narrated by: Paloma

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.

Births

july birthdays 2029

Nico Pacelli turns thirty-seven, and is spending his birthday planning his upcoming wedding. Originally he wanted a low-key affair, while Erin definitely wanted the dress and the ceremony. They may have spent more time compromising, but his family jumped in with all their opinions and Nico knew that he was definitely outvoted.

They’d hired Eva who likely regretted her entire career path since having to work with his Mom and sister-in-law, Ginny. Nico knew his Dad was ready for the ceremony to be over with, he was exhausted being dragged to every which place, asked his opinion, and then ignored entirely.

John Russo (76 years), Zeke Traver (46 years), Morgan (45 years), Cicely (15 years), Vivienne (15 years)

Morgan had to work on the twins’ actual birthday, so they’d gotten permission to go shopping with some girls from school, and they scheduled the family pool party for later in the month. With great persistence, the girls had talked her into a co-ed birthday party. They insisted that turning fifteen and being banned from boys was archaic, and Morgan wasn’t swayed. It wasn’t until they exclaimed that Lewis had ruined their lives did she relent.

Hadley Millett (24 years), Julia (22 years)

narrated by: Hadley

My sister moved in with me this past month, we shared a room our entire lives until university, so it isn’t that much of an adjustment, except that I live in a one bedroom student rental. It’s not exactly allowed, since my unit is for Med students. It barely matters as I’m rarely home, so she just steals my bed on those nights.

Student Enrollment

narrated by: Lucy London

After years of having a large influx of students, we now are leveling out at a more reasonable rate. It’s made it possible to offer more opportunities for parents to be involved during the school day, especially now that we can host them in the cafeteria for lunch. Oliver held a Parents Day, most parents still work during the day so it doesn’t have a giant turn out, but it was still good fun for the kids.
