Booking off

I just notified the school of the kids absence while we are away. Both teachers and the office know we will be away for 8 school days.
Girls teacher will be sending her home some work to do before we go, so upon her return she is about where the rest of the class is. She has also been asked to keep a journal. We will take lots of pictures, and write a journal when we get home about the things we did and saw. Her classmate is one of the friends we are meeting up with there so they can write about that as well.
Boy isn't missing too much, a little bit of reading, but that is OK. The experience of the vacation is education in itself.
Husband has booked work off, and I have found someone to cover 2 of my classes that I will be missing. We are almost all set.

And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind. ~Dave Barry In America there are two classes of travel - first class, and with children. ~Robert Benchley
