Update on the Valiquette kids

Michael and Allison are doing well at Shenendehowa and Siena. Along with Michael winning the Karigon logo his name is going to be on a book cover, I'll explain. Several years ago there was a lady that was in an abusive relationship and her husband eventually beat her to death. Although that is very sad the best friend of the lady wrote a book about it. She conducted a national search for the book cover and Michael submitted a photo that won. So the short of it is that his picture will be the book cover. He gets to go to Minnesota for the book signing and he is very excited about that. His track coach told him he will most likely get a division 1 scholarship for track so we are hoping the combination of track & field and his knack for graphic design will get him into a good college. Allison is doing very well at Siena. So far this semester she has straight A's. Hopefully that will get her into Notre Dame for law school with no problems. She moved into a dorm room and that took some time getting used to. To summarize, both kids are very smart and doing well. Thank god they don't take after their father.
Love to all
Joe Val
