Monochrome Kids

I feel like I should post something about the craft activity we had for Relief Society today, but there wasn't anything really noteworthy. Maybe the fact that they played Disney music while we were working, which put us into a major Disney mood... but since when is that news?

But anyway, yesterday Athena finished Monochrome Kids volume one, which means we get to talk about it now! But first, I should probably explain that Monochrome Kids is the series also know as Monokuro Shounen Shoujo. We call it Monochrome Kids for three reasons. First, that's what it says on the title logo under all the Japanese text. Second, it's easier to say. And third, if the creators (Ryoco Fukuyama + editors) have already provided an easy-to-pronounce (and shorter!) title to make things easier for me, why use the longer, harder-to-say one? That would just be silly.

Today I'm thankful for Ponyo being kind enough to drive us to the vet again on Monday to get Page's booster shots, having a fun time at the craft activity, delicious dark chocolate melting chocolate that actually tastes more like Nesquik sludge than dark chocolate, Monochrome Kids, and cool Beethoven music.
