A Sad Refund

October 4th, 2011 at 01:59 pm

This post has mixed emotions.

The sad: My youngest daughter has decided that she no longer wants to take dance classes. Her heart isn't in it. I made her go for a full month before making a final decision. This would have been her fifth year of dance. I guess four was plenty for her. I'm going to miss seeing her smiling face at the recital this year. Of course, if I made her go for the next 8 months she probably wouldn't be smiling at the recital.

The glad: We are getting a refund for prepaid dance tuition! In the amount of $323. I pay in full to save the recital fee which is about 10% of the years tuition. It is the studios policy not to offer refunds for prepaid tuition. However, since we are still clients (my older daughter takes tumbling), we have been granted a refund of our credit balance. Whatever they want to call it, I'm getting a refund!! It should be in the mail this week.

And I can sell her jazz shoes and return a pair of yoga pants. Yipee!

    I lasted about five years in dance. But it was different. I wanted karate, and my mom put me in tap lessons instead. I hated it the entire time!

    Maybe she'd like classes in something else? 'Course there would go your refund. Wink

    My daughter took a hiatus from dance over the summer. She ended up coming back with a vengence - not only competing solo at the Oireachtas, but team dancing with her sister for ceili. I hadn't planned for THOSE extra expenses in the budget.

    I bet that your girl will find something else she'd like to do, and good job on the refund! Smile

    CCF: We're all about the lessons and lesson fatigue here too. DD has abandoned french, briefly considered relenting because she like the other students, but then admitted she wasn't interested in the work.

    She's doing Kumon math, and it seems to have really helped, so that about 30 minutes a day. But it's put a damper on other things.

    Our daughter opted out of ballet this year and decided she wanted tennis lessons. It has worked out so far, but I think it did lead to a little disappointment for my wife, and I will miss seeing her cute little recital this Winter. On the good side, it is actually cheaper and closer to home, so as long as we have some insurance that she is happy and progressing and active, then that's what counts.
