Do you have today off (President's Day)? Do you have a spring break planned?

We're off today. We're off for all federal holidays since my husband works for the government. Of course he had to work part of the day anyway, but we're still off. We're not having a spring break exactly. We're spending a month in Ireland and the UK visiting family.

We're in Canada, so we don't celebrate President's Day. We will be taking a break in March though, it's also when we "unofficially" move up grades (since we started homeschool in March).

Nope we didn't take today off, but we are done for the day.

I have surgery on Thursday so we won't be doing anything Thursday or Friday. Not sure about next week, we'll see how I'm doing/feeling then.

I have another surgery coming up but it's not scheduled yet. That one will be more invasive and I'll need at least a week off, if not more. So we may save our Spring Break for then, depending on when I end up having to go in.

We were planning to take a spring break in late march, but this week is so insane for us that we're taking this week of instead.

We are off today because of Presidents day.

My son had to have emergency surgery last week so, I would have let him have today off anyway.

We didn't take today off, because we took 3 days off last week. We all caught a virus, so we just played games and watched movies for 3 days.

We are taking what I call a homeschool vacation for the entire month of March. We will still do some school work, but only 1 to 2 hours worth most days. Mainly the girls will be writing papers. We are going to Hawaii for three weeks and spending the last week with my parents in Ohio for Easter. We also have a field trip week planned the 1st week of May.

we did not take off today but it is winter break for public schools here and some local places are offering camps this week. DS will be attending a camp for a couple of days at the end of the week for art and sports. i dont plan to take off for spring break. we are behind on days right now so we cant take off too much time

We didn't take off President's Day because DH went to work. We aren't planning on taking a Spring Break since Allison loves school and rarely lets me take time off!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
