This week we got a letter from school.
I thought it to be another bill, but when I saw what was written in the letter my eyebrows went up very high.
It was stated that one of the girls was granted permission not to come to school for a complete week in februari...upon our request.
So I took the agenda and tried to find out what was planned that week. Nothing.
I looked at the site of school, if maybe a special activity was planned. Noop.
I even looked at the site of the ballet academy to see if auditions were planned. No.
Then I started to call around...none in the family knew anything about a request.
The idea that I was nuts shifted tremendously.
It's not the first time this school makes a hugh mistake and I'm sure it won't be the last.
We never plan vacations outside the official weeks. Even though it's quite attractive to consider the idea of going to London in that week. If only we had a place to stay.
So after asking all family members if they knew anything about a request for schoolleave, I decidced to send school a mail.
I told them we were surprised and interested and that we wanted to have a copy of the original application.
Maybe they found out themselves they've made a mistake. I don't feel the need to tell them again the same thing, sounding like a broken record: you've mixed up kids again or you've made a mistake.
