Report Card Vacation31 Jan 2007
This week the schoolkids in Niedersachsen get 2 days off school for *Zeugnisferien*, or report card vacation. As far as I know, the first graders at Christopher's school don't even get report cards, but they get the days off anyway.
Even better, today his school lets out at 10 am, after exactly 90 minutes in class. So working parents lose 3 days instead of 2.
That din you'll be hearing in the background is the sound of somewhat more chaos than usual.
