We are very happy for them both and wish them all the best that life can bring. Amanda will be moving to Alaska to join Matthew. In April or May (whenever he can get leave), they will return for a family wedding. Then when Matt is deployed to Iraq, Amanda will return to Riverside to stay with her family. She will be attending Riverside Community College via the internet during the Alaska stay. They both have aspirations to be teachers: he a math teacher and her a science teacher, although Matthew is also considering a career in law enforcement.
I will keep everyone updated as we get information. At this point they will be married whenever he can get down to Las Vegas for a weekend civil ceremony.
