    Truth. Epcot wouldn't even be on our itinerary if it weren't for the IPs. I really understand the sentiment attached to the historic Epcot classics, but first timers like us won't get the draw.

    That seems a bit over the top. My kids have never needed to bring home any homework. They get it done in class. Except for reports/presentations. And they do have things they can review for....like topography, spelling (not anymore, but they used to), history...they get a paper with key words on it. DD is very good about it, DS is not. But that's the only thing they've ever brought home. They've GOT to have time to be kids.

    I'm so glad you are having some fun. Our family fell apart after my Grandmother died. They saw no need to do anything more. It was so sad. I have so many memories from fun times during the holiday's....each sister would host the holiday's each year.

    Those are very painful, I hope the next one goes better. I got orange juice. I didn't want it though. Oreo's are the best , along with pop!

    Even without IPs EPCOT was amazing for kids with lots to see, do and eat. Now I'm missing Innoventions:(

    The hotel is haunted, but they put mattresses in the boarded up building, of those who died over the years. That place is scary, with the midnight tour. Just a few weeks before a woman became possesed. They had to have an ambulance take her away. Daughter did an article for a Magazine in Australia focusing on the Stanley. It has many reporting's of haunting's. The building cannot be entered unless you sign a waiver before entering. You have to be over 21 to enter, and it's only at midnight. I want no part of that....seems way to scary to me. And after Hawaii, I want no part of ghost hunts. We got the scare of our life in Hawaii.

    I'm much more cautious about doing anything having to do with hauntings. There are some things we should just stay away from.

    Oh, yes, Thank you @MOXOMUMD! There was a weird dancing hot dog video on Facebook and people were wondering why this was circulating, and I was able to clue them in that it was Hot Dog day. I wouldn't have known that without the countdown...apparently it's not one of the holidays that people really know about.

    DD still has one more year of Elementary school. DS has 2 years. But they don't give much homework here in elementary. And the amount of homeworkin HS is directly proportional to which kind of high school you do here. If you do VWO like DD wants to do, you get a lot of homework. If you do VMBO-Basis like a couple of her friends, they probably won't get much homework. The higher level of school you go to, the more homework you have.

    Haunted Mansion is not going to be operating during my upcoming Disneyland birthday trip. I will miss it.
