Going back in time... back of course to the popular July 2011 time frame, while we were visiting our family in Washington, my mom had a retirement party. She started working at the school as long as I can remember. I remember in kindergarten, she would come in to play the piano for music time. I think she was hired on the year after that maybe when my younger brother started kindergarten. She has gone through the whole circle of having kids of the kids she taught in kindergarten. She will be missed, and she will miss doing it too.
The kids kind of got bored greeting people they didn't know, or at least my kids did. When it was clean up time, my kids or should I say Amber went crazy. She wouldn't leave poor Thomas alone. She kept hugging him and hanging on him and following him around. I think it was okay with it for the most part. He was a good sport. Amber sure loves him!
