one fish, two fish

Final days of summer, and Penelope spends most of her free time with Otto. She will miss him when she’s stuck back in a classroom; he doesn’t know how lucky he has it.

She calls him her happy chum, although she doesn’t quite know what the word means. It usually makes him giggle, and she can’t get enough of it.

She won’t exactly miss her Dad, he’s been kicking her butt at games for her entire life, and she’s had it. She can beat her best friend, Eileen, but she can’t beat her Dad, and there’s something extra frustrating about that, like perhaps she isn’t as good as thinks.

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.

happiest time of year

Kenzie Goss (66 years), Tyler (64 years)

After raising children for about forty-six years, it was time for Kenzie and Tyler to downsize their home. Dean was a junior at EU, and it didn’t sound like he’d be needing his old bedroom after graduation. He didn’t know exactly what he was going to do, but he had options, and so they sold their home.

august birthdays 2029

Irina Schehl celebrates her first birthday with her family, a bigger celebration planned for the weekend.

Her parents are certain that she is the sweetest toddler to have ever been born, and while Peter is ready to start trying for another (this one took several years to conceive after all), Elise is ready to focus on her career and not fertility charts.

Scarlett had always believed that television did not depict reality, as such she had anticipated college being full of studious students; she had been woefully mistaken. The greatest punishment was that she had been placed in Willa’s residence hall. She’d said all along that she should have been in Miner Hall. Willa was gorgeous, thin, a model, and terribly viscous.

narrated by: Lorelei

We saved money to get our backyard fenced this spring, and Marshal insisted we needed a garden to teach Penelope the value in nurturing things. I readily agreed, thinking a garden would be less work than a pet, but I may come to eat my own words on that.

narrated by: Kenzie

I’ve had a more difficult time with Dean moving to university, than I expected. He moved out all of his belongings and furniture aside from the bed, which the dorm supplied, and I find myself sulking in there when Tyler is occupied. He doesn’t approve of the mopey attitude, but I miss having him home.
