https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronavirus-vaccine-moderna-human-testing/ "The NIAID expects to begin the clinical trial with 20 to 25 healthy subjects by the end of April to evaluate the vaccine's safety and efficacy against infection, the Wall Street Journal reported. That would mark a three-month period between vaccine design and human testing, with first results becoming available as early as July, according to the report." [ Reply | More ]

Put steel wool in any potential entry points, i.e, holes in your hardwood floors, near radiators, etc. Don't be conservative with the steel wool - make sure there's a lot in each potential entry point. Then set glue traps, potentially laced with peanut butter (they actually don't like cheese, but they like PB). Hopefully, they were out enjoying the fine weather when you plugged up the holes and they won't be able to get back in, so the traps will never be used [ Reply | More ]

I went to Jury duty and they make an announcement if you have some caregiver circumstances you can leave and go to room in a different building where you can fill out a form and meet with the person who will enter the excuse into the system freeing you for several years from being called. I think you could also call, but I went there in person. Plan on spending 2 hours, there was a line out of the door in the office that takes excuses. You should easily get off for a few years.

Oh Interesting . I still think best to go by grade. I have old DC for the grade but wouldn’t work to bump up to the older group since kids are usually socially at grade level (and not exact age in relation to the grade). Like 4th graders are very diff from 5th graders even if your 4th grader is same age as the 5th graders . Private vs public cut off etc [ Reply | More ]

He is in 3rd grade but his bday is sept 2011 and yes maine sleep away camp. The 2nd grade group has bdays from aug 2011 to March 2012 and the majority are the spring of 2012. The 3rd grade group has bdays june 2010 to sept 2011 with my son being the absolute youngest. [ Reply | More ]

It sounds like most of the boys in the younger group will be six to nine months younger than him so he might find them very babyish. Also, since he is tall and mature, it is unlikely that he will be treated as a baby by the kids in his grade even if he is the youngest in the group. As he gets older, he might even resent not being with kids in his own grade, i.e., higher grades usually get more privileges and trips at camp or he wants to discuss middle school and the other boys are all still in elementary school.

Is it sleepaway or daycamp? Will he know other kids there from school? If he knows kids from school, I would definitely keep him with his grade. Also, is it a sporty camp? and if so, is he athletic? tall? [ Reply | More ]

sleepaway. he doesnt know ANYONE. They say not a sporty camp but lots of focus on sports. He is not athletic at all but he is very tall and sensitive [ Reply | More ]

If sleepaway, I might do the younger group. That would be better for sports and then when he is a teenager he would get an extra year at camp which he might appreciate. That said, September birthday is young, but typical even in places that aren't NYC and I am sure he would be fine in the older group as well. [ Reply | More ]

Well, unless that extra year at camp when he is a teen is important, I would stick with his current grade if that is how all the other kids are organized. If he is tall and used to being on the young side, he will be fine. And if he is the only 4th grader in a group of 3rd graders, he might feel like he sticks out. [ Reply | More ]

in our case, they put our dd in the group that had kids closer to her age (they made the decision based on birthdays in both groupings and not the actual grade level). [ Reply | More ]

Always stay with grade. (Unless you want him in camp an extra year) [ Reply | More ]

While for school I think being one of the oldest is best, in your case I would keep him with his grade. First, you say he is mature. Second, as the parent of high school kids, when he is a sophomore there will be other way he will want to spend his summer but it would suck to miss the last year. I know for my kids, that would have been a huge issue. Can I ask what camp? My son goes to a Maine boys camp, and he LOVES it so much. At his camp almost every boy stays for the last year.
