Pulled the kids out of school

My husband has a really busy schedule at work and we don't get much time together as a family.

He has a medical conference this weekend at a resort and we pulled the kids out of school (kindergarten and 2nd grade) Friday and Monday to make it a long weekend.

My MIL found out and thinks we shouldn't have pulled the kids out of school for this. I thought one last vacation weekend before winter is okay. Especially if they get to spend time with their dad in the lazy river.

What do you think? Is missing 2 dats of kindergarten and second grade bad?

I agree! Their dad doesn't normally have lots of free time so I thought it was worth it.

I see no issue as long as they are doing well in school. My kids are always at least half a grade level above so I have zero qualms about them missing a day (or two) here and there. Family time is important.
