After 29 years, my mom is retiring from teaching at Broken Arrow Public Schools. I made a whirlwind trip to Tulsa last week to attend her retirement party. It was nice to see how many people whose lives my mom has touched over the years. Plus, it was a blast from the past, since I knew all of the party's attendees from my years in BA. I'm so excited for my mom to have more time to do what she wants to do (and come visit me more often). Congrats, Mom!
