    Yes. My eldest (12) isn't homeschooled, and the youngest wouldn't ever be able to concentrate with him at home all day, so that whole week would be out, anyhow. I'm going on a short trip to Sacramento with the eldest.

    The youngest and I will probably take a short educational overnight field trip when no one else is on break, though. Possibly camping, maybe here: Angel Island SP So much history (Civil War, immigration, Native American, both World Wars...).

    Sadly, we aren't. Our live online classes have different spring break weeks which is a huge bummer. So there will be a few weeks where we don't have a class or two, but no real getaway or full break from schooling.

    fararwilliams, where in Georgia? I've lived in a good bit of the state! (down near macon, over near savannah, and now near atlanta)

    We are doing a very LATE spring break. Early May we are going to the beach! School won't QUITE be over yet, so we are calling it "way late spring break". Well, I am. Tech is just calling it "beach break"

    We are a very "relaxed" elementary homeschool family. So depending on how you look at it, we either never take a break ... or we are on break year round.

    We just got started with homeschooling this month, so we don't want to lose momentum, but at the same time I don't want my son to feel deprived of a vacation, so we are taking a more relaxed/fun approach this week, with a Lego Themed Spring Break --- there will still be some educational activities along the way but will focus especially on the fun and restful parts.

    Definitely! We have no set plans as of right now, but stepping away from the books is always helpful. If nothing else, I see us grilling some steaks and indulging in some strawberry margaritas.

    When we embarked on homeschooling my son decided he would rather go to school more days of the year (meaning vacations and summer) so he could do less hours each day. That said, his friends that do go to school will be off so I will allow for a couple of days where he can go to their house or we can have them over. He knows he will still be expected to complete some work that week though.

    We are going to have a few weeks of 'home school light' coming up. I have a work trip to LA - taking the whole family. That will be a vacation of sorts but we'll do a field trip journal and reading. The schools have spring break a week later. We usually do field trips with public school friends during their breaks, so that will be a lighter week too.

    "other" because we take time off when we need to or things come up, as we just "school" all year round and change levels, or what we are doing when needed as well.
