Back in the saddle again

I had applied to teach at the Writing Project Summer Camp (get to teach writing activities to kids who really want to be there - so much fun!) but didn't apply early and so they're not sure if they can use me (depends on enrollment). I was bummed about that until I just received a great phone call - someone calling me to sign up her son to be tutored by me twice a week this summer! She was given my name by someone else I tutored two summers ago - isn't that the best praise of all? That mom had e-mailed me to see if I could work with her younger son this summer. I e-mailed her back and am waiting to hear. PLUS the Temple has my name for Hebrew tutoring this summer. Tutoring is such a great way to bring in good money. And I love working with kids like this. I know I'm teaching my kids and all that, but it's nice to work with kids in areas that my kids aren't ready for. I hope I can get lots of kids for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons!

Okay, someone just woke up - have to run!

Hey, Rachel, sounds like you could be doing some cool things this summer. Way to go! What does your hubby do on "summer vacation"?

That is AWESOME!!!
I love tutoring, and wish I was doing it right now. For a few short hours a week I felt like an adult and was paid hansomly, too. So, I hope it works out for you. It is a great way to be a SAHM and still make a little money!
