July 05: Windiwell Revisited (Pt. 3)

Go back to…

part 2

Unfortunately, Lison wasn’t the only one catching the flu. Kylie got ill too and had to stay in bed as well.
With Kylie out of the running, the task of entertaining the teens fell entirely on (childish) Don. And the ideas he had weren’t always met with much enthusiasm. Like his plan to go the ranch. Although Molly, Holly and Kyra liked this, the rest of the gang was rather bored here. And it turned out it wasn’t much fun for the girls either, as there were no horses available to ride.

Molly did ask this local lady if she could perhaps ride her horse, but she wanted none of it.

However, Molly persisted and eventually, the lady said yes. Molly was over the moon! She missed her horse Butter and was happy to ride again.

Don then took the kids (apart from Molly, who he allowed to stay at the ranch. In a strange town. By herself. While he is responsible.) to the football field, which they liked a little better. Jeffrey and his new friend Elliott had a little one on one and Logan and Khalid took turns showing one another what they could do with a ball.

And Don played guitar…football skills

Holly challenged Ben to a shootout as well, but Ben is much more athletic than he may seem, because he caught every ball she tried to get in and scored every time while she was in goal.

Silas and Kyra meanwhile only had eyes for each other. Screenshot-229

Don showed his maturity by giving Jeffrey a scare. At least someone was having a good time…

Screenshot-236

Apart from Don, the kids got fed up with the football field before long and they all went back to Windiwell to spend the rest of the afternoon doing their own thing.

Molly and Holly immediately went to take in some sun.Screenshot-237

While friends Logan, Jeffrey and Ben did the thing they love best: fishing!

Screenshot-238

Kyra and Silas had a game of gnubb…

..and some closer contact.gnubb romance

Don also had to take care of dinner, so salad it was!

Screenshot-247

After dinner, he made a fire, so they could have marshmallows for dessert.

Screenshot-253

Both Don and Khalid burnt theirs though.burnt marshmellows

Jeffrey didn’t join the group at the fire, he had something much more interesting to do. He found a bird! A nuthatch! How adorable! He decided to try and bring it home and named it Noosa.

Screenshot-256

Holly and Khalid also wandered away from the group after a while for a bit more stargazing before bed.

Screenshot-267

Another day, another breakfast. Which Elliott ate by himself at a separate table… And hey, look who’s up!breakfastThankfully it had only taken a few days for Lison and Kylie to feel better again. Which was a good thing, because the end of their stay was fast approaching.

The plan today was to go windsurfing! Yeah! All teens (and Don) loved this plan!
windsurf

They stopped at the field again. It looked like Noosa was already feeling quite comfortable with Jeffrey because she (he?) showed up there as well.Screenshot-281

Waterballoon fight!

Screenshot-283

In the afternoon, the wind turned and they all got back on their boards to return to the beach. Don stayed behind, because he wasn’t done windsurfing yet.

When he eventually did come back he approached fast and showed up his skills by navigating his board through the swimming kids.

Screenshot-285

While Don was actually quite proud of what he could do with his board,  Kylie was getting fed up with his childish behaviour and took him apart to give him a piece of her mind.childish

“What were you thinking out there?! You could have taken someone’s head off! Stop being so irresponsible! You’re an ADULT! This camp isn’t about you having a good time, it’s about THEM having a good time! And I hear you even left Molly alone on the ranch a few days ago! You’re so childish Don, I don’t know if I can do this with you anymore!”

Don thought Kylie was overreacting.

While Don and Kylie were fighting, this happened in the background….
unexpeted flirt

Wow… Was it because Kyra had something going on with Silas now? Was it jealousy? Whatever it was, Logan, who never paid anything other than friendly attention to Kyra, suddenly couldn’t stop flirting with her.
It confused Kyra greatly. She didn’t flirt back. But this was still Logan…

***Note: as stated previously, I don’t control flirts at Windiwell. I saw Logan flirting with Kyra whilst focused on Kylie and Don. She really is a good girl though and despite it being Logan (whom she’s had “kiss wishes” for ever since she became a teen), she never flirted back. She responded with shy smiles to all his flirts, but then proceeded to “ask about day” and stuff like that. He however, couldn’t stop flirting with her and holding her hands and giving her amorous hugs…)

Molly witnessed the whole thing with interest. Was this so she had something new to gossip about with Holly? Or was it because she wanted to tell her friend Silas someone else was showing interest in Kyra?

