Meet the McRae Family. Whitney is the new church primary chorister in my ward. She is super cute and the kids just love her. Micah and Whitney met while going to college at SUU. Whitney was a cheerleader at SUU and Micah had just gotten home from his LDS mission in Mexico. They lived in the same apartment complex and Micah tutored Whitney in Spanish. They quickly became best friends and got married a year later. Shortly after that, Micah decided he wanted to become a nurse anesthetist. Micah and Whitney both finished up pre reqs at SUU and moved to Henderson, NV to start nursing school. They loved Henderson so much that after school they stayed there and worked as nurses for 2 years. They waited a long time to be blessed with a baby and it was the happiest time of their life! They love being parents and it showed during our session. Micah got accepted to a nurse anesthetist school in Rhode Island. So, 3 months after Nixon was born they packed up their happy Nevada life and moved 3,000 miles away to Rhode Island to complete nurse anesthetist school, a 2.5 year journey. They are a long way from home, but they are enjoying their crazy adventure out here on the East Coast! Something funny about them: when they were first married and in college, they had a paper route together. Every morning at 3am they got up and delivered 400 newspapers…….rain, shine or freezing cold in a blizzard…..every day. That was how they got themselves through college. Their cars always smelled like a newspaper and they always had black ink smudged everywhere! It was fun getting to know this little family more and seriously isn’t Nixon a doll!
