Daughter News – Engaged, Learning Arabic…

My clever and generally wonderful daughter Jessica just announced her engagement to be married to long-time boyfriend Matt Holmes (also a Junior, Matt studies at the College of William and Mary). Jessica is learning Arabic because she will be a student at CMU-Q (Carnegie Mellon University Quatar, in Doha) next semester. She will be home in about two weeks but then she is off on a family ski trip with the Holmes family. Jessica will be back from skiing just before Christmas and leaving for Doha during the 2nd week of the new year. Somewhere in there we need to hold her engagement party and celebrate her 21st birthday. Matt’s Mom and I are trying to work out party dates and arrangements now…

This will be a busy holiday season for our families!

8 December – Jessica’s story ended up on the blog for the company which sold the engagement rings:  Turtle Love Committee.

  1. Congratulations! I’m sure it will be a busy and incredibly exciting holiday season for you.
    Arabic is the most beautiful language in the world, I’m so glad Jessica’s learning it.
