The school district the boys went to always have spring break coincide with Easter; used to be the week after but now it's the week before so it will be the first week of April. Some years it's beeen in mid March and others late April. My older ds that is in med school had his spring break the week of Feb. 27. Seems kind of early to me but they started back to class on Jan. 3. He was here for a few days, had to go back up to school for a couple things, and spent the rest of the break with his fiance where she goes to school.

It's spring break for ds's U this week, but as he saved no money, he isn't going anywhere. He was trying to coerce us to wanting to go to Chicago, but only to drop him off at his gf's while she's home on break, so no thanks! We have other places we want to go this year. I did take today off, and it's gorgeous, but it's after noon and he's not up yet. We're going to play tourist and go to our zoo, and then have a pizza and salad outside. Then I'm back to work tomorrow; dh is home the next 2 days so I don't know if the guys will be doing anything but if so it won't include me. Not sure how long ds will stay home anyway vs. going back to his on-campus apartment (his U is less than 10 miles from home; last night was the first night he's stayed over since winter break).

Ours is still 3 weeks away. My DD 15 has 1 week and my DS 11 has 2. They are involved in a production that rehearses all through Spring Break so no family or individual trips planned. It'll be nice to have some relaxed mornings though.

Are you guys from/in Texas?

My ODD is the only one on spring break this week. She's working today and tomorrow at camps at the cheer and dance gym she teaches at and then Wednesday morning she is leaving for New York with photography club from school until Saturday afternoon. The family doesn't do much over spring break general, its just starting to be the busy time of year for my DH and its a very busy time for me at work. My parents normally come in for spring break as the oldest's birthday is the 20th, but they have decided since she's in New York this year, they will wait and visit in April for the middle one's birthday.

About 25% of the hotel revenues down at SPI (South Padre Island) come from Spring Break.

Spring break is the last week of March here. We have to head out one day to dd 's colleges for an Honor's college interview. I have a few days off. Dd will have to work. Both kids still have lax stuff.
