Kaela was in high school and Robert was in college. Ok, the part everyone used to freak out about is over.
Robert's mom was one of Kaela's teachers, but more specifically, one of her theatre directors. Robert often came home to help his mom with the plays. This is how they met, during a play called David & Lisa, but not when they started dating.
It wasn't until the summer community musical, Pippin, came around and both Robert and Kaela were both involved - That's when things really first clicked.
