more help

Thanks for the input on the logo.  I've rearranged it - but haven't had time to put it up yet (class is going well, but keeps us busy).  Next question is color - Kooka likes purple, but says we could also leave it red.  Punk likes red. Rico is color blind.  Yoda licks the screen. And I am convinced taht my opinion does not matter nearly as much as the people who will keep seeing it.

What do you guys think - options on the table are: red, turquoise, purple, and possibly a very vibrant yellow.

new logo

New logo for the new studio is on the right.

Like it?
Loathe it?
Please tell me before I spent any money actually using it.

It's been strictly madness since school started . . .

 - My new dance studio opens this week.
 - Rico started his new job teaching at the college.
 - Kooka is keeping up with 4th grade homework, dance and piano lessons.
 - Punk has joined the school news team, where he anchored the morning announcements and actually signed off today in his best Porky Pig voice -  "That's all folks."
- Yoda started ECFE classes, is doling out kisses like crazy, and can say "more" "water" "dada" "up" "woof" and "yeah, yeah yeah". My left bicep is a testament to the fact that she still hasn't figured out to walk.

I wish there was more time to write. But there is barely time to think. Yoda is a needy kid, and when she naps, it is time for homework with Punk and Kooka. By the time we climb into bed, I have hardly seen Rico and we are both exhausted.  I hope it gets better soon.

In Punk's school planner, it says that every child is entitled to a free public education. 

Why then, have I dropped over $400 in school and field trip fees in under a week?

WTH is free about that? 

Homeschooling was a notebook, a pencil, and a library card.  Total cost 86 cents.  If we splurged for annual memberships to the zoo, and science museum, as well as art class - it was still under 200 bucks. Grrrrrrr.

first day

I hate the first day of school. Hate the way that the whole neighborhood goes deadly silent from 8 to 3; hate the 6 am wake-up call; hate that Punk and Kooka all but disappear from my daily routine.

One child was very much looking forward to the first day. The other not so much. Bet you can't tell from the picture who's who - but if you've ever met them, you know.
