We interrupt this non-regularly-scheduled programming to say Happy Retirement to my dad!

In 1986 my parents moved our family to Astoria Oregon and they bought a dental practice and we settled in as Oregonians. I lived in Astoria for about 15 years before Bill and I got married and I became a Washingtonian.

Yesterday was my dad's last day at his practice! He will continue dentistry with the Air National Guard but as far as private practice, he's retired. So, Congratulations! Thank you Dad for working so hard these last 25 years to serve the people in Astoria and provide for the family.

And I would be remiss if I did not also congratulate my mom on her retirement from the school district back in June. Obviously she's been retired for a while now, but still, Congratulations! Thank you for working hard for me and David and our family.

Now we're excited to move into a new season with Mom and Dad as retired parents/grandparents!

Congratulations to your dad. That's a big, fun mark to hit. And to your mom. Enjoy this time with them! And I loved Della's birth story in the previous post. So beautiful. Way to go, mama. Happy New Year!
