We had my mother's retirement party on Saturday. After many years of teaching, she has called it quits...at least for now. I'm sure this isn't the full end of teaching for her. It's in her blood and she does a great job with it.
The party was great. Everyone had a good time and the chocolate fountain was the hit of the party. Well, except for when we attacked her with silly string courtesy of my mother-in-law. It's the start of a vengeful war I'm sure.
After the party, family came back to my parents where we sat and talked and caught up for awhile. It was nice to have everyone together. That rarely happens.
Happy Retirement, Mom! I'm proud of you and the job you've accomplished.
