So you must have a large co-op for classes. There is a "classical" school about an hour away, that has high level classes for homeschoolers. But since we have a religious exemption, I'm very reluctant to enrolling them into any outside classes. So we end up doing most online. But, the Shakespeare class sounds fun!
Stacy, I was one of the "ridiculed" also. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It was terrible....

The Shakespeare class is actually called Shakespeare Conquest and it's a course from http://lemimentortraining.com/ which i believe is part of the TJed way of homeschooling. We don't do TJed for homeschooling but the class is great! It's taught by a friend of mine and there are about 12 kids from 12 - 17 yrs old in the class. Sage has also taken a number of the history classes listed on that site from another friend of mine (and Shakespeare twice). Trey will start Shakespeare and Key of Liberty in the fall. It's not a co-op, though. The only co-op I know of near me is a religious one that requires you to sign their statement of faith, so we don't belong.
As for scouting, it helps to have great leaders, a dad who's an Eagle scout and a Grandfather who lives and breathes scouting. We're totally not pushing him, though. He's just totally inspired to do it and has the support to make it happen.
