What’s the Deal with D23?

Have a Very Happy Thursday everyone! Thursdays are always happy around here, because Thursday is Blog Hop day! Welcome to everyone stopping by from the Babes in Disneyland Blog Hop. It’s always great to see old friends, and to meet new ones. Our theme today is the D23 expo, happening this weekend in Anaheim, California. D23 is the official Disney fan club, encompassing everything Disney from TV and movies, theme parks, merchandise and more. [box type=”info”] Ever wonder what “D23” stands for? “D” stands for Disney, of course. 23 is short for 1923, the year Walt Disney arrived in California and founded what would later become the Walt Disney Company.

Tracking Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Projects

Disney is well-known for their conservation efforts inside the Animal Kingdom. With the help of park guests, they also fund conservation projects around the world. You can contribute to the fund in a variety of ways: Add a dollar or more to your purchase of food or souvenirs inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom Attend An Untamed Lunch at Animal Kingdom Lodge Purchase reusable bags and other specified items at other Walt Disney World parks and resorts, or on the Disney Cruise Line. Disney has teamed up with Google Earth to showcase the efforts of local groups supported by the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund: Download the Google Earth browser plugin, then go to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Google Earth map. Search by animal, or just browse around to find out what projects are being done in your own backyard. I plan on leaving this open on the computer for the kids to find...

Princess Lessons

It’s early August and that means it’s time to start serious school preparations. Two weeks until the first day of school! As a homeschooling parent, I’m parent, teacher, and administrator of our little school. No pressure 🙂 One of the perks of homeschooling is that we have the time and focus to address all aspects of our kids’ lives as part of school. This year, Princess will begin preschool and one of our goals for her is that maturity leap from self-centered toddler toward empathetic, reasonable child. And I found a great resource to help her do it! She’s answered to Princess from the day she was born, so why not use that identity to help her learn more princess-like behavior? I found a great resource from Disney: A Disney Princess Primer. Cinderella reminds little princesses not to interrupt, Aurora teaches princess vocabulary like “Please” and “Thank You” and Pocahontas explains...

Together Again!

It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for the Babes in Disneyland Blog Hop! Our theme this week is both simple and elusive: Joy. It’s very timely for me, because as many of you know, I’ve been blogging from a hospital room for the past month while one of our boys battled a serious illness. We brought him home on Sunday, and picked the other kids up Tuesday afternoon. This week has been crazy with getting everyone settled back in, follow up appointments, and so on, but it has also been a joyful one because we’re all back together again. To celebrate, I’d like to share one of my favorite Disney moments – one of the the ones where we’re all together. Somehow, I’ve noticed there’s something extra in the group pictures that’s missing in photos of one of the kids alone. Their individual personalities shine through, but there’s...
