Etienne transitions into Fatherhood seamlessly, and now Noémie is a toddler, he’s hitting his stride.

The youngest Pacelli grandbaby, Antonia celebrates her first birthday surrounded by family. She won’t be the youngest much longer with Erin due in four months. She enjoys the limelight in the meantime, and everyone is sure she will be fast friends with her newest cousin in due time. Besides, Ginny knows Erin’s little pride and joy won’t be the youngest for long, as she’s expecting again, due in January. It wasn’t quite the Christmas surprise she was aiming for, but January will do just fine.

This was the first year Mrs. Lucy would be teaching sixth graders, as the school district had recently voted to implement the change.

narrated by: Alice

Having Julia for a roommate has been great, we’ve been close friends since grade school. We don’t mind doing mundane things together ether, like meeting up on Thursday after work, and getting groceries together.
