I hope the schools don't mind.







We found out today that we will be in Disney world that week for my sons baseball tournament. I wish it could have been a week later...but those are the dates.







Has anyone ever had to miss the last week? I need to figure out a way to break this to their teachersr.







Other than that I'm pretty excited!!!!!!

You think I should spring it on them at the end of the year?

I wouldn't. That's more than the allowed number of absences and I don't really want to deal with the truancy officer or DCF.

Do you really think DCF would be called over kids going to Disney? That's assinine.

I actually have no idea what the allowed number of days are. I've never paid any attention. We're definitely doing the tournament, there really is no option there.

I would just wait. What grades are they in? Unless they are in HS I don't see it being a big deal.

I'm really not worried about that. My kids are great students and I don't think the schools will punish us....they just may not be thrilled with it.

Fortunately for you it's not their place to be thrilled or not that you've taken time to spend as a family.

Let them know during spring break and don't care how they feel. It's really not there business what you do with your time.

If you go over your allotted number of absences, yep. And I live IN Orlando. Baseball and vacations are not excused absences.
