    We were supposed to have Week 2, and I asked DSS if he wanted to do soccer camp- he said no. So I booked a bunch of other stuff for both.

    Their mum decided we would have the, Week 1 instead as DSS wanted to do soccer camp... (uh..ok why can't we do it with him?). So after much discussion, I cancelled everything and attempted to rearrange for week 1- most booked out, others had only 1 place.

    So...nothing for now.

    I love school holidays! It is my favourite time of the year

    Not sure what we are doing as their father hasn't given me the dates they are going to his house for (I am meant to get 4 weeks notice). So nothing arranged as of yet.

    We will go to the science centre and the art gallery and some other stuff If DP isn't working we may go away for a weekend.

    Can't wait!

    I love school holidays, absolutely love 'em!
    I'm not entirely sure how ours will pan out because of my unpredictable health stuff but we'll probably go to the Royal Show, movies, maybe Scitech but we'll also have the brand new baby mini lop bunny that DD is getting for her tenth birthday (she's named him Theodore and we pick him up in two weeks ) so that will keep us occupied!

    I love school holidays they are my favourite time of year.

    This holidays Dh is going away for a wedding and to see dd at the beginning. Then we have a week to relax. Week2 ds3 has a operation so we aren't planning anything. We will just go with the flow to how is feeling. Sadly the teens miss out on a big camp to bowen with the church because it in the same day as the op and I feel they should be here to support the little ones that might get scared.

    No one being ill is the plan this holiday, I had pneumonia for the whole of the last holidays. No plans yet, DH can't take any time off as he's in a new job and had to save all his holidays for the Christmas shut down may take DS swimming to remind him before he starts lessons up again.

    I still have to work Mon-Wed, so My little guy goes to his grandparents for those 3 days on both weeks. I miss him like crazy, but he absolutely loves it so that is nice.

    I haven't really made any fun plans for the thursdays and Fridays of each week... we usually play it by ear.

    I love school holidays because they are my holidays too

    My boys are going to their dad for the first week so I'm flying off to Melbourne. I've planned on going to the Yarra vineyards, gazi restaurant & being an audience in The Project.

    Week two I'm having my niece sleep over, taking my boys camping with friends then on the weekend they go back to their dad and I'm heading to the Caloundra music festival.

    I've inky got three free nights the whole holidays. Might need a holiday to get over my holiday!!!
