Just checking in....

For those of you who follow me, don't fall off your chairs!  I'm actually posting two days in a row!  There isn't much to report, but I thought I'd write a little something.

I worked with my new student yesterday and I'm anxious to see how she catches on.  From her classroom teachers they say she doesn't catch on quickly, but coming from a homeschooling environment she is used to one on one attention so I'll see what I can do to make sure she has the skills she needs for the classroom to work independently!  If she doesn't have those skills we will have a lot of hard work ahead of us! :)  I will work as hard as she will to get her back up to grade level!

I had a parent and a teacher talk to me yesterday about two separate students so I might be adding a couple more, but I'm almost at my limit already this year!  I have to leave a time slot for my nephew to do his math and history with him this year with Skype.  I'm already enjoying that and second period is the time slot I have for that and will start doing it from school now since I added Heather to my schedule, but I still have a few afternoon time slots that I can fill in!  I don't want to take anymore after school or at home!  Last year I tutored at home until 8:00 at night and I just don't want to do that.  Right now my latest is 6:00 and that's good for me!

On the family front everything is fine!  My dad and his wife of almost one year (10/10) are living in their new home in MI now and are adjusting to that. Cody is one point away from being on honor roll for this 9 weeks.  I told Michele to find out what subject it was so I could help him out with it!  :)  He has to make honor roll to get his facebook account back!  Haley can say her months of the year.  I tried to get her on video saying them, but she wouldn't do it for me.  I will try this weekend when we are at the ball field to have her do it again so I can share it with y'all!  I'm sure you are ALL wanting to see/hear it!  LOL

No new pictures to share...haven't had the camera out of my purse since the last ball weekend! I need to charge it to get ready for this weekend!  :)


  1. Wow...I love your blog graphics Karen! Very nice! :-)

  2. Hi Karen! I was so happy to see a new post! Now...please keep on posting. :-) I miss you when you're not around!

    I admire you as a teacher Karen. You can tell that you really care, & we need teachers like that. I hope you can get the girl up to her level...she will never forget the time & effort you put into her.

    Hope you have a blessed week. Sending big hugs!
