We have had our first marriage proposal in Krinkeland. The recipient was Benjamin. The proposer was his friend and classmate Kate.
This is a photo of the happy couple from our church festival last summer, so I guess I should have seen this coming. They even dress alike.
Benjamin was a bit reticent to tell us, probably afraid for our reaction... And initially just reported on his day, "Kate said I was cute." I later got a more complete report when the mother of the bride informed me of her daughter's intentions. I asked Ben about the proposal, in front of his father and sisters, and our boy immediately flushed all shades of pride and embarrassment. "She asked me in the lunch line, in front of everyone!" Well, what did our Benjamin say? "I said 'Yes,' of course!"
