School holiday is almost over

It's still TGIF now, tomorrow is Saturday and then next day is Sunday. Sons will need go back to school and kindergarten on Monday. Exam soon and parents are the one that are nervous instead of children.

We have no plan on next school holiday. Sons wanted to go Legoland but we don't think it's the right time to go for now. We still need to save money for that and it's school holiday time the rooms are more expensive.

My friend has the vouchers for Swiss Garden Hotel, but sad to say it is suitable for just one location to use. The terms and conditions are stated cannot be used during school holiday and cannot be used on the Friday and the weekends. So this just make parents to make their children to skip their lessons? That's bad! We are not going to do that for the sake for going for a vacation with children.
