    All in all it was a great trip, would I do some things differently yes, but I am so happy Bill talked me into taking them. I know I typed about Josh doing some not so nice things and acting badly, but there were also many great things he did too. He and Bill got much closer this trip. I think he finally understood how much Bill loves him.

    I will leave you with the last of the photopass pictures. This first one really touched me because I heard Josh say “wait I have to be by Bill”. That seven word sentence made the whole trip worth it.

    Thank you for reading along and letting me relive the magic. There is no place like Disney that can bring a family together like it did ours. We can’t wait to go back in October and see our Enchanted family again.


    As you can see by my ticker we are taking a short trip in May, this will be to celebrate Bill graduating Graduate school. He worked so very hard to get his degree and ended up with a 3.84 gpa. That is no small feat when you have Cerebral Palsy. He had to fight his way through every class to earn the respect of the teachers and his classmates. He had to type all his papers with one finger. One finger typed his 32 page research paper.


    He never gives up, he never gets down and he does as Walt used to say:


    “Keep moving forward”


    I hope to find some things to surprise him with; he deserves to have a magical trip.


    I am so grateful to all of you for reading and posting, it really means a lot to me. I can never thank you enough.


    So aloha until we “see” you again.

    My favorite picture!!

    Thank you so much for allowing us to relive your trip with you! I've really enjoyed getting to know you and your family. You have a wonderful, beautiful family, and I'm looking forward to reading about your next trip! :goodvibes

    That brought tears to my eyes. It is truly amazing that he has fought his way to the end and will be receiving his graduate degree. Congratulations Bill! I hope that you have a very magical trip! pixiedust:

    Dang, the end of your trip reports is always as sad as the end of my own WDW vacations. I'm glad you had this experience with Josh and his family and hopefully he realizes how lucky he is to have you and Bill.

    I'm so sad your report is over Tracy, but am happy that there are more trips in your future. Hopefully that means more trip reports for us! :surfweb:

    I love this picture Tracy! :love:
    (I thought I copied it, but guess not :confused3)



    Hmm.... does this mean you are staying at the Polynesian on your next trip?

    I'm thrilled to see a new ticker!! What a perfect way to celebrate...

    In honor of the one-finger typist.... :thumbsup2

    (Okay, so technically a thumb is not a finger, but Way To Go, Bill!!)

    Hopefully the PTR will begin soon!! Can't wait!

    Love,

    Kathy

    I'm still needing to catch up on an installment or two, but I cheated and read your final thoughts. :goodvibes I loved the family shot in front of the Castle!

    It's never easy traveling with family, I know. But even with all the ups and downs, the wonderful memories make it all worth it! :thumbsup2 Thanks for sharing.

    I do hope you make it to Disneyland someday! I'd love to show you my park. ;) And don't forget, we've got to see a Dodger game! :)

    Oh Tracy!!! I finally caught up on your entire TR. I missed a lot while I was gone. Your story has really touched my heart. I'm sorry that some things had to get worse before they got better but it's so good that it did get better in the end. It's so good that you guys got to experience this together as a family. :goodvibes

    My favorite picture is the one with all of you in front of the castle when you are all laughing. That is such a defining moment!! I hope you and Bill have an AWESOME trip this May. Boy has he earned it!!! WAY TO GO BILL!!!!! :cool1:

    Thanks so much for sharing your family trip with us. :love:

    Congratulation to Bill for all of his hard work! I know he has had to work so hard to get where he is. He deserves a great graduation trip & I'm sure you'll come up with some great surprises for him. I can't wait to follow along. :goodvibes

    I certainly hope you'll be starting a PTR soon... :rolleyes1

    Thanks for reading Carissa, I enjoyed writing about our trip.

    Bill amazes me every day, he is my hero :love:.

    Pakey you are so sweet, thank you.

    Hi Michelle, thanks for reading along. No, we aren't staying at the Poly, I just liked saying aloha :rotfl:.

    Thanks for being here. I really enjoyed sharing our trip.

    Well, I am not sure if I am writing another PTR/TR or not :confused3.

    Thanks for reading about our family.

    We did have a great night that night. The castle is gorgeous all lit up like that. I am not sure if I will be writing another report.

    Hi Kathy!! I think Bill deserves this trip and we have never been during the Flower and Garden festival so we are going for it! A PTR, aren't people sick of us already?

    Hi!! You are right the memories are worth it. I hope we get to DL one day too, I keep dangling a Dodger game in front of him as an incentive :rotfl2::rotfl2:.

    I am so happy we got to share Walt Disney World with them. Seeing Hannah and Christian experience the magic and wonder was worth everything. Thanks so much for following along with us.

    Bill wanted to say thank you to everyone for the congratuations, he is really looking forward to this trip. As he keeps saying "schools out forever!!"

    :laughing: I can just picture him singing the Alice Cooper song!!

    Epcot during the F&G Festival is gorgeous and the weather will be so nice... you two are sure to have a lovely time on your couple-only vacation! You'll only have yourselves to please, which will be a nice change of pace!

    And we can never get sick of you, Tracy! Your reports are always so much fun to read! You will help me to vicariously get my Disney fix until I can return in 12/11!! ;)

    Every once in a while he sings a couple of verses of that song, it is so cute to hear it in his little CP accent :love: .

    I can't wait to get back to Disney. We are both addicts, trying to find a "reason" to go back :lmao:.

    Thanks Kathy for saying that about my reports :hug:. I am doing some things a little differently this trip, I am also working on a couple of surprises for Bill too so I might do a PTR :confused3. There are only 82 days until we are in WDW :scared1: .
