Our weekend started with a bang on Friday. Janine was honored by the MSU College of Architecture Arts and Design with a well attended party celebrating her retirement. She was a vital part of the success of the school for over 27 years. In addition to many colleagues, friends and faculty we were surprised to have both of our children and their families in attendance here at the Jackson 5th Year center.
After the festivities the family gathered at our house for the rest of the weekend. We quickly moved from celebration to work. James, Sarah, Ryan, Taylor and Janine continued our efforts to purge and rearrange furniture to get our house ready for sale. They did an excellent job transforming several rooms into much better layouts with less clutter.
Sunday we celebrated Father's Day with gifts and cards, family church time together, a Keifer's meal and a few short moments of relaxation. Everyone headed back to their homes mid afternoon and Janine and I settled back for a time of rest from the fun but busy weekend.
