We were supposed to be going next august to disney for 2 weeks, it was going to be the last big one with the kids as kids. Unfortunatley dh has to go away for quite a long time next year and over the summer holidays. So we decided to cancel our plans. I was devastated as i'd already planned most of the days. then he said it would just be august september then november december so we planned to go just to see friends in charleston and take the kids out for the last week of term and book the big one for the year after (2010) Well i just realised that one of the weeks that we wanted to go in 2010 is when the GCSE results come out so dh and i have talked about it and we can't do that to him. So its postponed until 2011. I feel really depressed, i went past the disney store today and didn't go in because i was so depressed

sorry just having a moan!:rolleyes2::rolleyes2:

Aw hun. Its a horrible feeling isn't it :hug2:. When i thought we would never be able to go again last year it was so depressing. Hope things change and you get back sooner.

That's why we decided on next year and not 2010 as Robyn will want to be here for results.
Can't you go the day after they come out?

Can't you go any other weeks in August 2010? :(

You will get back soon one way or another :hug2:

I there any way to take them out of school in early to mid-December next year, Julie? Not even considering the adult's schedules--and fiscal responsibility! :lol:

We took Lexie out of school last year (was supposed to be 2006, but everyone was sick except me) because we realized we couldn't take her out this year since she was starting middle school a year early. :sigh; New school, new format, new teachers & administrators and all new kids.

Hope you can work out something. At least you had plenty of warning--before everything was set in concrete!

if we go after results then we won#t have enough time before school starts. Caitlin will be starting big school that september.

Kids aren#t allowed out of school Taja.

I don't want to go in July/early august because it's too busy and dh will just be grumpy. Also i can't get 2 weeks off easter or christmas as i work with someone who when i say i would like a week off says she wanted that week off. :mad:

The results are out really early this year which would allow nearly 2 weeks befor ethe kids go back to school.This year they are out Thursday and the kids don't go back to school until the Thursday 2 weeks later.

Thought you were taking them out next year?Couple of days would be all that is needed.

yeah last two days at the end of term . when do you find out when results are due? my kids due back a week on monday so wouldn't allow 2 weeks this year. couldn't let caitlin not start on the first day of her new school

What a pain.:(

They are earlier this year and we finished later which is why we don't go back until 4th September.

When i go back i will ask the exam coordinator if they know yet when the GCSE results will be out in 2010 at least you will ave some idea if it's possible then :hug2:
