First Day of School
The next brand new thing was the start of the brand new school year.
He and Emily had agreed to meet at the school early so they could be there before the crowd.
And it turned out that was a smart decision, because ten minutes later, it got very busy at The Beehive!
Lucy‘s class 3 had a good day as well. They loved their new room and their new teacher was nice too. Lucy obviously knew to keep an extra eye on Chantal though, since she’s not the brightest crayon in the box.
Over at the high school building, the kids started off with their own class mentors, who first gave them an introduction explaining what to expect this year and then moved on straight into the first lesson.
Class 4 started with music. Benjamin was real excited to get started, but it seems half of class 4 isn’t paying much attention…
For class 6 things were really getting serious this year. This year all of class 6 students were entering their final year of high school and the pressure was on. They all seem very motivated at least.
Headmaster Elliot also had business to tend to. He had a job interview!
Elliot had told his primary school team during the meeting they had over summer, that he really needed someone to tend the registration desk. Lucy had immediately thought of her sister! Of course, Susie had different dreams, but it would at least be a good job until something else were to come along. Elliot thought it was a good idea and asked Susie if she would be interested. Of course she had come interview first.
Meanwhile, Grace needed to fill the day now that Isa was in school and since the weather was still great (it was 27 degrees), she took Ethan to the beach. She wasn’t the only one! Loretta had brought the triplets there as well!
Then mothers and toddlers got acquainted. They found out their husbands worked together and their kids were all very close in age! It seems a new friendship was made.
Babies and Birthdays
More brand new things came in the form of brand new people!
First up were two brand new toddlers. It was September so that meant it was birthday time for Justin and Vicky Griffiths! The Griffiths family decided to have the birthday celebrations early in the morning, before the girls had to go to school. Annabel and Max don’t seem too happy about the idea of having two toddlers running around the house…
Their sisters were excited though! Even grumpy Ellie!
Peek-a-boo! Hello little Justin and Vicky! (New pictures of Justin and Vicky have been added to the Griffiths family post!)
After two brand new toddlers, it was time for a brand new baby! Lexie Brown was due to give birth to her second child. Since Christopher thought it would still be a while yet, he hadn’t made plans to take days off work yet.
So… you can imagine his surprise when he came home from work one day to find he had another son! Quite a surprise… Welcome Noah Brown!
(What really happened was this; I knew Lexie was about to have her baby so I activated the Brown household thinking I would play out the birth story. As it turned out; I was too late! The baby had already been born! Oops! So, I guess Chris and I were both too late. Oh, and babies who are born when you’re not there are named by the game, so, you know, obviously the Browns suddenly had a son called Bobby. Bobby Brown. *Rolls eyes* )
There was another brand new baby yet to be born though and no one would be late for that one!
The Edwards family were still eight and having dinner.
After dinner, Amy didn’t feel too well and figured tonight might very well be the night. Having had 6 kids already, she kind of knew the signals…
She decided to lie down for a while.
And yes, that night it was clearly time for Edwards baby number seven to arrive.
The delivery went quickly. And pretty soon Amy and John were the proud parents of new baby Joseph!
Although… proud…And with the arrival of baby Joseph, September was through. The trees were starting to shed their leaves and the nights were getting colder. It was clearly autumn now and that meant it was time for… Oh well, that’s a story for another time.
