Well, we're still in limbo.
M&L did get their schedules. They are on different teams. I called the school this morning to find out why and the guidance counselor said she didn't know and would call me back. So I don't know what's going to happen. M is -- once again -- in all the same classes with L's best buddy. Life is just not fair. That's mainly what L is upset about. M does not want her schedule to change even one iota - she is happy with it as is. L wouldn't mind being moved into M's team, but she realizes that she still wouldn't be in classes with her friend. So we'll wait and see what the counselor says. I did talk to the girls' friends who are twins, and they are on the same team. Go figure. Update: I heard back from the counselor. Apparently, the request letter was received and the girls were slated to be together on yet a third team. So she offered the option of switching to that team, or leaving things as is. As M would be extremely upset about moving, I asked her not to switch them. I did ask if L could be switched into M's team and she said she didn't think so because the Advanced Science classes were already very full, but she would check into it. But, I don't think it will be possible, and they will just have to deal with two different teams. M is happy -- L is uneasy. It's definitely a huge convenience for them to have the same teachers/classes/homework assignments/test schedules/projects, etc.
We are also still waiting about volleyball. We are waiting to hear back from one of the coaches - well, actually two coaches. We were supposed to get a call yesterday, but didn't hear anything. We will have to make a decision tonight to go with the one team that we are definite about. Which is fine; that is Lauren's first choice and not a bad option for her first year.
