1st day of school (2011/12) take 1

The Charter School that our younger kids go to has a modified year round schedule.

They started 2 1/2 weeks earlier than the other kids this year.

They weren't too happy about their summer being shorter, but.....
the great thing about it is that the first 2 weeks of October they will be on Fall break (right after I have the baby!!!) while the other kids will be stuck in school!
