I can't wait for fall break! Would you believe we already got our first progress reports? We went back Aug 7th. Not a teacher, but I volunteer at school like it's my job lol. I need a Disney break.
It's really been that kind of year already, hasn't it? A few of my small friends have been acting out, but for me the poorly written/non-compliant IEPs several transfer students' prior schools have bestowed upon me this week are what have me shaking my fists in the air and counting the days until my Thanksgiving DL trip! - Smackerel 221.8 #1574 9-12-14 12:19AMLike(1)Reply
I feel for students and teachers lately. My parents were teachers, and I spent some time in college working on a credential but soon realized I wasn't cut out to work in the CA school system. The system just doesn't look like it's conducive to much learning or exploration for anyone. Memorize, memorize...standardized tests..."proficiency" (who decides what that is, anyway?)...no wonder kids act out and teachers get bored. Who cares if you can pick out the definition of a metaphor on a multiple choice test if you can't actually write one that makes logical sense? What kind of future society are we creating with all this? Kudos to all of you for the work that you do every day and the stuff you must struggle with. 💖 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 526.3 #335 9-12-14 8:33AMLike(1)Reply

Wonderful post. We are trying to explain what this day means to the kids. The oldest has seen footage from that day and I have shown him the magazines and newspapers that I had saved. We explain that this is why it is so important that we support our troops. They are fighting for us so that this kind of tragedy will never happen on USA soil. - RadiatorSprings4Ever 750.8 #206 9-11-14 8:15AMLike(3)Reply
Thanks for the great post. Today is one of the most tragic days in history. I'll never forget those lives that were lost today. Please make sure that everyone tells their loved ones how much they love them. And also, please be kind to everyone today. Not just today, but everyday. I know it can be hard, but today of all days. Lets love one another. Thanks& GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸 - Superspacemountainfan 73.8 #3745 9-11-14 7:14AMLike(2)Reply
i went to new york that october to show my support and i wasnt going to be scared to travel, my friend and i met so many young men that were put there to help out the firemen and police it was an honor to buy them a few rounds and see the spirit of country would not be destroyed by cowards! - draven898 281.3 #915 9-12-14 1:52AMLikeReply

That's what we do, but we get them when we arrive at the parks. We buy two or three in large amounts to use for the trip, because it makes it easier than tracking 5,000 transactions on our debit card lol. Every place in the parks takes them, including the carts. Not sure about parking, but I would assume they do. For us, it is a great way to stay in budget and not come home to 3 pages of bank transactions. - Thumper13 354.8 #572 9-7-14 10:35AMLike(1)Reply

We do the same. There are a few shops (like the magic shop, crystal shop, etc) that won't accept them because they are contracted shops and not Disney. - wannahockaloogie 156.1 #2468 9-7-14 1:41PMLikeReply
Great job, Dave! I didn't realize how much weight I had gained until I saw pictures from Disneyland. ( a good 20 pounds). Now I am trying to get back in shape!
Thank you for sharing Dave, very inspirational. I've started eating healthy just this past month because I feel finally settled in at work, and I need something more sustainable for my 10 hour shifts. It's so easy to just grab something unhealthy but we've done a lot of replacing foods in our house for healthier options. I even had the ultimate test when I went to DL last week. Darn brownie cupcake called my name so loud, but cravings pass or you just have a little. My Drs I'm working with have told me to look at food as a bad relationship that you don't want to go back to. That seems to work for me since I'm an emotional eater. You've shared your story before and I just want to let you know you've inspired me again. Next time I see you you're getting the biggest goat smelling hug ever. LOL - MrsSchnooks 2702.7 #35 9-4-14 6:55AMLike(9)Reply
@Dave you are such an inspiration I remember always reading your posts and thinking I was doing the same things but not feeling like any one understood. I as well as you have chosen the lifestyle change and am down now over 40lbs. I think rundisney had a lot to do with my success. But thank you for all the support you have given me through what you share and the encouragement through IG. You rock buddy!! One of these days we will meet 😂😂😂😂 - CourtyAstroBlisters 661.5 #248 9-4-14 9:59AMLike(5)Reply
I know what you mean about not realizing how much weight is gained until you see yourself in a picture! I have five kids, and have maintained consistently running as an exercise throughout the years, but have realized that inspite of calories burned by running, caloric intake can easily exceed those burned calories. Eating calories is like spending money...a littl here, a little there, and bam! All that running was for nothing! Dave, You are such an inspiration! I love this post. Although you don't know me, I have noticed your posts on here, and i stumble upon them on the like wall on IG. I remembered a similar post from you on MW a long time ago, and was inspired by it. If I see you at a RunDisney event u will say hi! I try to always sign up for them... They are so fun! - 7mouskedoodles 351.0 #580 9-4-14 11:22PMLikeReply
Dave, I saw this on Facebook and sent you a PM but it probably went to your "others" folder. Congratulations!!! Lifestyle change is tough and you look amazing, strong and healthy!! I'm so happy for you! - vernswifevickie 399.4 #480 9-5-14 10:01AMLikeReply
Hello Everyone, I want to thank everyone for showing me
their support in my time of need. As you know my mom passed away last week and
it still hurts very much. Nothing can prepare you for a passing of a loved one.
I am grateful that mwrs are very loving in caring with each other and shown
their support to people in need. I thank you all for your texts, dm’s ,
donations ( both personal and in my familys choc walk ) and coming out to visit
me or calling me to make sure im been ok. My wife and kids have been greet
support trying to keep me busy and making daddy smile. I truly love that
whenever anybody needs a prayer or support the mw community comes together and
shows their it. It does help believe me
and we all need it at one point or another. I know that mom is in a happier
place and the pain will go away with time, but I will always remember her and
the wonderful memories growing up. She will always live on in my heart and
memories and thankful for the sacrifices she made to make sure we had what was
needed for us. Thank you mw and thank you mom.. I will miss you dearly and I
LOVE YOU !!!

