I need to get back to WDW! It's been a long month, so much to deal with I need a break! Think the school would mind if I take my kids out for 2 weeks once a month?

Nah, hew kneeds skool win ewe gaught Dizknee?! LOL!! - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 7:47PM
Omg...hahahaha... - mickeynme  177.5 #52 7:49PM
I just cracked up out loud again and everyone looked at me like I'm nuts...oh well..I am! Lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 7:50PM
I agree. Plus Disney is educational! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 7:50PM
LOL!! - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 7:54PM
Mickey'll teach 'em everything they need to know!! http://www.nationalnannies.com/10-lessons-kids-can-learn-from-mickey-mouse/ - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 7:55PM
It really is. I have to say that I've learned much more from Epcot than I have from many classes in my lifetime. It's fantastic - mickeynme  177.5 #52 7:58PM
LOL!!!!!!! I'm feeling guilty about pulling my girls out of school. It won't last long though. It'll be gone before I'm done packing all my dollar store rain ponchos. ;) - BagGal  340.9 #25 8:44PM
I think I need to go to mickeys school. In fact I should be held back. - 5disneylovers  1152.8 #6 8:57PM
Great website mrs. i!! SO true too! Love that. I bookmarked it.lol:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:06PM
No,don't feel guilty BG! You'll feel better once you're on that plane headed over there=) @5DL...i love your being held back comment..haha! - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:08PM
On my boy first day in Kindergarten the teacher greeted him told him about the class and if he knew his ABC'S. He answer back yes and we can say thanks to the Phoenicians because they invented it! LOL It probably didn't help cause he missed his first we of school that year. I know I'm bad, but we had a blast and he also learned some cool new facts. =β€’) - crzymickeyfan  15.5 #196 9:20PM
Oops .. sorry. . It probably DID help that we went to Disney - crzymickeyfan  15.5 #196 9:23PM
Haha! That's from spaceship earth right?? About the Phoenicians? Lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:57PM
BG, I have been feeling some guilt lately too. We are taking Jonah out 4 days, a Thurs-Fri and Mon-Tues. We've all been getting a sore throat this week and Jonah has a little cough too, and I have found myself saying, "OK, now...you *have* to go to school, because you can't miss to many days for the year. We have to go to Disney, so chop, chop...suck it up, you have to go to school today!!" LOL, I am a horrible mother stricken with guilt, but yeah...like yours, I'm thinking mine will pass as soon as we get Thanksgiving under our belts, lol!! - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 4:03AM
@Mrs.I... YES!!!! Same thing here! My munchkin was sick on Monday and I told her she couldn't miss school unless she had a fever because they'll be out 3 days! Well, she DID have a fever dang it! The school is sending out mean letters about attendance after 3 days (so we'll be getting one) and you have to have the you're-a-bad-parent-since-your-kid-missed-school-days talk if they miss 5 days! So, looks like we might be having that talk. UGH!!!! Why don't schools just give kids a free pass for Disney?! Kids should be able to miss up to 6 days for Disney, right? At work you get sick days, at school they should get Disney Days! πŸ‘ - BagGal  340.9 #25 4:46AM
Really BG ? Disney days only for school ? Come on let us be fair every one should have Disney days. apart from sick and paid vacation time. It's only right. Parents have to take the children to Disney. - 5disneylovers  1152.8 #6 5:13AM
Haha, DL5, YES!!!!!!!! - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 5:18AM
5DL - Disney should get its own short term PAID leave!!! Haha - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 5:24AM
No one should feel guilty about missing a few days. Educate those kids at Disney! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 5:29AM
So, DG and BG, what excuse did you give the school? We haven't told ours yet. - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 5:31AM
Jalex, that's brilliant!! That's what I should tell them, we're going on an educational field trip, lol!! - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 5:32AM
Unfortunately, there is no filtering a 5yo... The minute I try to spin it, he'll be going to school shouting, "We're going to Disney World!!" - mrsincredible  1190.3 #5 5:35AM
Our school district doesn't allow excused absence for "vacations" anymore. They would have to be "sick". - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 5:47AM
Yup, Jalex same here. My girls will have unexcuses absences for WDW. Plus, you are so right about educating at WDW! I did print off pages of flags, countries/capitals, etc. for the plane ride to talk about the countries in Epcot. I'm making journals for the girls with Disney crossword puzzles, a few educational pages, coloring sheets, and pages for them to write the favorite things about our days at Disney. So, see? They'll be learning! :) Also, @5DL... You are so right!!!!! Disney Days for everyone!!! Who do we talk to to make it happen?!?! :) - BagGal  340.9 #25 5:57AM
excused - BagGal  340.9 #25 5:58AM
Mrs.I, I just told the school that we understand the importance of attendance, but the girls will be out for 3 days for a family vacation to WDW. I told them this was the only time my husband, my mom, and I could all get the days off work at the same time. I'll still get the "you're in trouble for letting your children miss school" note though. - BagGal  340.9 #25 6:02AM
