Ella Carver graduates Jefferson High with a 59 SAT score; she was one point shy of a full-ride. However, she was very pleased to receive the half-tuition, especially when paired with her other scholarships.
She received four scholarships with the Dannon Local Award and McCarthy Assistance Fund being the most prestigious. Her social worker, Kenzie helped her fill out the paperwork for the McCarthy Fund, as it is for adopted children.
She’s studying music, although she isn’t sure what she will do with it yet.
Ella Carver celebrates her eighteenth birthday with a trip to EU. She hasn’t decided yet if she will attend next fall, but she’s pretty positive she will be accepted. She takes her final SAT test this spring, and then she will need to make her decision.
Her sister, Marisol didn’t come to the tour. They’ve never been very close, and Cesar hasn’t been successful in his attempts to bring them together. Manny came though, he’s always been Ella’s cheerleader, and the most akin to her and their late Mom.
Both of the men in her life are really pumped at the idea of college for Ella.
The hospital had scheduled Paloma’s induction for five am, which meant that they had to rise well before the sun. The trees were beginning to blossom and bud, and it felt right with Paloma to be entering the season of rebirth with the delivery of her twins.
Her family knew of the induction, and actually beat her to the hospital. Her sister, Linnea had come in the night before from EU, and despite Paloma insisting that she’d call as soon as the babies arrived, they came to wait.
Linnea Barthelet (21 years), Itzel London (21 years), Rafael Martinez (21 years), Simon Millett (19 years), Milo London (19 years)
Linnea is struggling her senior year to focus on her classes. She’d decided in high school that her greatest ambition was going to be Interior Design, but with her sister expecting twins, she could only think that her family needed her.

Our bakery was celebrating its one year anniversary, and we had decided to release a blueberry cheesecake to commemorate the occasion.
We had gotten into a routine with Adam cooking breakfast while I got ready, but recently I was coming down with him and rummaging through the fridge.

We celebrated our tenth anniversary this month; we went down to the small cafe in Millwood and kept it simple. It’s hard enough these days to get time at home together, let alone an evening out. As it happened, it was a Wednesday evening, and we had the place to ourselves.
Isaac Gavigan turns 29 this February, and after a hard night of partying, feels lucky that he gets to carry his very drunk wife home. Lauren is going to feel it in the morning, and Isaac thinks that brunch is in order. He’s really hoping that this year will go slower than the last few have; he feels ill-prepared to turn thirty.
