My Ever-Growing To Do List

Just when I saw a little reprieve in my schedule following the graduations and the two parties we hosted for our graduates, Melanie (WSU) and Brendan (Kamiakin HS), comes one of the biggest events a family gets hit with . . . an engagement!

Our daughter Melanie became engaged to Daniel Thompson over the weekend!


Here they are at Melanie's graduation, obviously. :)

No date has been chosen yet, although I'm anticipating a short engagement. Daniel has been hanging around here for seven years and has definitely earned his place in the family doing a lot of tree trimming, stump removal, and general landscaping help. The guy knows how to work!! Anyway, after seven years I think they know each other very well and probably will want to get on with their married life as soon as they can!

So stay tuned; there will be lots more action around here in the coming weeks/months!
