Births

may birthdays 2032

Grace and Ben’s third daughter, Tillie Andersen celebrates her 12th birthday with her friends and family. She enjoys socializing with friends and being outside in nature. She’s closest with her youngest sister, Hatty, who is feeling a bit sad at being left behind in childhood while all her big sisters are teens.

Jefferson High has four graduates this spring, all four students have excelled academically, with two named Valedictorian.

Vivienne Russo-Traver was the highest Valedictorian, surprising her twin sister and family. She edged ahead with her cheerleading career, and she has gained a sports scholarship for Eastborough University.

Vivienne received the Scholar’s Grant, Quigley Visual Arts, Tsang Footwork, and Young Entrepreneuer Award, totalling $3500. She also scored a 54 on her SAT which grants her a partial scholarship for 50% of her tuition as she keeps her academics and sport participation in good standing.

Vivienne is undecided currently for her degree.

Jefferson High School

spring fever

april 2032
Principal: Bekah Grimsley
Teachers: Simon Millett and Rosabella Steinman
STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Everyone is struggling to maintain their drive and focus with the promise of summer freedom fragrancing the spring air. Romance also seems to be mingling in the air as well, which makes extra work for the teachers. Rosabella Steinman is covering for Brooklyn while she’s on maternity leave, and she’s rather soft since she just covered for Miriam in the fall, but she taught kindergartners which are less prone to making out.

Bekah knows far too much about the couples in her school, and she happened to see Chaz moving on after Cicely broke up with him this past winter.

Oddly, she saw Cicely smile, as if she were happy for Chaz and Lizzie with their new-found romance. It made Bekah respect the young girl more, seeing the maturity of wanting her ex to be happy.

Millett Family

once more, with feeling

(Millett Household Profile)
Merrill Millett (77 years), Grant (55 years), Leah (52 years), Nolan (13 years)

Leah has been researching how to help Nolan with his parentage. She’s also put him into counseling with Alice London, which has been helping more than Nolan will admit. Just a year prior, she felt she was losing Nolan, even when they were together, his thoughts were festering on things none of them could change. She’s greatly relieved he seems to be getting the help he needs to accept his circumstances.

Grant’s never been a proactive on anything in all his life, so Leah is surprised when he takes initiative with Alice. He calls to confirm appointments, and he calls to see how Nolan is doing. He even asks for tips on things he can do.

While they don’t have a loveless marriage, it’s not without its struggles, and this change in Grant warms Leah’s heart. For all their marriage, she’s felt a second behind Grant’s parents as he never felt strong enough to take a stand before.

McCarthy Family, Millett Family, Wedding

take my hand – millett/mccarthy wedding

previous update

Julia Millett (28 years), Elias McCarthy (25 years), Grady McCarthy (1 month)

Leah is upstairs, helping her daughter prepare for her wedding. This is her first time seeing her daughter’s living quarters in this whirlwind engagement, and she’s holding her tongue on the very “Nicole-ness” quality of their bedroom. She can’t see her daughter’s personality anywhere in the decor. She wishes her daughter would find a home of her own to have a family.

Leah knows personally the struggles of living with inlaws and raising a family, as she continued to live that nightmare. It wasn’t until recent years where she got to actually pick and purchase her first home, bringing along her father-in-law. But she’s spoken to Julia, genuinely and from her heart, many times in recent months, and it hadn’t made any difference.

Simon Millett (21 years), Milo London (21 years), Ella Carver (19 years), Lily-Mae McCarthy (19 years), Alex Welsh (19 years)

A whole summer back home, and Ella was back in Miner Hall as a sophomore now. The kinks of freshman year and dormitory living seemed easier this time around, she actually missed the freedom and noises after being gone. Monroe was on campus now, and they hadn’t talked since she’d gone away to EU. She knew he’d kept his word about college, because her sister, Marisol knew everything there was to know about anyone.
