I could smell them from here.

Agreed. Even better as they get older and learn to play.

I'm to in good enough shape to play competitively, but I still get there with a few friends (non Dis dads). I'll play someone new occasionally, who always thnk they have an easy win because of my size. They get ticked when I beat them.

Good planning.

Glad things are moving forward in the right direction.

I could live with MK being alcohol free, but for me, I can't vote against alcohol. It's a rule from of my catholic classes
And I thought 100 for soccer was bad lol,maybe I should be glad DD didn't want to do tap anymore

Either way the alcohol thing doesn't bother me, I can go to a park and not drink but if I'm having dinner at BOG then I may or may not have a beer

Ok y'all may call me crazy but I'm thinking about booking a long weekend trip to DL at the end of Oct, does anyone know if 2 park days and a Halloween party night is enough to see pretty much all there is to see? I have free round trip tix, I was thinking about going during dec, but trying to decide if the fireworks are worth going earlier( big NBC fan) I know HM is the same through Halloween and Christmas so the fireworks is the determining factor of when we go, any ideas or thoughts?

Lol no, yes def meeting in wdw, I think if I do DL with DD I might do Dec, would love to see the light and HM holiday will still be going, I have 2 rd trip flights so just thinking how to use it, but all I've looked at is expensive, 2 day stay and park tix is about the same as our 4 night stay and park tix at wdw,

We have been told by the principal who has been through this with her own child) to prepare ourselves to hear things that we do not want to here, and that we will more than likely feel as though we are in front of a firing squad. She also said that this will take upwards of 2 hours to go over the information that has been gathered. Say a prayer for us that maybe it wont be as hurtful to hear the things they will say and that we will be able to use the information to help Ethan and get him whatever help it takes to make him feel good about himself (he has a very low self esteem) and learn at the same level and speed as the other children. I know that we have a prayer and praise thread but I wanted to bring it here instead where I feel the traffic might be greater. Thanks guys!!!
Yes, PPT's can feel like a firing squad. But they get easier and having a good support team makes a world of difference. Hope this went well my friend.

I am glad it is over, but evenmore glad that we can help him!!!
That's great news, Steve. It gets better

Have a great night my friends. I wasn't about to turn in but I was playing with the dogs on the floor and then next thing you know I was asleep with two puppies curled up with me.

Agree! Got some bad reviews but I really enjoyed it. Not every Pixar movie needs to be a cry fest. Some can be fun, too!

Watching Remembering the Titans myself. A great movie.

Why are you complaining? Isn't the snow going to by flying there in a week or two?
