Rebecca! I finally got back out to the studio today, made up the slips with names on them, and took them back up to the house. Katie chose one, and Jenny was very sad, so I promised her I'll do another giveaway, soon, so keep your eyes open!
That board meeting really knocked me for a loop. There were 75 or so people there, mostly parents, but teachers, too. I've heard that people felt that it was the 'same old same old,' which is disappointing. Another disappointment was that the board member who asked that we all write out our findings from our interviews with parents and teachers, didn't even bother to write his findings up! I spent all day Wednesday writing mine--probably a good seven hours. Grrr. And the two other board members basically wrote "Everything's great." Grrr again.
But it's over, I did the right thing, did what I could. I'll have to take comfort in that.
While I've been gone from Blogland, Jenny got sick and had a temperature for two days, and KATIE TURNED THIRTEEN! How did that happen, anyway? I swear I just brought her home from the hospital all wrapped in blankets...
