  • Nope, it's Thanksgiving here in Canada, so no school for me or the kids and no work for hubby. No mail or garbage collection or newspaper either. But lots of turkey and all the trimmings yesterday. Mmmm.

  • Mmmm, Thanksgiving. Our's isn't for another month and a half. Can't wait. It's my favorite holiday.
    Nope, my kids didn't have school today. they also don't have school on Friday for some faith in teaching in-service or something. So only 3 days of school this week.

  • Mine had school - private Christian school in Ca. I remember getting it off too, who knows!? They get two days off at the end of the mo though for "teacher work days" right before Halloween. Coincidence or no? hmmmm?

  • i would guess friday would be records day as most schools are about 9 weeks into school, yes i teach and all the kids came today, my son does montessori so of course they had school. i went to a liberal college that gave us MLK jr day off and not columbus day off... that seemed fair!
