Logan and Kai celebrate their birthday this month. They walk home from school, and empathize with eachother about their crazy sisters. Logan always wins the most pity with Mallory; she’s been throwing more tantrums than ever since their Mom got married.
Logan doesn’t think it’d be bad if his Mom had another baby, but Mallory swears she’ll run away if she does. Kai doesn’t even know what to say, he’s always been happy with his little sisters, and loved his step Dad Luca too.

We got news that our aquarium was awarded the research funding that we requested. It meant two whole months outdoors on the ocean side of Audubon Island, exploring, tagging, really getting our hands dirty. I was listed as Lead Researcher which meant that Avery could help, but she’d have to take my orders and continue to run the aquarium.
Elise’s is turning 32, she’d enjoy going downtown to The Red Mill, enjoying her fill of wine while a grandparent took care of Irina. But not only is there no sitter on a weekday available, there isn’t funds in their bank account for such finery.
Peter prepared pork chops and did pick up a red wine to pair with it.

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. Lainey was a bit of a dictator over groceries that I mostly just paid her and picked up my own stuff after work. It’s actually a decent time with Julia though.
Oliver McCarthy celebrates his 32nd birthday in the quiet of their home. They are both exhausted with all the wedding planning, and intend to do all their celebrating at their wedding instead. Brooklyn is fine with that, currently four months pregnant, and she’s finding herself exhausted between teaching her high school students and planning the wedding.
Avery and Eden Fink celebrate their respective birthdays of 34 and 15 with some Chinese delivery. Being a single Mom isn’t intuitive to Avery, but she’s doing her best. In a few years, Eden will be the age she was, and she really hopes that she doesn’t go out, partying, and sleeping with strangers. Eden is the best thing in her life, but she could do without the deadbeat donor that helped create her.

narrated by: Lainey
We managed to survive Michael joining the police force, and Silas is doing fine with the babysitter, although I still don’t think the situation is ideal. I installed a nanny-cam so I can keep an eye on her, and found that she watches an insane amount of television. However, Silas always seems happy and she does tend to his needs, so it’ll do for now.
Logan Traver celebrates his eleventh birthday and prepares to start sixth grade this month. Family has always been important to him, and when he learned of his half-sister, Eden’s existence, he immediately wanted to befriend her, so Erin isn’t surprised that he’s retained that into his teen years.
He’s glad that he resembles his Mom more than his deadbeat Dad, and has requested a new surname. He’s hopeful that Nico and his Mom will marry, and then he’ll request to have their last name, otherwise he’s thinking Louie like his Mom and Aunt Bethany. He doesn’t think Colin deserves acknowledgement in his life, but Erin is hesitant to agree as he is still young and prone to impulsive decisions.
