Happy First week of August - Nationals

Happy first day (almost) of 2019 Nationals! Can't help but notice how many around the nation are also having their first day/week of school this week. This week also starts the Fall sports practices and tryouts in most States.

With schools beginning earlier and earlier into the first week of August, would you routinely pull/keep your kids out from the first week of school to attend Waterski Nationals?

    Saw a little shaver on the practice dock yesterday happy as a clam to be missing the first week of school. I was jealous not to be that happy myself!

    I can't believe how early school starts some places. Up here it doesn't start until late July. I probably would have pulled my kid out of school to go to Nationals definitely before he was in high school I would have pulled him out. In high school it gets a little trickier particularly if they play a fall sport but I probably would still let him miss the first couple of days not much happens yet.

    And the Little League World Series is just in the regionals phase....ridiculous! School should start after Labor day.

    Michigan made it a state law that school starts after Labor day. It was in response to the tourism industry. Schools can apply for a waiver and more and more are.
