Snoopy Dancing, or Guess Who Just Got Nominated for Palmetto Boys State?

Congratulations, David!

We are so proud of you for getting nominated--one out of seven juniors from your high school--for such a prestigious camp this summer. Together, we built the foundation through our many years of homeschooling. This year, your first year in high school, you remained true to yourself and maintained your character!

"Only boys with outstanding qualities of leadership, character, scholarship, and loyalty and service to their schools and community should be considered." PBS

"Sow an act, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; a character, reap a destiny." Many sources

"'Sow an act,' we are told, 'reap a habit.' 'Sow a habit, reap a character.' But we must go a step further back, we must sow the idea or notion which makes the act worth while." Charlotte Mason

"Provide a child with what he needs in the way of instruction, opportunity, and wholesome occupation, and his character will take care of itself: for normal children are persons of good will, with honest desires toward right thinking and right living." Charlotte Mason

He's going to be interviewed (probably today or tomorrow) to see if he will make the final cut (three who are going and three alternates).
