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. She’s not entirely impressed with her non-theater classes that are forced upon her nor the fact that her bedroom doesn’t have a window.

summer birthdays 2027

june 2027

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.

second beginnings (picaso wedding)

may 2027
Warren Dennis (49 years), Jessica Picaso (38 years), Jett and Flint (18 years)

She had been twenty when she’d had the boys, they were the beginning of her family, and she had expected another baby to follow after them. But none had. Matt hadn’t wanted another baby, but it hadn’t stopped him from fathering that girl when the boys were just five.

She’d fought for her marriage, pleading and yearning for a man that was less affectionate than a goldfish. She hadn’t agreed to the divorce until she was twenty-nine years old. He had tried to get full-custody out of spite, and was rewarded partial custody that he regularly failed to uphold.

She disliked the bastard daughter, but there had been a sort of irony when he was awarded partial custody of her too, and then his mistress died from addictions. Jessica didn’t wish the woman dead, well, she had, but never literally. But it still didn’t soften her anger towards the child, even as the boys had embraced her as a sister, she was still jealous that she existed, and her own daughter never had.

But now, on the eve of her second wedding, she doesn’t know if a third child is a dream she should follow.

Flint despises Warren. Should it matter? She can’t decide. He leaves for boot camp and to follow in his Dad’s footsteps in just a month. Despite all she has done to raise his empathy and compassion, she has failed. He idolizes his Dad, and treats Warren horribly. But he’s her son, she can’t disregard his feelings. Perhaps underneath his anger, he actually feels hurt that she’s marrying again.

narrated by: Willa

Mom has been a porker for years now, and suddenly she decided that getting skinny was her life goal. She couldn’t just exercise in front of the television like any other overweight recluse, she had to drag the entire family to Eastborough to use their campus gym, because it’s the only good one. Dad has been teaching her some exercises that he uses to keep fit for the police force, and shockingly it is actually working on her.

Spring fever has hit the halls like a brick, I have to admit that I’m suffering from it as well. It’s just been a long year of hormones, relationships, crushes, and rejection. I am looking forward to summer break, though regretfully I will spend it with Willa and her tantrums.
