Yep, every year to go into the city to see the tree at Rockefeller and Christmas shop. So much less congestion during a weekday.

The Wright brothers parents did that for them all the time.  It didn't seem to hurt their education.  Remember children learn best through play and I am sure they will learning a lot while you are gone.  Have fun!

My kids aren't school aged yet but when DD was in preschool I'd let family take her to the water park or to the zoo on a school day.

I'll do it when they're school aged too if something awesomely fun comes up.

No.  My kids have missed school for illness (diabetic) too often.  They need to be in class as much as possible.

No.
My mom used to let us stay home on our birthdays... And as we got older, let us stay home on our birthdays and the day after (hangover) lol
So we didn't skip school anyway.
And she'd make hangover day hell

no, not yet.  they like school too much.  maybe when they're older and it  starts getting harder we'll start having "mental health days" occasionally.

Both of my girls pitch fits when they can't go to school when they're sick... not sure how they'd react if they weren't
