Connor has been pining after one for a long time -- it was a dream come true for him! Yes, I think "you get free stuff when you cry" is something we should all remember at Disney. LOL! I do remember your story about the wallet because it is always one of my fears that we will lose something like that on the trip! I just love that things turn up at Disney! I don't know if that happens much in the real world. Thanks! I couldn't resist using it. When I read Chelsea's rough draft, I just knew it would be perfect for the update. I haven't read her finished copy yet -- we will see if she made any changes. Calmer? A little, but not much. I don't know why this year has been so crazy so far. Do your students arrive on Monday? I had a knot in my stomach just reliving it while writing the update. It was so stressful to discover the camera missing. I think both Charles and I would have liked something strong to drink, but it would have been a long, hot walk to Mexico! LOL! Le Cellier is coming up this weekend! Connor didn't seem quite as guilt-ridden the second time. Yes, we are almost down to 34 more school weeks. I found the travel writing lesson on readwritethink.org. It was in the high school section, but my middle schoolers took to it like ducks to water. The CM was so sweet! I wish I had had my wits about me and thought to take a picture of her with Chelsea. She was the best! Yes, despite rude people and a lost camera, we enjoyed our day! Chelsea had a lot of fun writing about her lost camera, and you know I just couldn't keep my mouth shut with my own comments! LOL! Disney magic was definitely restored and even boosted by that fabulous CM! Thank you! Yes, I love that comment of hers! So Chelsea!
