Random thoughts...

So this is what this blog is all about, right? So here goes.

First, I started tutoring one of my students who is homebound this semester--she's having a baby in November (if she makes it that long) and has been put on bed rest. Unfortunate, but she's doing fairly well--bored, but healthy. She is doing amazing! Not only is she determined to stay current on all her assignments, I think she may even get ahead in some classes! I have this student in 3 classes, including my yearbook class. Since our ad sales campaign is in the fall, she is selling her ads over the phone--and doing great! She rocks...I'm quite proud of all she is accomplishing right now. Hoping she can get ahead so she is able to take a short break when she has Ella.

The first full week of school is over now--not too bad either. I have some pretty good kids this year. I'm still adjusting to life with very few freshmen (has been too tough...) and a schedule full of seniors--definitely a change for me. So far, they're not too bad. Ask me that again in 6 months when they all have senioritis and I'm sure you'll get a completely different response.

Tupperware is going fairly well, just closed 3 parties today, have 2 coming up in September, but I'm always looking for more--let me know if you want to earn some free stuff. The entire reason I started this business in the first place was to help offset some daycare costs--so far, I'm breaking even. Hope I can continue that. Wish me luck!

Speaking of daycare--Did i mention that I have a great sitter?! She is awesome--Tate has done so well with her! I'm so glad I found her!

I'm thinking thats about all I'm thinking right now...but I'm sure more will come soon...hopefully some will involve pictures...its looking a little boring...

  1. That's great to hear about your student. It seems like most girls would drop out completely, but she is focused.

    Isn't it great to find a good sitter? I think my initial worries about our sitter just came from the fact that Scott was going to be in someone else's hands besides my own or my husbands.
