[QUOTE=AprilandtheKids;981880]Our next trip was supposed to Aug 20-25, but we have to come back a day early. My 4 yr old ds got accepted into Pre-K at the elementary school. School starts Aug 25, so we have to leave after our Ohana’s breakfast on the 24th and head home so he can start the next day. I’m thrilled he’s going to school, he’s excited, but does it make me a bad parent to consider skipping my baby’s first day of school to stay at DisneyWorld lol?[/QUOTE]
I am a teacher, and several times my kids have missed one or two days of school in order to squeeze in a Disney trip, but never the FIRST day. I’d have a hard time having them miss the first day of school, that’s a tough decision. Since it’s Pre-K is it just a half-day of school? That might not be so bad. We are returning on the 23rd and my kids start on the 25th, so we have a day to spare. Luckily I don’t start until the 27th this year. Hopefully I’ll have all of the laundry done and everything put away by then!:laugh: Is it going to cost you money to switch your flights to the day before? If there were a lot of expenses involved, then I think I might have him skip the first day. If not, then I’d probably try to get back for it.
