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.

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.

Bea had mostly taken her break-up with Jett like a trooper, as her Dad embarrassingly told her. Bea had known that him heading off to university before her might lead to their destruction. But she didn’t really believe that it would. He’d taken her to his Mom’s wedding, he actually seemed like marriage might even be on his mind, like family and her, that they were both important.

She joked with her brothers, and put on a brave face, but she felt shaken.

The kids are thrilled to be back in their own home, and away from the farm. The boys didn’t mind missing out on the wedding, but they all detested staying at their Uncle Finn’s farm for a week. He had told their parents he’d put them to work, but they’d thought it was just something adults said. How wrong they had been!

Back in 2018, Jude got let go from his recording studio, he did a stint being a birthday party entertainer, and then got a new record deal in 2019. He struggled if he should continue chasing his dream, or hang it up, and we are both glad that he kept working towards it.

He’s been feeling like the kids are growing too quickly, and with Bea starting junior high next fall, I agree with him. Neither of us can believe our Bea will be a tween soon.

narrated by: Jude

Just over a year and a half ago, I was dropped by my recording studio. I worked at Hazel’s diner for a short stint until I began to grate her nerves, and then it was clown business, where I dressed the part of a clown and entertained children. I didn’t fully mind the break, and I felt confident that it would work all work out, and likely for the better. Hazel wasn’t always as optimistic, though she tried to hide it from me.
