A mid-week vacation day is even more fun!
Wednesday, November 09, 2011
My son's high school starts their year a week earlier than most. This gives the kids a week off in November.
It gives the kids a chance to de-stress, and the school said that the drop out and suspension rate has dropped by over 35%!
Works for me - and the kids are quite enjoying it.
So I took today off to spend with him. At 14 - I try to take advantage of this as much as possible because, as long as I don't, say, hug him in public, he still likes to spend time with me....sometimes (as long as there are no malls involved, for instance).
After spending two hours this morning fixing the internet and his new playstation system, so he could play his new game (he just started a paper route so is flush with cash for such things), we headed off to the awesome bowling and games centre close to our house. This is a great place - clean, bright, and lots of fun things to do. We had a great game of bowling (ahem, yes, after starting out with 5 frames of gutter balls, I pulled through with two strikes and three spares), and then had a fun time in the arcade.
It's been an awesome day so far. And I definitely see some relaxing in my future this afternoon!
I love Wednesdays off!