No. It turned out Molly was this interested because it gave her an idea. Holly had kissed a boy. Kyra had kissed a boy and now even had another flirting with her. Even Lison had kissed a boy (Elliott, in the very beginning, after they just arrived). She didn’t want to be the only girl not getting kissed this summer! So when Jeffrey stepped out of the water, Molly approached him.

waterflirt

“Wow… You’ve gotten so tan. It looks good on you…”
“Ummm, thanks?”
“Come with me to that tree, I need to show you something”
“O…kay…”

And so Jeffrey joined Molly under the tree and she didn’t waste any time making her move.
She caught him completely by surprise and he didn’t know what to think at first, but hey, if a girl kisses you, what’s a 16 year old boy to do?

another kiss

***Note: it was actually really funny. Molly watched the scene between Logan and Kyra with interest and then went straight up to Jeffrey -whom she only talked to a few times up until then- and started flirting with him. The wish to kiss him came up almost instantly too. So I interpreted it like she didn’t want to be the only girl going home unkissed.***

The last days passed quickly and before long, the last night was upon them. This year, they would leave on a night bus after their karaoke night.

First it was grouppicture time though!

Silas and Elliott had the last kitchen duty.last washing up

After which Silas shared a moment with Kyra on the platform.rendezvous

And Molly and Jeffrey discovered a lizard.

Screenshot-333

Then it was time for the traditional last night stuff. Karaoke started a bit earlier than usual due to the fact the bus would leave around 11.Screenshot-335

Despite their argument and the fact that Kylie still didn’t think she could do this with Don another year, they did do the opening number together. Because he is a good singer.

Screenshot-339

The kids, with the exception of Ben, also seemed to like it.

Screenshot-337

Molly and Holly, or “The Ollies”, as they had started to call themselves, also did a duet.

Screenshot-343

The crowd seemed less enthusiastic this time round…

Screenshot-344

Kyra and Lison, Logan and Jeffrey and Silas as a solo artist also did a song. After which all of them had the wish to be professional singers. I don’t think that’s a good idea for any of you, kids, sorry…
sing

After karaoke, they all got their bags.

Don told a final ghost story while they waited for the bus.

Screenshot-356

And then it was over and they started their nightly busride.

Screenshot-359

It was morning when the bus arrived in Honeycomb Valley where Kyra, Holly, Logan and Jeffrey had to get off and were greated by familymembers and dogs. home

Kyra started to tell her mother everything about camp. Although… not everything obviously. Silas was kept out of her stories for now. I mean, this is her mother.
Screenshot-365

Even though they were happy to see their parents again, both Holly and Kyra sent their parents away and told them they would come home by themselves so they could say goodbye to their friends and summer romances in private.

Blank squared

After goodbyes, Molly, Silas, Benjamin, Lison, Elliott and Khalid got back in the bus which would take them home as well. Bye bye lovelies, it was so much fun to spend this summer with you! We will miss you!

Screenshot-374

And with that bus leaving, July had ended, but summer had not yet! Oh no, summer still had a lot more in store for Honeycomb Valley… But more on that another time!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Where do we go from here?

So, now that the bus has left and the group has been split up again, what will happen to the friendships and more intimate connections my simmies made at summercamp? And what will happen to summercamp itself after that fight between Kylie and Don? Will there be another Camp Windiwell next simyear?
Truth is, I don’t know. As far as the friendships and romances are concerned, it’s not entirely up to me as Sandy, Sara and Alex may have plans for their simmies as well. But this is my view on it;
Kyra really likes Silas. She’s not the type of girl to just go around kissing boys for fun. So she wouldn’t have kissed him if she didn’t really like him. I think that from her end she will surely try to keep things going with him for a while. However, as we could see, one look from Logan and she still melts. Her crush on him is deep rooted. If he keeps all this flirting up, it will cause serious dilemma’s for our Kyra. The moment on the beach already quite confused her.
Holly is different. She wanted to kiss a boy this summer and that’s what she did. I don’t see her as the type of girl who takes her summer fling with Khalid very seriously. She will probably text him a few times and wouldn’t be against a few more kisses if they’d ever meet again, but if she meets someone else, or he does, so be it. It’s all good.
Jeffrey is not entirely sure what that kiss with Molly had been about. It was just that one kiss, even though they did hang out a lot after it. I can see them staying friends, but if she wanted more, he would be open to that as well.
As far as Windiwell goes. Hmmm… I’m starting to think I’ve gotten everything out of it that I could have gotten out of it and things are becoming a bit repetitive. I’ll have to see how I feel when summer rolls round again. Time will tell.

Lastly, to my dear Sandy, Sara and Alex; thank you for your teens, I’ve had a blast with them. I’m sorry some of them didn’t get as much “screentime” as some of the others, but dividing attention equally between this many sims isn’t always easy. I also had to limit the number of pictures otherwise this would have been a 5 part story! But here are two bonus pictures for you:

The Ollies being silly (this wasn’t posed!)

  1. Ohh dear, poor Kylie! What? A visit to the ranch is a great idea! Hahaha, that’s great of Molly to be so persistent that she finally got to ride the horse 😀 Hehe, maybe Don just forget about her? Counting to ten is hard, dude!

    Whoooaa, Logan’s got mad skills with the football!! Ben is pretty cool to! Aaaw, and the romance is really blossoming between Silas and Kyra ❤

    Hehe, sun bathing seems like a typical thing for Holly&Molly to do 😀
    Love the campfire pictures! *claps* Jeffrey found a cool bird!!
    Good to see that Lison and Kylie are doing better!

    How cool with some windsurfing! *claps* Wow, Jeffrey must have a natural way with animals!

    Oi, Don!! Watch out for the kids!! Hehe, good thing Kylie told him off *chuckle*

    *HUGE GASP* KYRA!! Don't break my boy's heart! Molly is a witness!! Oh, but it's typical! logan only notices her because someone else has – the "logic" of love *rolls eyes*

    D'aaaw, you write Molly so well, Kim ❤ That is definitely how Molly would think. And yes, my oh my, Logan has become very tan indeed…. SUCCESS! Phew, I was afraid Molly would eave Windiwell being the only girl un-kissed *lol*

    AAAAAAW, the group picture is FANTASTIC, as always!! Silas look totally in love and Molly&Holly's poses are perfect!!

    Aahahahahaha @ Silas' reaction to kitchen duties!!!

    Ohh, the Romance Platform ❤ ❤ I just LOVE the Windiwell campground!!! ❤ ❤

    Karaoke! Great tradition – and good for Kylie and Don 😀

    OMG, YES!! "The Ollies"!!! That's perfect!

    Bwaahahaha @ all their wishes.

    Nooooo, it's time to say goodbye!

    (Typical of Don to tell a ghost story JUST before they all leave on a (now) spooky midnight busride!)

    Aaaw, what an awesome welcome the Honeycombers got ❤

    "Where do we go?" – Ohh, I hope Kyra and Silas can meet up soon again. They are so cute together, and they seem to really like each other ❤ But Kyra's crush on Logan won't just go away. But who knows what will happen? 🙂

    Hahahaha, I love the goofy "Ollies picture"!

    Oh, Kim, I loved your story! I totally understand how it must seem repetitive to you – you have played it THREE times. Well done for that!!

    • I don’t think Don forgot about Molly, I think he was just being irresponsible.

