Grace and Benjamin’s middle daughter, Isla celebrates her fourth birthday. She’s been exhaustively impossible her entire life, and they are really hoping that her childhood years are less trying. She’s already decided though that she is not going to preschool in the fall; they can only hope it grows on her, as she has a long career in education ahead of her.
Simon Millett, the youngest child of Leah and Grant turns eleven this summer as well. He’s looking forward to the freedom of his teenage years, he can work on his bug collection, and escape to the library without his family worrying about his location.
The Millet’s middle daughter, Julia graduates high school with a C+ average, she’d held a 4.0 GPA before getting pregnant with Nolan. Now everyone is just relieved she got her diploma. She scored a 42 on the SAT, and earned two scholarships, Dannon Local Business Award and Quigley’s Visual Art for her work on the violin.
She’s decided to go for a Political Science degree with hopes of being a Journalist one day with no plans of ever living in small town Millwood again.
Meg Schehl graduates Eastborough with a 3.9 GPA, she’s hoping to make it in the screenwriting business. In the mean time, she is living in a small apartment in South Port and working as a photographer at the modeling agency.
Meg’s twin brother Peter graduated Eastborough with an Art major and a 3.7 GPA. He hopes to draw his own comic book, like his sister he’s fascinated with horror, and plans to merge the two. He is even allowing his sister to write the screenplay, if his graphic novels take off. In the mean time, he is finding an apartment to live with his girlfriend, Elise in South Port.
Rebecca and Quint are expecting their fourth, another December baby. Rebecca still hadn’t lost all her weight from Wyatt, and is finding herself with a huge sugar craving this time around, she’s concerned she’ll be the size of a boat when it’s all said and done. They would be happy with just a healthy baby, but would love for Wyatt to have a baby brother to play with, two of each would be an extra slice of perfection.
Owner of Planet Java, Ginny Pacelli is six months pregnant, and getting to the final stretch. They are hoping for a son, to not steal any limelight from their daughter Gemma, and to experience the variety of raising one of each. She’s taken her maternity leave early, being unable to control her stress at work, finding herself struggling at the task of managing her crew.
Notes: I was surprised to see how much Lulu looks like her Mom, even more so than her sister Rachael. Both of Cara girl’s are quite pretty, which surprised me because I never found Cara to be particularly pretty. All in all, really happy with Cara’s genetics! 🙂
I got DNA strings finished for everyone, Meg and Peter ended up with glasses, they were the only ones in their immediate family to get them now. I was pretty excited over it, being that they are twins, it just gives them another layer of similarities.
Julia used to have the LTW of top journalist, I don’t do LTW’s anymore generally, because they keep getting reset. But she also matches for the journalism career, so she is going to continue with that path. She’s had zero interest in school since Nolan, so I don’t know if she will be inspired to do college work.
I adore Simon! He ended up requiring freckles with the DNA string, making him even cuter. He looks so much like Leah. Both of their daughters look just like Grant’s Mom Norma (down to her red hair even), so I was surprised to have this little Leah offspring. He’s totally perfect for the family, and Leah, who has always had a difficult time with Norma and her meddling. He’s just a sweet, geeky guy.
