narrated by Perla

When I graduated university, Mom and Dad insisted that I move anywhere but in with Julius. They are old-fashioned when it comes to living with boyfriends, plus they down right don’t approve of him. I may have let it slip that he was involved with some shady people, plus he lives in a run down unit as well.

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.

Lewis Traver (20 years), Rachael Darling (20 years), Zilla McCarthy (20 years), Perla Martinez (21 years), Caleb and Riley Gray (18 years), Jill Popper (18 years)

They fell into an easy rhythm. Them, alone, doing their own thing? That was the definition of simplicity.

Rachael had always felt a sense of ownership toward Lewis. He was hers, he always had been. They had both lost a parent, and they’d grown up playing on their front lawns together just outside of their townhouse as children. She’d never thought that he could be swept off by someone else, and now that he was there with her, it felt right.

Elias switched dorms after Rachael broke up with him. His twin teased that he was being the weaker man, but Elias just didn’t care about any of that. He had only gone to EU because he had gotten a scholarship, and Rachael had insisted; it had felt nice to be wanted.

Reed and Caroline Welsh’s oldest son, Alex celebrates his eleventh birthday. He had been a surprise that landed a rushed wedding. But they’ve been making the best of it the past few years, and are happy out in Millwood in their new house.

Student Enrollment List

narrated by: Bekah Grimsley

At the beginning of May, we held a Spring Formal. It was only for the high school students, and that was plenty for me. They were all very well behaved, but these types of activities make me sick with anxiety ever since Julia Millett got pregnant at our Halloween Festival.

Finn (49 years), Nicole (49 years), Julius (16 years), Elias (16 years), Zilla (16 years), Lily-Mae (10 years)

narrated by: Elias

Dad was discredited back in 2016, I was ten, and it was all over my head. The basic gist was that Dad could never go back into his Natural Science field at the university, so he’s been babysitting Grace’s daughters ever since. It was supposed to be temporary, so I don’t know why he didn’t try to find a job, but we’ve all grown used to having him and the girls’ around the house.
