On Friday, the kids and I went down to Matt's office for his *Farewell*. He has been on assignment to a specific office for 15 months. It is interesting work, but with very long hours - nights, weekends and holidays. They have a little pseudo-ceremony for outgoing staff and families are invited to attend. I was so incredibly proud of Matt. His colleagues all told me just how much they enjoyed working with him. I was touched to see purple ribbons on signs all over the office. His coworkers really got in the spirit of MPS Day.
I wasn't allowed to take my camera, so I am posting a few old photos from Matt's swearing in ceremony back in August 2006. Wavey was SO cute!! Matt, too. :)
