What a great but exhausting weekend!

Dan, Jack & I, along with Grandma Sharron, Aunt Kelly & Courtney, and Andy, Lynn, Hannah, Jack & Laura Weissend all went to Chicago to attend Danny's graduation from Navy Basic Training. The ceremony was powerful and moving. Danny's division won Hall of Fame. We all stayed at the same hotel so we hung out and got to know each other was a great time.
The big news of the weekend was that Danny proposed to Hannah and she said yes! So we are getting a Daughter in love. (I much prefer this term than in law) We went out for an engagement party dinner at a Brazilian Steakhouse and some stranger paid for Danny's (who was in uniform) dinner and thanked him for his service to our country. Danny answered "My pleasure" what a fine young man he is...another tearful moment. Danny has asked Jack to be his Best Man which (also) had me tearing was a very emotional weekend for all I Slide show of photos to come.
Hannah is a very sweet girl who loves God! She is coming to visit us and Danny (mostly Danny I am in a few weeks and we are looking forward to getting to know her better. Can't wait to see you Hannah!
Danny is now in Pensacola FL for his A school. Dan is at Pensacola Christian College getting trained in the Abecka curriculum until Thursday night...hopefully he can have dinner with Danny one night.
For those of you who don't know Dan will be teaching 6th grade as well as teaching Math for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade at Calvary Chapel of Sarasota's Christian school. We are praising God that Dan has a job! We are staying in Florida for Jack to graduate this coming year and we don't know whats next...But God does...please keep us in your prayers.
