Dean had graduated from EU, and since his longtime girlfriend, Evie had cheated on him, and they’d broken up; it meant he had to move back in with his parents. Kenzie and Tyler had sold their family home, and they’d moved to a one-bedroom bungalow, never thinking Dean would need a home with them again.

Now their son is stuck sleeping on the sofa, and Kenzie feels terrible she couldn’t provide more for him.

She suggests to Tyler that they help Dean buy a house.

Final days of summer, and Penelope spends most of her free time with Otto. She will miss him when she’s stuck back in a classroom; he doesn’t know how lucky he has it.

She calls him her happy chum, although she doesn’t quite know what the word means. It usually makes him giggle, and she can’t get enough of it.

She won’t exactly miss her Dad, he’s been kicking her butt at games for her entire life, and she’s had it. She can beat her best friend, Eileen, but she can’t beat her Dad, and there’s something extra frustrating about that, like perhaps she isn’t as good as thinks.

This was the first year Mrs. Lucy would be teaching sixth graders, as the school district had recently voted to implement the change. She felt much too old to be dealing with these sorts of things, but she took it on the chin. Oliver would be graduating in the spring with his Masters in Education, and he was likely taking her place the upcoming year as principal.She would miss the students though, and walking the halls with their chattering and exciting stories.

Otto turned one earlier this month and life had gotten much easier. Sure, he got into mischief, but he could speak better, move if he was uncomfortable. If he wanted a banana, he could actually let her know.

However, he still kept wonky sleeping hours and would randomly wake the household with his screams.

january birthdays 2030

The youngest of the Krouse family turns one this January. Otto is rather shy and serious just like his Dad. Thankfully he’s pretty happy to entertain himself, which makes it easier for Lorelei and Marshal to get dinner on the table.

Penelope talks with classmates on the computer after school, while Otto eats toys more than playing with them.
