So I was all set to try a September trip. I have gone many times the last week of August, which is great for lower crowds & my kids don't go back to school until after Labor Day so they don't miss school.
Trip I'm now planning is just dd7 & I. I was planning on taking her out of school for a week. Letting her start the first week (she doesn't want to miss the 1st day), then going the 2nd week. She would be starting 3rd grade, she is above grade level in everything, & I have no issue with being able to catch her up. So the only problem would be if her teacher just frowned on that sort of thing. (Ok by policy).
The dilemma is that I've just realized that Labor Day is very late next year. 9/7, the latest it can be. So now I'm wondering again about going the week before Labor Day. Kind of torn because I was excited about super low crowds during later sept & was considering MNSSHP.
