He Finally Asked!!

Well, after a year and a half of patience and persistence, asking me if I was married or had a husband yet, he finally proposed! The nicest second grade boy I could ask for, that is...He was a little shy though, so he did the next best thing he could - sent the letter via a second grade girl that said, "Can we get merry?" I didn't give him an answer yet...

Oh the joys of teaching! I have to give him credit though - he was very persistent, making sure each week for the past year and a half that I didn't have anyone for him to compete with!

That was yesterday, but today I think he decided that maybe proposing out of the blue was a little fast, and a date might be in order he wrote me again today:

"For Miss Wincker - From *C - Can we go on date? Yes or No" I could only laugh and smile, and I think I turned a little red too! haha This time he delivered the note himself.

I'm trying to think of a way to say no to him nicely...don't want to make him too sad!

  1. Alicia,

    Hey it's Ashley (Fannon) Redburn - I just found your blog through Bethany's. It's so nice to read up about your life and your heart for God! Lincoln and I are going this spring to pick up our twin 6 year boys that we are adopting from Ethiopia and I would love to hear your advice about traveling to Africa and any good suggestions of Godly activities we can do with the kids at the orphanage while we're there!
