My "kids" range in age from 31-37. We always took them out of school for vacations (sometimes to WDW). If you ask them what they were doing on a school day in 1992, they have no idea. But they remember all the wonderful vacation days they had, and the family memories. They are all happy, successful adults. I don't discount what they learned in school, but I am sure those solid happy family memories contributed more to their well-being. In the grand scheme of things, it's the memories that count.
