What would YOU do?
We moved from one county to another. As a result, the spring break schedules are different, with the new county going a week before the one we just moved from.
The Boy Scout troop that Gameboy just moved up into is planning a 4 1/2 day camping trip to coincide with their county's spring break. It's a good idea for him to attend this one, as it'd give us a good idea whether he can survive a week at Boy Scout sleep away summer camp. This is something he wants and we'd love to allow him.
Would YOU, if you had an academically advanced but socially impaired child, have him miss two days of school to go on a scouting activity? He has only missed a couple of days due to illness this year.
Our thought is to send him camping. He gains so much out of being with his peers in a structured setting that encourages teamwork and social interaction.
Oh and last night, he led the pledge and promise at the beginning of the meeting. Pretty cool.
