Two things, and then I have to get back to doing dishes and packing for my trip:
1--dh talked with the school people in Pelican, and they will help with moving expenses, so IT'S A GO
Oh my gosh, I'm moving to Alaska.
: (there needs to be a smily for fainting!)
2--On the whole circ thing...I just wanted to chip in that I would believe that there are cases (very rare) where I could see it being an acceptable idea. That is in the case of a boy who is handicapped to the degree that he will never be able to care for himself. I have a friend--LDS, and quite crunchy--who has a disabled son. If he ever leaves her care, it will be to some kind of assisted living facility, because he will never be able to really care for himself. She isn't in favor of circumcision in general, but felt that it was the appropriate choice for him, since it will always be other people helping him bathe etc. I think that, in a similar situation, I would consider it. Not for an average kid, of course, but I can see personal revelation *for* it in a case like that, kwim?
And, for those of us who didn't know, and do have a circ'd child or two...well, just remember that all will be restored in the resurrection.
(OK, this is way OT, but when I think about "all things being restored to their perfect form" in the resurrection, I always think about the people who have gone to lots of effort and money to have a sex change...they are sure gonna be in for a surprise! :
