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.

Elise’s is turning 32, she’d enjoy going downtown to The Red Mill, enjoying her fill of wine while a grandparent took care of Irina. But not only is there no sitter on a weekday available, there isn’t funds in their bank account for such finery.

Peter prepared pork chops and did pick up a red wine to pair with it.

Fall semester begins, and mostly Bea is thrilled to be there. She’s placed in the same dorm as her best friend, Willa, and is studying theater which is her ultimate passion.

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.

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.

Recently minted as a big sister, Mavis celebrates her fourth birthday this summer. Nadia and Luca are both immensely proud of their eldest daughter as she has embraced being a big sister quite quickly, and is full of individuality and spunk.

Like her big brother, Kai she already exhibits a great desire for knowledge and isn’t afraid to show her inexperience or disbelief when someone yanks her chain.
