would make a good step-sister with that expression.





There was a parade, but I didn't get a good picture of the girls.







I thought this cabinet was cool.



Back out in the elements, Jill's rain gear attacked her!

This was the norm for the first few days - ponchos and covered strollers.





Time for pictures with Mickey and friends.



Bella is no longer afraid to join in the fun.









I thought Orville and WIlbur were the first airplane guys, but....













Now for the tall guy.



That was our first two events for the morning - food and character fun.

Next time: The Seas

Bella is so cute in those pics! She has came along way. I love the girls' skirts also. Epcot looks empty! Was it early or because of the rain?
Congratulations, Tinkgurl! It is so exciting to be at the Poly for her honeymoon.
Oh, speaking of trips, we get to go at Thanksgiving. Jason did get a job. He will be teaching 8th grade science at a middle school 2 minutes from our house. We are going on break. I have a conference and we are staying at the GF again. I am excited!

The girls look so cute in all of the princess pictures!!! I love their skirts, they're very Ariel! I'm glad you enjoyed Akershus, we thought it was a great breakfast too! DF also loved those cheesey potatoes!

It's so great seeing Bella so comfortable with both face characters and fur characters. A shame it had to be so rainy though. I love the picture of Snow White talking to Bella, she is just so attentive to them. (: Glad to hear you enjoyed Akershus, it looks like a nice place for breakfast!

Wow, I can't believe how empty EPCOT was that morning especially since it looks like this was after the park opened. Great pictures at Character Connection! I see my boy Pluto was good to Bella and Brooklynn. Good boy.

Can't wait to read more!

CONGRATULATIONS TINKGURL ON YOUR WEDDING!!! I'm sure you were a beautiful bride!

A honeymoon at Poly sounds lovely! Best wishes for a wonderful trip!

Did I miss the nursery reveal on FB? I do not know what theme Jill went with for Sophie's room.

I love how excited Bella was at the Akershus bkfst! She has the sweetest look on her face.
The girls outfits are adorable....perfect for a ride in the seas.

It's so nice that you met up with a former student and he brightened up your day.

Did you find the flamingo?

We are all in a very happy mood today around here...it's packing day!!!
