The kids' spring breaks are different weeks.
Stepkids' spring break is going to be the week before Easter and we get them that whole week, which means they will be going back home on Easter OR possibly the day before Easter. DD's spring break is going to be the week AFTER Easter.
So how am I going to convince DD to get up at 6:30 am and get ready for school outside of the bedroom and GO to school for an entire day duing the week that she knows her step-siblings are staying home. We don't get to see them very often (just major holidays and summers) and she adores them, she isn't going to want to leave them...so this is going to be a fight every day to get her to school. Actually, I'll have to get ALL the kids up and make them walk with us up to the school every morning. And then my DD's spring break is going to be lonely without them. =(
I wish the stepkids' school was on the same schedule as my DD! Would be so much easier for them all to have break the week after Easter, then it wouldn't screw up our Easter plans as well. Boooo.
