  1. All the toll roads I have used in IL have been with ipass system or stopping at an actual booth if you don’t have the system. I haven’t gone on 88 recently so I can’t speak with certainty that’s the system along there but for 90, 94, etc that’s the way it’s always been. So if that’s the case for 88 as well, you’d pay tolls as you got on or off and possibly along the way as well. And some places do not have manned toll booths so you may need exact change. I’d check if you can find if this is the case.
  2. You can actually use the reservation finder for free 🙂. You just need to register for touring plans but don’t need the $10 membership to see the crowds
  3. Oh and if you really want the Disney experience it’s all Magic Kingdom imo. Although the rides are fairly the main attraction it shouts Disney to me and the fireworks show are wonderful!
  4. We just got back from Disney World. Youll need to check the parks hours- some parks offer after hours parties and close early. The Halloween party will most likely be over when you are there but there are other things that could cause a park to close early. There are tickets good for after 12pm which are less expensive and would be great for you it seems. If you’re not big on rides I’d suggest Epcot. It’s wonderful to walk around and see everything around you. With the Food and Wine festival it was a little more busy but not bad. We were easily able to walk around and grab some bites at the booths. If you want an actual restaurant I’d suggest making reservations now for your choice of time and place (you’ll need tickets first). For two it wouldn’t be too difficult to find a place but the popular places will most likely be filled. I made reservations on the first day I was able (180 days before going) and I wasn’t able to get all I wanted. But I was able to move things around once we were there for less popular places. Disney has gotten more difficult to do a drop in visit because of the advance planning available. But I think it’s doable with your situation. I would have loved to go kid free to Epcot for the food and wine and wander. My kids still enjoyed it (and they did learn because we chose to do the educational options 😉) and love going there. It was the one place we wish we spent more time again. I know other suggested Animal Kingdom but that has always been my least favorite park. Maybe it was the day we chose to go but it wasn’t Disney clean, parts were just plain dirty, it was so crowded we couldn’t move easily (and we easily walked on rides at the Magic Kingdom and all other parks this week- even Galaxys Edge). The restaurant there was the least liked since we felt rushed and were treated rudely. It didn’t feel like Disney to us and we already decided next time we wouldn’t return. We had the same experience the last time we went. But we also traveled with ( kids from 1-12 so maybe that made a difference? there is also Disney Springs for food and some atmosphere, but mainly shopping and eating. Regardless enjoy your trip! It sounds fun!
  5. I had my cholestrol skyrocket after being on keto. My doctor suggested going vegan to help with the cholesterol. It wasn't great for my fat loss, but it did drastically drop my cholesterol.
  6. I haven't heard of these before! Thank you for sharing. If these don't work for DS they will work for another who is doing an Around the World Study. Plus the library has a ton! I haven't dived into these yet, but I do have one child who loves science and textbooks who will start using it. Unfortunately, ODS already looked at them and gave a flat out no. He is the exact opposite! Thanks for sharing! These are great! I'm definitely saving this as a great resource while I dive into planning his science specifically.
  7. Thank you! Yes, I should have mentioned that we have actually already done these before. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that they've continued writing them. It's been a few years without any additions. That's why we picked up Sassafras for other topics.
  8. I'm struggling finding a science for my sixth grader. He is not one that enjoys science at all. But he loves reading! I wanted to find a literature based science for him that would require little experiments or worksheets. He has done Sassfrass in the past and enjoyed it, but I read it aloud and fixed errors in grammar and such. Any suggestions as to where to look? I'd also like for it to be fairly independent.
  9. It wouldn't really bother me since I don't have anything to hide BUT I don't like it because of others privacy. Like when a friend and I are chatting and send a concern or something that may be confidential to them. I had a friend who wasn't good with tech and I later found out that her texts went to everyone's iPads and phones in the house...her husbands, her kids and inlaws. So they read all the texts we sent...meaning all the things I shared with her in confidence. That's when I stopped sharing things like that over text and make sure my phone's protected (although DH does know the password but doesn't read texts) for others.
  10. I love Ivy kids for 4-5 maybe even 6 yer olds. It has been the one kit I’ve felt is worth the money. The books and activities are fun and easy to pull out for a child who wants to do hand son things. The activities can get repetitive though after awhile. We subbed for two years for a few kids and have several painted banks and other items around the house 😂. The games are all pretty much the same just a different theme. Still my 5 yo has enjoyed them a second year. We stopped and just reuse the activities when we want something easy to do.
  11. Following since I was wondering the same thing
  12. Don’t tell that to my five year old! He’s always hugging and snuggling our chickens. That kids loves his ladies. 😂
  13. We use ours often. We just got it this Christmas and the entire family loves making their own creations. We do dairy free and sugar free so it has saved a ton! Although I’ve fallen in love with avocado ice cream and haven’t figured that one out yet! And that one is $$$$ to buy!
  14. I’m guessing because the 2020 prices aren’t out yet. You can call 499 days in advance to get a reservation but will pay the difference in cost when the prices come out. I also don’t believe you can get 2020 tickets yet but may be wrong about that The 2020 prices will be out soon though. Maybe mid June I heard? If staying on property is work with a travel agent. They are free for you and can help so much!
  15. I looked at American Story and while I loved the idea of it, I didn't like that there were 3 books to get through AH. I wanted to do it in one condensed year at that age group. IF you like using literature, have you looked at Beautiful Feet's American History?
