The funny things kids say...

Isaac: Hey, Emma. Want to have a Lego war?

Emma: Well, only if they have a peace treaty and there's no fighting.

New Disney Promotions!

I don't have my Disney blog up and running, and I promise not to overload this blog with too much Disney talk. But, this news is just too good not to share!

Disney has extended their FREE dining promotion through September 2011 for most travel dates. In addition, they are also offering gift cards valued at up to $500 when you purchase select packages. Click on the following link for more details:



For your FREE, no-obligation quote you can visit 3D Travel Company.

If you're interested in joining hundreds of homeschool families for The Ultimate Field Trip, you can visit our Ultimate Field Trip page.

Busy Weekend…

It’s been a busy weekend (and week leading up to this weekend). I have lots going on, but in just a few shorts weeks things will slow down.

I’m working on a new blog for my new job with 3D Travel Company – a travel agency that specializes in Disney destination vacations! My new blog – Goin’ to the Mouse House – will be a place where I can chat about all things Disney! And, I’m in the process of opening a Goin’ to the Mouse House store on Etsy where I can offer all of my Disney-themed creations for sale.

I’m working on some promotions for 3D Travel’s upcoming Ultimate Field Trip (UFT). I’m embroidering backpacks that will be given away to all of the homeschool families who are attending our field trip in September – at WALT DISNEY WORLD!!

I’m gearing up for our new school year. I wanted to start two weeks ago, and even gave it a good try. But, I wasn’t as ready as I wanted to be so we waited. Tomorrow, we will re-start our new school year. I’m ready and prepared. The kids are ready for some structure, as well. Can’t wait to see what this year holds for us!

So, I’ll remain this busy until after UFT (early September). Then things should slow down…until our new 3D Travel promotions kick in and I start booking Disney vacations that is!
