Today is Cali's 21st birthday. Cali is my oldest granddaughter. She has loved with us most of her life, first coming to be in our home when she was 6 weeks old. God, what a beautiful baby and what a lovely young woman she has grown all too fast into (not a grammatical sentence, I know). She is now in college, my own campus to be exact. She is also the student assistant for our department (ah, nepotism at its best) and helps us run the annual conference. This weekend is the conference with Gary Paulsen and Marc Brown. Cali has run packets, dealt with hundreds of registration forms, arranged for food, sent out forms to exhibitors, and still managed to carry a full load of classes. Send her all your good wishes, folks.
