1. Do you have a dress code at work?

2. What was the last movie you saw in the theater?

3. This is a question that one of our good friends is posing as they have the opportunity to move next year but their oldest (they have 3 children-the other 2 are in middle school and elementary school) will be starting their senior year in high school. Would you uproot your child that late in their high school career or would you wait until they graduated?

1.  No

2.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

3.  I would (and did) wait.  We moved a couple times when ds was in elementary school, and again the summer between elementary and middle.  At that point, I made a promise to him and to myself that we would stay there until he'd graduated.  We stayed there for 8 years...moved again the year after he graduated.

I changed schools in 10th grade and while it was, overall, a good thing, the adjustment wasn't easy and I always wished I could have had a consistent high school experience.  It was very important to me for my own child to have that.

1. No.

2.  Beats me. Maybe the last Harry Potter movie??  I'm not really sure.

3.We would not have moved when John was in high school.  Both the ex and I have moved during the high school years and while we know we both survived and did fine, it wasn't ideal.  So unless it had been a matter of extreme economic necessity, we were determined not to move  then.

Kind of ironic, really because the only person John really associates with from high school is his wife :)

1. No

2. That newst Transformer movie.

3.  One of the reasons DH retired from the Air Force when he did was because it allowed DD1 to spend her last three years of high school in one school.  I would not purposly move a child in late high school.  There is not only the reason of uprooting their life but can also be an issue of credits and graduation, which of course can effect future college plans  Since in the military choosing when to move (at least for the active duty member) is not an option some families in that situation choose to split up the family, either only the millitary member moves and the family stays behind or the high schooler stays behind living with friends and the rest of the family moves.

 Along the lines of moving kids.  When we lived in OK the way the young girl who lived next door custody was split was by the year.  She live for one year with her dad in OK then the next year with her mom on CA.  Back and forth.   She was in late elementary school when we were her neighbor. I always wonder if they continued it into middle and high school and how it worked out.

1. No

2. I don't remember the last time I went to the theater, lol.

3. Maybe.  It would depend on the circumstances, and on the child.  I have one that I absolutely would not move, one I would, the others, eh, possibly.

1. Do you have a dress code at work? No, but I usually wear a jacket for meetings.

2. What was the last movie you saw in the theater? The Grand Budapest Hotel.

No, I would not uproot my child at that point in the child's education, unless the move presented some unique opportunity for the child (foreign country, perhaps, or an amazing and unusual school). If the move couldn't be helped. I would find another family to take my kid in for that last year of HS. If the child moved with me, because of it being some great opportunity, I would make sure the kid was OK with possibly having to do an extra year of school. Either way I would leave for the kid to decide.

n/a.  I really cant remember, Lol I took DDs to see fault in our stars and I read the book but by the time I finished that it wasnt showing anymore!  I dont know, we've actually moved w/kids in high school and I see pros and cons, We also know a few families that have too - one I complety adore was my kids' babysitter when we lived in Texas, they moved there the same year we did and her daughter was entering her junior year at one of the prestigious girls school, Wonderful family and very well rounded.  I don't know, tell your friend to stay positive.

. 1. No, except if we want to participate in the graduation procession.  2. Gravity. 3.  It would depend on the kid.  If it were important for him to stay, we would have found a way to make it happen.
