Once Upon a Time...

there was a little girl named Sara Jane...

whose parents moved the family out of the old familiar School District after she finished the 5th grade. It wasn't far, but still...it was out of the District.
However, when the time came, this little girl wanted to graduate from the same High School her older siblings had graduated from. She asked if she could attend their old High School "Alma Mater" by requesting a "Boundary Exception".
Boundary Exception was granted and that's how she met the young man below:
Prince William. : )
Look how young they look! : )


Fun Times!!!



Will graduated from High School one year before Sara. During Sara's Sr. year and her first year of College, Will served a two year Mission for the church in Washington State. He worked very hard and had a lot of successful experiences.
When Will returned, these two had to decide if they still liked each other.
After a few months of dating, it looks like they came to the following conclusion:



Well, well, well... : )


Sara's always been a goofy kid...
I think these two are gonna be just fine. Hee-hee!

Congratulations, you two. We love you both to pieces!!
Let the games begin...all the Wedding planning that is!! : )
I haven't been around in Blogland for the last couple of weeks, but I'm planning on making the rounds again all this week and looking forward to it!

I've been away from blog land for a while too. I had no idea about your Mom's passing. So grateful for our faith and it teachings. What true happiness for your parents, even though it's hard to say good by for a time. Hugs. You have been my hero for the tender way you have taken care of your little mom. What am amazing woman you are, and I'm guessing your mom taught you how to be one! Thank you for sharing her with us, as well as yourself.
Sorry I'm a day late.(and a dollar short, story of my life...)


CONGRATS
to P.Sarah and P.William!

Love certainly is in the air at your house. Cute young couple stepping out into the future with LOVE in their hearts. Planning a wedding is so much fun. I have to say that I actually watch the show SAY YES TO THE DRESS each week and often think I should work at a wedding dress store:-) I still have my wedding dress. Now don't ask if I can zip it:-)
