We got a letter from the school this week explaining to us about a new student tutor program. With this program they are asking that students with a high apptitude for math become a tutor for kids in their class that just aren't quite getting it.
Needless to say when I began reading the letter after Bug handed it to me, I was thinking they were going to say she needed tutoring.
To our pleasant surprise, they want her to be a tutor!! My daughter is going to be helping other sixth grade kids in math!
Where did she get it from? Not me... or her dad.... or her grandparents... I am just SO proud of her.
I think I may have found something that will interest J-man.
He is a comedian. I swear that kid will do anything and everything to make you laugh. If you have read Howie Mandel's book Here's the Deal Don't Touch Me, you will know how J-man behaves. My son is a younger version of Howie, but without the color-blindness and OCD issues. (And I recommend the book... it is very funny!)
Last night I went on an outing with my work team. We went to the Whole World Improv Theatre in downtown Atlanta and watched an improv show.
OMG - epiphany!
It is PERFECT for J-man. He could do what they do. He might be able to do it better!
They have classes for teenagers, too. I want to enroll him soooo bad... but we are going to have to wait to come up with the cash. 18 weeks is almost $400... and their summer camp is $200 a week for five weeks... yes, $1,000!!! It would SO be worth it.
I am going to be saving my pennies for a while.
One kid may get in college and one kid may be famous someday like the voice of Gizmo and Bobby!