      Yeah, I was impressed by Logan’s football skills as well. He and Khalid should participate in this current World Cup I think. 😉

      Jeffrey is always with the animals, and he doesn’t even have the animal lover trait! I think it’s clear he’ll need that when he becomes a young adult though! I see a vet in Jeffrey!

      Kyra was being good there with Logan, she tried to distract his flirting all the time, by casually talking. She does really like Silas.

      Hehe, you just created such a good character with Molly, it’s easy to get into her way of thinking!

      Ah yes, of course Don had to tell a ghost story before leaving. Why not, right? 😉

      Thank you for all your lovely comments, my sweet, it’s been a blast to read them!

  2. Awww, a visit at the ranch! That’s nice!! I totally picture Holly, Kyra and Molly being in Heaven!
    Wow, Logan is incredibly talented with a ball! *applausing*
    Ahaha, Molly and Holly taking sun while the guys are fishing!! *lol* These are all such typical activities for these ones! (I liked how Khalid or Silas didn’t join the fishing gang!)
    Sure, Silas had better things to do! I’m sure that Kyra doesn’t even regret to not sunbathe with her best friend right now! 😉
    Awwww, firecamp! Your firecamps are always so gorgeous, Kim! ❤ ❤ ❤
    It's so Jeffrey to have adopted a new friend!! Noosa looks gorgeous!
    Good to see you again, Lison sweet!
    Windsurf!!!!!! Yeeeeeeeaha!!!!
    Awww, and look at this! I love this picture of Noosa and Jeffrey!!! So cute! ❤ ❤
    Wow. Wow. Wow. Logan flirting with Kyra?! My goodness!!! He would have done that few days earlier, she would have been in Heaven! I totally understand she can be confused!!! Awwww!!! But she didn't flirt back! Wow. I wonder how this can evolve!
    Awww, Molly and Jeffrey! I didn't expect this! Indeed, if summer camps aren't made to kiss boys, what's the point?! 😀 (huh, Lison is vexed to death by the "even Lison kissed a boy").
    Aww, picture group!!! So lovely!! I love these! ❤
    The Kissing Platform! Aha, how many kisses this one has seen, huh? 😀
    Molly spent more time with Jeffrey! I didn't think she would!
    The final karaoke!!!!! YEAH! This is always such a good show!
    Ahaa, Don might be childish, but he certainly knows how to entertain the teens! Great idea to tell them a ghost story just before their departure! *lol*
    The Ollies picture is priceless! 😀
    Awwww, these were fabulous holidays! (well, maybe not from Lison's point of view! :D)
    Camp Windiwell is always so much fun! I totally understand why you can feel a bit fed up, though! Maybe you'll be back to it later, with another generation of teens? Anyway, it was a FANTABULOUS STORY, Kim!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Ah yes, sunbathing was important to the Ollies. They wanted to keep up with their tans! Holly was actually quite remarkable as she got a tan the first day at Windiwell and then whenever she lost it, she had a new one less than an hour later.

    Can you believe Logan? Wow! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Indeed, where was this behaviour a week ago?

    Hahahah, “even Lison kissed a boy” is Molly’s interpretation of the situation, not mine! In between breaking up with Elliott and falling ill, Molly didn’t see Lison flirt with anyone, which is weird to her, since there’s so many boys at camp! So yeah, in her eyes, “even” Lison kissed a boy.

    I’m not exactly sure how many kisses there have been on the platform… I’ll have to look back!

    I’ll see how I feel about Windiwell next year!

    Yours were FANTABULOUS COMMENTS my darling! I love how you always interpret things sims do exactly the way I interpreted them! ❤

  4. Okay I did read this at the time and then got deathflu and lots of things happened so forgot to comment ❤ Aaand here comes the comment!!

    Well! Elliott claims that he had no idea that she was thirteen…oh dear 😀

    Aw I love that they wrote their plans on their photo! What a great idea! Perhaps Khalid wrote his with a crayon lol! He doesn't have much to say 😀

    Oh well, how expected…Khalid arguing with someone!! Never mind.

