I'm a stay at home mom, so part of my job is working around their schedules. We usually treat it as an extra vacation day. Today the kids are home because of Veteran's Day. We went to the store, picked up some movies and they have been working their tooshies off getting their chores done.
I think the kids are out for that Wed, Thurs and Fri. But we are taking the whole week and heading over to their aunt's house to spend the holiday with that part of the family.
