Thanks for your input on the new banner design. In the end, I opted for a variation on Option #4. It showed a little more of the youngest blonde boy boogie boarding and the picture of the oldest blonde boy catches his “too cool” aesthetic.
I almost went with an option 5 (below), but I just didn’t like how the oldest looked sullen next to the youngest (he’s actually very funny and smiles a lot… but you know… he’s 14).
So thanks again for the input. With the oldest blonde boy in high school, I don’t know how many more of these I’m going to be “allowed” to have.