    I like how most of the teens know someone from before and pair off almost automatically 😀 Molly and Holly seem to have picked up where they left off 😀

    Ben ❤ I love this boy and I love that he comes across as grumpy and serious…yet here he is sliding down a bannister 😀

    Aaargh Elliott, she *is* thirteen, you can't be that mean with a thirteen year old girl!!

    At least Kyra and Silas seem happy 🙂

    The cycling photo is great 😀 It looks like a sunny day and they all appear happy ❤

    I'm glad that Khalid and Logan are getting on a little better. Khalid doesn't mean to annoy people…it's just that he's a little…well stupid and overconfident 😛

    Wow, I'm surprised that Elliott can actually skate! All that falling about at home has paid off 😀

    Kyra and Silas look good together 🙂 Logan needs to start paying her attention soon if he's interested!!

    Ah some blonde distraction! The younger three Farsis seem to like that (well to be fair Drew is strawberry blonde)! Holly is beautiful! Edyta or not, I'm sure that Khalid was very happy!

    Hahaha! As much as Elliott is my sim, I totally side with Lison here! Elliott, you're an idiot!! You've been so mean for the entire stay! Learn from this! Aw Jeffrey, I'm sure that Elliott appreciates having someone who'll listen 🙂

    Well Holly and Khalid seem happy at least!

    Well done for being subtle, Khalid lol. Yay it paid off ❤

    Aw poor Kyra! It's horrible when your best friend seems to prefer someone else over you 😦 Well at least Logan listened 🙂

    Haha Lison seems to love the swan boats whereas the boys are completely over it 😀 Perfect!

    Oh dear the old swimwear/boxers problem again….and with Khalid lol! Happy for them though 😀 Khalid will at least return home happy!

    Aw and Kira and Silas!! He seems to make her really happy 😀 Maybe that puts things with Logan into perspective for her?

    Oh no 😦 This isn't poor Lison's trip is it? Feel better soon, love ❤

    Oh dear…Don running things spells disaster. I can only imagine how this will turn out (well I lie…I know what happens as I read it months ago 😛

    That was nice of the lady to let Molly ride her horse 🙂 She seems very happy and confident on the horse although maybe a helmet would have been a good idea…Kylie would probably agree! Wow, nice work leaving her there, Don! Very responsible!

    Ben is surprisingly athletic! I noticed that too when he came to visit. He hides it well!

    Aaw Kyra and Silas seem to be having a great time with each other ❤ I'm really pleased to see Kyra get lots of attention 🙂

    Good idea for dinner, Don. Salad can rarely poison anyone!

    Well Elliott looks like a real social butterfly! He probably doesn't even notice that he's on his own ❤

    Don's care of the children just gets better and better 😀 Wow! Kylie may actually kill him!

    Well Logan! You had your chance! I'm glad that Kyra didn't flirt back 🙂

    Haha Molly is rather forward 😀 It seemed to work though!!

    The crowd seem….startled by the Ollies 😀 Wow they must be…they must have unique voices lol!

    I really enjoyed reading this both times!! Thank you so much for inviting my two boys to camp and putting up with them 🙂 Sorry for not commenting on this sooner, the last couple of months have been rather eventful ❤

  5. I think for the sanity of the parents, it’s a very good thing Kylie is involved with the summercamp. Otherwise I can imagine some parents wanting a word with Don…:O
    It looks like the gang had more fun at the football field than at the ranch though.
    Watersports! Love the pictures of them windsurfing! ❤
    Woah, didn't see that coming, Molly and Jeffrey!
    Naww, that group picture looks lovely! But Elliot looks so sad!!! *hugs* I know he wasn't nice to Lison, but he still looks so sad!!!! ❤
    I really laughed at them all wanting to be professional singers just because they sang karaoke *rofl*
    I could totally see how you might be getting a bit bored with playing it again though. I love reading the Camp Windiwell stories, but I can imagine playing them could feel repetitive a lot of the time *hugs*
    Great update! ❤
