    And do you get more - or less - sewing done then?

    My kids are off school next week. Being that it is also Holy Week, I won't be getting much done.

    Ours was last month, but they get out for the summer in 4 weeks.

    My kids have spring break next Friday through Monday. We have snow days to make, so they only get 2 full days off.

    As for getting any work done, it always depends on the day. Sometimes they are entertained, other times they spend the day bickering. :)

    My kids will be out from the 25-29 March, but don't finish school until June 8, because graduation is June 11.

    We only get the Friday and Monday of Easter weekend. They always do that - no real spring break. But all the kids are done with school by Memorial Day. Love that!

    My kids are grown but work is closing for all of next week. This is the first time they have done this. No raise but an extra week of vacation. My list is long but sewing is at the top.

    In Central Florida they go county by county and all are back in the school. We still have some straglers down here from up north, but most are here in mid-March - mid-April. Our grandsons have Easter break, only 4 days, I think, in Maryland because they also have a winter break.

    Next week for one district and last week in April for DD. They almost always have Good Friday and then the week after Easter off, but this year because of the snow they will go back in for Friday, April 29th. Last day of school isn't until June 20th, though.
