We always enjoyed our April spring break in Gwinnett County. It usually hit around my birthday and whatever we did seemed like special birthday time with my family. But now in Arizona, our spring break is in March, and I don’t like it. My kids are off this week and it just seems too early.
The kids are finally in a good working groove and you ruin that by taking a week off. It’s also still kind of cold. You can’t really swim unless the pool is heated. (And you know I’m not going to Mexico this week.) Plus, the rest of the year seems so long – you’ve got the rest of March, April and May. When you hit April spring break you know you’re almost there!! You’re in the home stretch.
Some teacher friends in Gwinnett thought a March spring break sounded nice, but I think a good four-day weekend would be better. A little break and save the full week for later.
The universities take March spring breaks so I’m not sure if our school district is following the university schedule or what.
They still give Good Friday off before Easter.
When is your spring break? Do you like it earlier or later? Would you want to be off in March? Do you need a break then or do you think the kids need the break more in April?
