School Is Back In Session: Advanced Lunch Planning

**Special thanks to the moms who contributed ideas to this post.** It happened again. It was June, and we were footloose and fancy free. I can’t tell you what my kids ate all summer long.

Making Magical Memories: Disney World with Off To Neverland Travel

Prior to taking my kids to Disney World this past year, I hadn’t been in over 20 years. While I will admit that I wasn’t the one in charge for that mid-nineties vacation, I don’t remember the enormous lines, unending food choices, different ticket possibilities, and infinite number of options for accommodation.
