i went, i saw, i bought my kids art...


Nope, I was not lucky enough to buy the KISS inspired Mona Lisa picture! Another lucky Mom got that one from her son---maybe next year mine will push the envelope like that.

Painted by Leonardo da Vinci

I can certainly see the likeness, how about you? Wouldn't da Vinci be proud that 5th graders are creating art inspired by her? Do you think he would mind she has the face of Gene Simmons?

I am still annoyed that they even tried to pass this off as a fundraiser. Today they offered that if I was unable to make it last night for a minimum donation, I could purchase my kids school art projects. Last night I took every piece displayed and took it home...possession is 9/10th of the law, right? I made a stinkin' donation, because that is what we do...but it still pisses me off!

Wonder what in the heck I am rambling about...read this.

My son goes to private school - and we get nickled and dimed the same way. I hear it's the same in the public schools (which I will discover next year when Buddy enters public middle school). You wonder where all the tax money goes?

The Art thing is about the most asinine thing I've heard of yet... Sheesh!
