Retirement Arrives

Retirement Party
June 30, 2018
As the last rays of the June sun departed in the west, so did Chris's last day of employment. With the arrival of July, she is now retired. 

To celebrate her transition from the active workforce, retirement party #4 was held at the house around the pool yesterday. It was well attended, despite the heat, and we had a lot of fun. 

The pool was definitely essential on a day when the temperature topped out at 95 degrees and the stress index made it feel like 100. Spirits were high as the celebration which started during the early afternoon spanned into the evening.

It was a retirement send-off spectacular. The food was sumptuous and the liquid refreshments were almost endless. 

All of our friends came to celebrate and I was amazed how quickly the afternoon turned into evening. 

It turned too quickly. 

Now the excitement of the rest of her life begins. Although, she really won't experience it until summer ends in September. This summer is going to be much like many others and it is not until school is back in session that her retirement is likely to become real. For now, it is time to party and celebrate.

Chris, Dad, Mom
