Adam and Haleryn were secret admirers. Adam's son Morgan started kindergarten in Room 1 at Heck Quaw Elementary, and Haleryn was the kindergarten teacher in Room 2. After months of sideways glances and surreptitious inquisition, Adam mustered his courage and said hello after school on a freezing February afternoon. They made Mexican food on their first date and went climbing on their second. Six months later Adam proposed on a silent, private lake atop two tandem paddle boards, and Haleryn said yes as easily as she'd said yes to dinner.
