So what are your plans to distract your offspring over the next couple of weeks?
Movies?
Camp?
Holiday programmes?
Take time off to spend with them?
Ship 'em off to Grandma's?

We did the camp thing last holidays, ditched the two boys (10 & 12) at Findlay Park for 5 days.
After about three days the novelty wore off and the peace and quiet was deafening!

This time they'll be spending time with grandparents, and probably catching the odd movie, maybe some indoor rock-climbing.

Oh Gawd, not again.  The time that most parents hate.  My 16 year old and 11 year old have already started fighting with the 19 year old (also on break) joining in for good measure.  It's enough to drive you to drink (hic)

Wish I had two weeks off every ten like the mini me.
My 5yr old boy is still very easily entertained, so these shouldn't be too hard.

Hoping to take him rock climbing in Glen Eden, great lil place there.

Indeed the climbing place in GE is great!

What else am I going to do with three kids for two weeks? Girls 4, 6 and 8 yrs.

Maritime Museum has a thing on for kids which might be fun, my girls like the regular museum too, but it will be busy.

Cheers,
Joseph
