This is where he stayed
on the island!
We participated in an organized gift exchange with fellow cruisers. It is called a Fish Extender exchange! Strange name but, if you are on a Disney Cruise you will see a fish next to each cabin. The tail of the fish is used like a hook and that is where you hang what they call a Fish Extender. Essentially an organizer with multiple pockets (one for each family member). It was so much fun to return to our room each night to find cute little trinkets. Cyler's favorite was the personalized hat.
Our cruise included a stop in Nassau! So many people leave bad reviews about this place. It isn't bad it's just different. I would encourage anyone to go at least once. Cyler had a blast playing music with the locals. Wouldn't trade this experience for the world.
We had a whole day at sea. We got to explore the ship and Cyler had a chance to meet the Captain. Cyler was a little concerned that the Captain wasn't "driving the ship". He was so cool and told Cyler that Captain Hook was taking care of it!
The Disney Cruise also has a Pirate Night deck party. They shoot fireworks in the middle of the ocean and have a dance party on deck. Many pirates can be seen on board.
The whole experience was fantastic! We were sad it had to end. We did make some new friends and tons of great memories! This is Cyler and our assistant server!
Now that summer is over it is time to start a new school year. Cyler is in the 1st grade. We switched from the state version to the local version so that Cyler could have a teacher to meet with face to face. He actually did too well in kindergarten that they had him redo assessments on a web cam so that they could see him do the work. His ADD/ADHD/PDD and IQ from a mental health exam had them thinking he couldn't do it. Well...he passed with flying colors! However, this wasn't fair to him. He had worked so hard to complete his work! Anyway, this new local online school will hopefully prevent that situation from happening again. I am hoping they can see that he is capable of most anything and just sees the world and processes things a little different than some.
