Mom here for two weeks

Actually, my mother has already returned to the states, but our internet wasn't working for about two weeks. She really enjoyed her time here, meeting the Christians, and spending time with Adele and Benjamin. It was in the 80's when she got here at the beginning of September. The day she left it was about 45-50 and rainy. She is planning on coming again when she retires in a few years
