I haven't heard of Clep. I'll have to look into it. Thanks! He's most likely going to start off at a junior college, CSN, to get started on his general studies. He already knows he wants to enter the police academy, but he can't do that until he's 21.
ETA: They only accept them at UNLV and he's not going there. At least not right off the bat.
Definitely check out the college's website for CLEP test information. I know for us it's a lot cheaper to get credits that way for the general education classes than by taking the actual class. Here's the link for you: http://www.csn.edu/pages/583.asp

You also need to check when they can take them. Christine could only take them until she had 30 total credit hours. Allyson can take them up until she has 60 credit hours. They're especially good for a student who is smart in specific subjects, even if they haven't actually taken the class in HS. Bob actually took a bunch of clep tests before he started college and was able to "clep out of" Psychology 101 and Sociology 101 and he never had those classes in high school.

Thanks, Stacie. I'm going to try and call CSN and find out. They gave the info about CLEP on the CSN website, but it wasn't clear if they actually accept it.
When I went to that other website, it only listed UNLV. Kind of confusing, but I'll try to figure it out. It would be nice if he could get some college credits before starting. He's taking one college class now in HS, but it would be nice to have more.

Yup! Sounds like a good idea!! Start the planning...
Stacie can you tell me about Mouse Adventure? I've seen it mentioned a couple times in various threads but can't get a clear idea of what it's all about.

Sounds like you've got a handle on the CLEP stuff.

Yikes, I've been so busy lately I haven't been coming over here!

Congratulations to everyone having munchkins and grandmunchkins and stuff, so awesome!

I put in for my personal leave day today, I'm taking off May 17th, the day after my birthday. I might be able to persuade my boss to let me have Monday the 20th too... MouseAdventure would be soooo fun! Gonna have to look into that.

Kid #2 turned 16 yesterday and there has been lots of craziness around here. But it's always fun.

It's a very intense scavenger hunt put on by Mouseplanet.com. We've been doing it for about 3-4 years. If you go to their website, there is a message board all about it. It's fun, but you definitely have to be competitive!!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend...mine was wonderful! We haven't had an Easter that warm in years...it usually rains! And to top it all off my mom took the kids to Oregon for a week so it is just dh and I! We went out to dinner at Olive Garden tonight...so nice to have some adult conversation. Tomorrow I am starting an 8 week (2 times per week) fitness boot camp ...I'll let you know how it goes!

Laters,

Everyone else, I hope you have a good Tuesday!

Good Luck with the boot camp Sarah May!

I have always wondered what they are like but have been too intimidated to actually sign up and go.

Get a team together and just do it! That's what we finally did. My first team was my friend Heather and my 2 daughters in December, 2009. It rained virtually all day!! It was called Reindeer games but was renamed Rain Gear games. If you want to give me your email, I can send you some of the packets. I've scanned them all in. No 2 are alike, so it will only give you an idea of what MIGHT be part of the game.

You are right...I should just go for it. Thank you for the offer - I'll PM you my email when I get to work in the morning.

Hello, Once again I am excited to start making plans for the Diva 2014 gathering. I followed along on the Dis during the last 2 Diva meets.

I am a bit older then most of you. I enjoy DL so very much. I never feel old at DL. It is the little things that make me happy.

I do not live a very exciting life. I think I have to say I might live a boring life.

Count me in for the time of my life.

Patty

I will get more up to date photo to Beth this time. That is my plan anyway--just need to know how to send the info to this site. sigh why can't I be a 5 year old they know how to do all this cut, paste, move, find it, move it back, re-post stuff. I am computer operation challenged.

That is right we are not old-- we are just well "seasoned" with extra "spirit".
