I'm sorry your middle son is having trouble.

Wow! Tough choice about Friday. Has DS1 came to a decision?

Quoting Jinx-Troublex3:

Petty normal week this week..

My middle son is a special blessing. He has a learning disability that makes reading comprehension very difficult. We need to break everything he reads down into little chunks and he is easily frustrated. I signed him up for a literature course through our charter school but he has missed work, missed days, forgot times to be there, etc and the teacher submitted a drop request(aka kicked him out of class because of it).    :(   I do understand the teacher, and I understand DS but it upsets me that in 8th grade he can't even manage to do ONE class without me. Not sure what to do with DS.

DS1 has a dilema as well. He is the President of the local Antler Lodge. Antlers are a youth group, sponsored through the Elks lodge that does community service and provides a fun,supervised social outlet for kids. He is also a member of Order of the Arrow. OA is a society of Boy Scouts that the boys re the best of the best. An honor society that also does lots of service.

BOTH the Antlers and the OA have a meeting this Friday. The Antlers group has a "visitation" where kids and aduts from anoter lodge (In this case about a 5 hour drive from us)  come hang out with us and want to know how we work. The OA group has elections and DS wants to run for a position. BOTH meet from 7-9 PM. HOLY **&^*&...I wish we could clone him!  Not sure WHAT we are going t odo to have him in both places....

DS talked to the OA Chapter advisor (adult in charge of our area) at an event we had on Saturday. They are going to put the vote for DS position last on the list/ballot.

DS will run the official part of the Antler meeting and greet our guests and when we break for the social time I will run him to the OA event and go back.

LOL..luckily they are just about 1 mile apart so I can get back to Antlers quickly.

This week is busy. I am leaving Friday to go to Philadelphia with a friend. So the next couple of days is trying to get me and the kids packed in between everything else that we normally have.
