Spring Break never meant anything spectacular when my sons were growing up. I went back to college when they were young, so I usually would be working or studying during their spring breaks.
Now that I have grandchildren, it’s a whole new story.
I have only two grandchildren, so I thought it would be no big deal to plan this time with them. I was wrong.
First, it was the calendar issue. Austin attends school in Alexandria, which is on the year-round schedule. At the end of March, students there are set for a two-week break; however, it may turn out to be only one week if they have too many snow days. So far, so good for snow days.
