No, you would not be able to take your kids with you to training. You will have to arrange childcare with your husband. Yes, a reservist can be deployed and most likely will be deployed.

You would have to take a break obviously from school to attend your training. Your obligation to your unit once you sign the contract will take priority. As long as you fulfill your mission with your unit, you should be fine. Most Reservist have a double life, work or go to school full-time. Just understand that if your unit is activated, that will take precedence over your schooling.
