The boys were in high school, and with Hazel’s Mom living with them, it made sense to downsize. Hazel loved living right off Lincoln Park, that it took waiting before the perfect house became available. It was a two-story, but much more spacious for holidays and hosting, which was very important to Hazel and Mandy.

We got news that our aquarium was awarded the research funding that we requested. It meant two whole months outdoors on the ocean side of Audubon Island, exploring, tagging, really getting our hands dirty. I was listed as Lead Researcher which meant that Avery could help, but she’d have to take my orders and continue to run the aquarium.

Isaiah and Maeve Gavigan’s daughter, Margot turns one the day before they sign on their new house out in Millwood.

They are both eager to give Margot a sibling, and their two bedroom apartment didn’t fit their needs anymore. Maeve is saddened to leave Margot’s nursery behind for some new tenant to paint over. Isaiah has promised that the new house will make an even better nursery.

Otto turned one earlier this month and life had gotten much easier. Sure, he got into mischief, but he could speak better, move if he was uncomfortable. If he wanted a banana, he could actually let her know.

However, he still kept wonky sleeping hours and would randomly wake the household with his screams.

The last few years had brought a great deal of chaos to the Browning household. Nadia’s bookstore would celebrate its fourth anniversary in May, and it finally seemed to be making a steady income. They weren’t going to retire like a Rockfeller this lifetime, but it was enough.

Kai had started working part-time, mostly the weekends. His Mom didn’t mind if his friends stopped by as long as they weren’t rowdy. Books were a shared passion for Kai and his Mom, and he didn’t mind helping out; it didn’t hurt that it gave him an income to spend on more books.

Notes: Exactly two years ago on this day, I posted my Round 10 summary… I have finally finished the eternal round 11. As I mentioned previously, the Browning family got skipped, but I’m just bumping them to the top of this round.

Caitlyn has breakups in the last two rounds, hopefully she finds someone to stick this upcoming round.

Thank you to everyone who has commented, liked, and read my posts here and on tumblr, you keep me encouraged to keep posting and also playing, just like many of your own hoods and photos have done the same. Long live TS2!

Here’s to hoping that this next round doesn’t take a lifetime.

The youngest of the Krouse family turns one this January. Otto is rather shy and serious just like his Dad. Thankfully he’s pretty happy to entertain himself, which makes it easier for Lorelei and Marshal to get dinner on the table.

Penelope talks with classmates on the computer after school, while Otto eats toys more than playing with them.
