Rebecca called last night with wonderful news. She and Jason (the boy that she likes) are engaged to be married. He proposed yesterday by hiding the ring in her favorite book which happened to be on the table when they arrived at the restaurant. Somewhere between "It was the best of times" and "It is a far, far better thing that I do" lay the surprise amidst a "Tale of Two Cities". I guess she didn't have to read between the lines.
They have set the date at the end of April to be married in Salt Lake City.
It makes sense now why she dragged him all the way to Lincoln, CA to meet us last month. Actually, it was pretty obvious that she was smitten by him. He is a wonderful young man and called me last Monday to request her hand in marriage. I was much obliged to honor his request. Again, we see our family changing. Jeremy and Alexandria both graduate in April and Jason and Rebecca will marry a week later. We will be spending some time in Utah in the Spring.
Things just keep getting better.
