The First Day of School August 24, 2006

Shayna is in her first year of high school this year and Madison is in the 4th grade. Shayna's first day was pretty rough since her purse was stolen so she lost her pink Slvr cell phone and all the paperwork she was given that day. She is playing on the JV soccer team and they are undefeated so far with only 5 games left in the season. They are unstopable and she really likes her coach. She is taking honors english, advanced math (geometry), Spanish, and digital video.

Madison has joined the chess club and is also playing soccer this fall with me as her coach and Brent as the ref. Our team is called the Stingers and we are 3-6-2 with one game left in the season. Madison is reading at a 5th grade level and also loves math. On Friday, she got into a physical fight on the playground (she was defending a friend) at lunch recess and has 3 days of detention as a result. The funny part is that it was picture day so she was wearing a nice button up cardigan sweater and pleated skirt with dress shoes. She is a walking contradiction.
