Yo Ho Yo-Yo

We had an assembly on Wednesday. America's Most Popular Assembly, according to their website.

That's excellent advice for anyone. And from the way the kids were cheering, you'd think they thought so too. Or maybe it was just the yo-yo tricks.

You can imagine how disappointed I was when the third grade boys, playing soccer right afterwards, totally ignored the E. Instead of encouraging others, some of them were dissing others' playing ability. The dissers were benched.

So I didn't have very high hopes for the NED ZONE yo-yo area. Especially after Ernest advised me that the yo-yo was originally a weapon. How did he know that? My son, the walking wikipedia.

Much to my surprise, Thursday morning's NED ZONE yo-yo area had no problems at all! Some of those kids are really good! And everyone was happy and not whiny if they didn't get the technique right away.

If today goes as well as yesterday, that will be a great send-off for spring break.

Spring break?
