On Thursday, the school district that my Mom has worked for the last 28 years threw a retirement party for her and two other coworkers. I was able to make a switch with my coworker so I could attend and I am so glad I did. It was such a nice party and I got to visit with so many people.
The party was held at Huston Vineyards on Chicken Dinner Road north of Marsing. I am familiar with the Huston wine but this was my first time actually out at the winery. It was such a cute space and perfect for entertaining a small group.
It was a nice day and there was a lot of shade with table and chairs set up. They were each given a homemade quilt made from the t-shirts from each of the schools in the district. What a wonderful idea!
I bought a bottle of Chicken Dinner White to share (but ended up drinking quite a bit of it myself) and they had some appetizers. The party lasted for two hours and then we went back to my parent’s house for pizza, salad, and beer.
I am so happy for my Mom. She has worked so hard and given so much of her time to the district office that it is her time to relax. I know she is a little nervous about retirement but I am sure she will find a new routine and enjoy it.
Congrats Mom on the next chapter of your life.
