It seems ridiculous that he spends all day at school, only to come home and spend hours on homework. We rarely get to spend evenings together as a family because of this and dh is livid about it.

So he wasn't allowed to attend she said something like she didn't want him to misbehave and ruin it for the other children. So when he found out he couldn't go he was really upset...I told him don't worry you can be in it next year and you know what he said? "I don't want to!" I was so sad for him!
