Derek and Kelsey had been planning a spring wedding since before Covid-19, and decided rather than put it off for an unknown length of time, they would have a very small ceremony in Sedona in March, and then hold a reception for family and friends at a later (post-Covid) date. The event was live streamed, and we all got online and watched the beautiful ceremony. We look forward to celebrating in person with them while viewing their beautiful new Chandler home soon.
Nathan and Megan both graduated from college in May. Megan kept hers low key as she had a big HS Grad party four years ago, and she is in the midst of wedding planning. But Nathan being home schooled missed out on a HS party, so his folks threw a big shindig to celebrate his amazing accomplishments of graduating at age 18, Summa cum laude, and being accepted to med school (two schools, in fact!) We are very proud of him.
On February 26, Christian Thompson proposed to Megan and she said “Yes!” They will be married on September 16 in Boise, and plan to honeymoon at a Mexican resort before settling into a condo in Meridian. Brian and Carrie and I have booked a vacation home together for several days that week to spend time with the family and enjoy the wedding festivities.
Since Nathan has a rare few weeks off between college and med school, Steven flew down to spend a week here in scorching hot Arizona with him. Those two boys have been very good friends and I’m so glad they still get to spend time together occasionally. We still have such great memories of the trip to Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone in my RV in 2017.
It’s been a fun year of endings and new beginnings.