BG, those are excellent ideas you have for making WDW a learning experience. Must be the teacher in you! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 6:03AM
Aw, thanks, Jalex!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 6:05AM
Ther you go again Mrs I changing my : ( to : D - lala03  76.5 #84 8:10AM
The WDW blues are the worst! I had a similar feeling after my wedding. After all the planning and all the fun, the day you get back to real life... well, it's so boring compared to the happiest place on earth!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 8:46PM
Nope. As long as you send in a note and the nice gift for the teachers they will be excuse. - 5disneylovers  1152.8 #6 7:49PM
Lol. Love the gift idea! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 7:52PM
That's a great idea...can't go wrong with a little Disney bribery! Lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 7:56PM
I hate the post Disney blues!! Time for a new countdown! - ncjal  288.4 #28 7:51PM
Wish I had a countdown. Just can't decide in when we are going next! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 7:53PM
Ur not the only one. I need a disney vitamins! Almost a month since i left WDW, 3 weeks after my pass expired and last visit to DLand. - otilegna  2680.9 #48 8:03PM
@MRSI - I told both girls' teachers that we were going to Disney and that we do every year. The 4th grade teacher acted fine about it and said there were a lot of kids out about that time and that she felt the beginning of the year was the best time to miss school. The kindergarten teacher seemed slightly upset about it on a few occassions! Oh well, it is what it is. I felt guilty at first too, but everyone will get over it. I do the sick thing too, where I think "OMG they can't be sick, we are missing 6 days for Disney". So far, they haven't needed to miss any other days! Our school is very strict on missing and they make calls and have you come in for a 'visit' about too many absenses! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 5:59AM
I would've thought it would be the other way around... with the 4th grade teacher more upset than the kinder teacher. In our case, the 1st grade teacher said, "I will miss Audrey, but Disney is so amazing!! Have a wonderful time!!" I think our 4th grade teacher was a little upset. She said "okay". Oh, the guilt of being a mommy!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 6:09AM
My daughter's 2nd grade teacher acted miffed too. She asked me if it was part of her Christmas or something. She had a Dis member for a teacher last year so she was good to go! I told this years teacher that we do this every year and if she had issues I would see if I could move my daughter to a new class. We are taking homework and makeup work so I truly don't understand the issue - girlonfire  54.1 #102 7:15AM
@BG - ME TOO!! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 8:14AM
We are taking my 1st grader out for 6 days, his teacher wasn't mad though thank goodness, I just hope I don't get a visit from the truancy cop....yup thats how they do it here in the sticks lol!! You miss so many days they send out the cop to check your child and your house! Hopefully they won't since we are going to be on a vacation, I am making sure he doesn't miss any days before we go unless he is super sick!! - ccmom  187.5 #47 7:47AM
They send out authorities for 6 days? Sounds a little extreme! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 8:05AM
This is what I was scared of, seriously! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 8:15AM
Wow that's very extreme! Im my district unless you already called the nurse everyday your out sick they call your house, I actually know people that were out of school for a month, or a few weeks some people were sick, some were away and some where a combination of both(yes I knew someone who was sick for two weeks and then went away on vacation) I have yet to hear of the authorities showing up at people's houses - nodell111  166.4 #54 8:18AM
Yup here were we live they are sent out. My sister had them come to her house twice in one year when my neice was extremely sick on two different occasions. I let his teacher now already since it isn't until feb and she is going to send all of his work with him to do in the car. I agree it is extreme, I received a note last year after 5 days out (his first year of kindergarten) granted I never did have a cop here but I did receive calls from the office and the principal. He did have notes every time from the doc, so this time he won't and I am afraid of that. I make check into that program DizneyGirl mentioned =) - ccmom  187.5 #47 9:40AM
FYI - There is the YES program that some schools allow you to use.  I believe it allows you to document the learning experiences your child(ren) have while at Disney, or other locations. - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 8:18AM
That sounds interesting, today I learned about flying elephants at mk ad yesterday I learned about the Phoenicians at Epcot! Lol - nodell111  166.4 #54 8:20AM
SEE - totally a learning experience!! - DizneyGirl  938.3 #8 8:25AM
Nah go right ahead! Lol, Disney world is an excused absence right? I'm going to be "sick" on Easter Monday because this year my district has school then but we will still be on our way home from wdw oh well - nodell111  166.4 #54 8:22AM
