I sure do!! Love them because the boys are all home so we can go do things together and we all can sleep in and relax. Hate them because going back to school after a long weekend or in our case a whole week off is rough! No one wanted to get up, everyone fought getting dressed/ready. Ugh. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!

Not really. My son loves going to school, so never have any issues with him. And Mondays he has choir practice after school which he doubly loves so it's usually fine. I didn't enjoy getting up early, but I go to bed at a decent enough hour that I typically get enough sleep so it's okay. I enjoy the weekends to relax after a stresfful week but I can't sit around and do nothing or minimal stuff for too long before I start getting antsy, so I'm good with weekdays too.

My girls usually love school and are very excited to go back after a long break but for some reason today was rough for us too. No one wanted to get up. Not even dh and he's always up before everyone.

The first day back is always rough for us too. It's hard to get back into a routine.

Mine aren't that great at getting up any day of the week! I can't say that it is any harder after a long weekend. I'm like a drill sergeant in the mornings, and in the end they both get on the bus with a clean uniform, a full belly, brushed teeth, combed hair, and all their stuff. They haven't missed it a single day.
