James & Katie | A Sentimental Ames Elementary Engagement

Years ago, a 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Huston, was captured by the caring and sweet heart of a boy named James in her class.  Today, after the providential turns of life, she gets to call him her soon-to-be son-in-law.   James & Katie’s relationship bloomed years later amidst a mission trip in South Dakota and you can only imagine Mrs. Huston’s joy when she heard just who it was that her daughter was interested in.  Throughout their relationship, the two would walk from James’ childhood home just down the street to the very elementary school where James was taught by Katie’s mom.  Roosevelt elementary.  This school had a classic wooden playground that made for a great conversation point and was even the location of their first kiss. (Shhh, don’t tell their parents!) ;)

During one of their many moments on the playground, they carved their initials in one of the trees and it still remains today, a mark of the many memories made there.  What a lovely memento.
