No other math classes were offered other than those 3 and the feeder middle school wouldn't allow you to go ahead. There were no honors classes and I never even
  2. Chris, do you mind if I ask which church school you're with? We're moving back there in a couple of months. I'm all for discounts.
  3. Not only that but the regulations seem to vary depending on the cc. The one I was looking at is $142/credit so it isn't cheap.
  4. Dh and I got certified about 14 years ago and have been on a few hundred dives. We lived in Hawaii for a few years but didn't go all that much since our work/school schedules didn't line up and I don't like going with anybody other than him. Not to mention it got expensive with the gear rentals and needing babysitters. The kids just got their open water certifications a few months ago. Dd was hesitant at first but as soon as she got in the first time she was hooked. She'd like to work as an instructor for a part time job in college. We're so excited we can take dive vacations as a fam
  5. I'm concerned about making things worst for ds. I know the board will not look kindly on him if they get involved. I feel the scoutmaster lost interest once his ds got eagle and it has all been downhill from there. I convinced ds to go look at other troops in the area so we will see how that goes. There are a lot of other problems with the troop. My ex-boss works at the council office now. I know he will use discretion if I ask him to and at least try to fix things without dragging ds into it but going to him is a last resort.
  6. It was the Scoutmaster who asked for it to be that way. Well they had the board of review yesterday. Except I didn't get the text the night before saying it was going to be the next day. They are well aware that my phone for some reason doesn't get mass texts. Of course their response was something along the lines of better luck next time. Uniform is typically the troop t shirt so he wasn't prepared. It kills me because Sunday morning I was picking ds up from a camp out and I asked about it and I was assured no board. Ds is heartbroken, especially since he wasn't allowed to run for any
  7. Dd looked into both sea cadets and CAP and decided on CAP and LOVES it. The sea cadets in our area was only about 3 hours once a month while CAP is 2.5 hours a week and often runs over. Also, it was a lot less military oriented which is what she was looking for. She wants to be an engineer and is really into anything that leaves the ground as she puts it. She has learned so much in just the couple of months she has been in. Dh is a military pilot and looked over the aerospace education materials and was very impressed about the thoroughness. Also with CAP you can continue after you're 18
  8. He isn't involved in the actual school aspect because I work our schedules so that are finished when he is home. His days off are our days off. But he helps a ton in other ways. He wakes them up every morning and does PE with them. He is very involved in extra-curricular activities which we wouldn't be doing nearly as much if they went to ps. He goes to every Boy Scout meeting/activity he can and has recently started teaching a monthly class for dd's CAP squadron. When deciding where we want the military to send us next the first thing he did was ask me to check homeschooling stuff (secu
  9. Ds is back from camp and had a blast. He earned his swimming, archery and fish & wildlife management. He still needs one more requirement for emergency preparedness which he already texted the scoutmaster about doing at the next meeting. He'll be awarded something to add to his walking stick at the next meeting too. Something about best spirit in the troop. He has finished all the requirements for second class and first class except the board of reviews but they won't do it until the other boys who crossed over with him need to do theirs because they want them to all rank up togeth

    Chicken pox

    Thanks ladies! No shot we had decided against this one. He will go in tomorrow to get one. I'm furious though because the mom texted me and said she thought that's what his spots were but let him go anyway. So he was itching and had spots all weekend. If ds catches it he will have to miss camp which I paid a small fortune for.
  11. Ds spent the weekend at a scouting event and I just got a call from the mom of the little boy he was sharing a tent with saying he has chicken pox. His spots showed up yesterday and she took him to the doctor today. There were only 2 other boys at the event and tonight there will be about 12 at the meeting. I think ds had the shot but I can't remember and I can't find his shot record right now. Would you send this child to scouts tonight and continue the normal activities or keep him home for a few days to see if he shows symptoms? I would feel terrible if he got another child sick.
  12. The senior scout needs to be in class A uniform to present the boy doing the BoR to the committee. Is this not true for all troops? Neither dh nor my brothers ever did scouts so we don't know if that was normal. Anyway, the senior scout forgot to wear his uniform since for the summer their uniform is just the pants and the troop t-shirt so they couldn't do the BoR.
  13. I forgot about this thread. Ds passed his BoR for tenderfoot last week. He should have all his requirements for 2nd and maybe 1st when he is done with camp at the end of July but there won't be enough people there to do a BoR until the end of Aug. He isn't happy about that because he wanted it done before we move to a different state and that won't happen. He was frustrated enough because he had to wait on doing tenderfoot BoR for weeks because either there wasn't enough adults there to do it or the senior scout would forget his uniform or whatever. 5 weeks in a row he was ready but they
  14. I recognized somebody at a meetup once except I didn't know it was her until after and never saw her again. I know 2 people from co-op post on here but don't know their username and I never outed myself. I would love it if somebody recognized me though.
  15. Ours shot up about $300 this year because the fire station in that district has a long response time.
