Congratulations, Mama!

Future Hairdresser? That would be great! Maybe she'll give her mama discounts!

My mom retired just a couple weeks ago. I've been so busy that I'm just getting around to posting about it!
Posing with Mama & Daddy at the table of honor. There were two other retirees.
The Superintendant had a few words to say. The man speaking was the principal when I worked with my mom at this school. The woman with the tissue was also retiring. She's the principal.

Allyson insisted on eating her lunch at the Table of Honor with Nana & Papa. I don't think anyone minded.

My mom's moment of glory. She had worked in education for 37 years. That's amazing to me!

Here's our family that attended the retirement luncheon.
L-R: Allyson, Me, Aunt Janice (my mom's sister), Baby Carlee, Glenn & Phyllis Schliebner (my parents), Robbi (my sister), & Caleb (Carlee & Caleb are my sister's kids-I may be really detailed with who's who, but I just want everyone to understand the relationships. Relationships can be so complex, ya know?!)

I love this picture of the kids. The older ones had just been talking to the baby. She's so angelic. Allyson really loves her cousins. And, being the oldest is cool!

Congratulations to my mom for working so hard and being able to reap the rewards of finally doing what she (or my dad! lol) wants.
I'm so proud of her. She was a media specialist. And, just like everyone keeps telling me, I'm following along in my mom's footsteps. :)

What a nice ceremony! I personally can't imagine sticking with any job for 30 plus years! At least she enjoyed it.
