Alexia Standing

Today was our final work day before the Board of Governor's meeting tomorrow and we are ready. Members of the board have been invited. We will gather at 3 PM Sunday at the new office and, when everyone is there, we will hold an official ribbon cutting ceremony. Then we will walk across the street to the White Star Hotel and hold the board meeting in the Lounge and the hotel will serve tea and refreshments.
It is 11:30 PM and poor Katie is sitting at her computer churning out 10 copies of our handouts -- Agenda; Project Categories for Accounting Purposes; Proposed Budget for This Fiscal Year; Jean's Recommendations to the Board; and the (proposed) Annual Report.
The final thing I have to do is prepare my remarks on what to do about the library; I'll be laying out a range of options from turn the library over to the School for Hearing Impaired Children to continue operating the library and negotiating a Memorandum of Understanding with the school.
And, on another note, yes the child is standing. On her own. For minutes at a time. and you should see her do sit ups, We push her back on a pillow and whoop - she bounces right back up. We set her on the couch and she sits up for 20 minutes looking around, gurgling and laughing. I am amazed at the changes I have seen in just a little over 2 weeks.
It has been such a joy having Katie here to assist me. She is so gracious and observant and perceptive. She has been a huge help!