I'm sorry for your loss. I missed hearing about it until now. It will get easier with time, but you won't ever forget. You have a huge family here with MW. I just hope you don't let this change you. Some people resort to criminal activity like stealing things (trash cans, trams, etc). Please don't let that become you. - DLKenCA 1510.5 #83 9-2-14 10:39AMLike(2)Reply

Ugh, and so it begins, with the EBay people. I check every day for that bag. I really wish Disney would limit the number people can buy so that the rest of us had a chance.

I would like to echo what @Admin has said above. This will be the 2nd Bday Bash I've fully attended, even though I attended a Buzz meetup during 2012 & I'm so glad that I have. I personally have made lifetime friendships & by attending these events have been able to share both laughter & tears in person with these great people. I travel approx 700 miles to attend these events & I look forward to spending time with my MW friends & meeting many more in the future - UTDISNEYFAMILY 1175.2 #113 8-28-14 8:40PMLike(9)Reply

Prayers to you, I hope that you have a lovely time with your granddaughter.
Dear Father God, we thank You for our friend GIP who is going through some very scary issues right now. And we believe in miracles!! You gave him the miracle of life when he was born, when his kids were born and when his grandbaby was born, and we are asking You for the miracle of life again to keep him healthy, remove the cancer in whatever way You will as he wants to be with his family forever. I ask if there is a doctor or medical procedure out there he has not heard of, let that knowledge come to him or just heal him outright and blast those cancer cells right out. We know when many of us come together and agree in prayer You will answer us and give us miracles too if it is Your will, so please Father God, heal our friend, give him the miracle he needs. And help us be there for him and his family in anything they many need and guide them and give them Your peace to follow Your will. We love you and thank You for this and GIP, in Jesus's name, Amen. Anything you need at all GIP, whether there in phoenix or here, we will help in whatever you need. and I will pray my knees off until you are healed. lots of love and God bless! - secretagentangel 1242.8 #101 8-18-14 4:18PMLike(26)Reply

I wonder if they have any prints of the planes billboard that says "when others fly out, heroes fly in". That would be cool! If you call Disney merchandising I'm sure they can help.
Congratulations on PCSing! Go to Star Trader and get a print of one of the Starspeeders' destinations. That would be pretty cool for an airman to have! - BombFrogCM 694.1 #225 8-17-14 5:14PMLike(2)Reply

We used to ride Dumbo when the churros were little. Maybe it's time to ride again an get an elephant's eye view of Disneyland. Neat to see the video of how it evolved. The longest we've probably wait it is 20 minutes. Do they still give out the feather? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 3940.6 #23 8-18-14 6:57AMLikeReply
