On chilly days like this, May and Ice wish the bus stopped closer to their house!
It’s nice seeing the mail be put IN the mail box.
Zep goes hunting and then rewards himself with a nice nap.
Tad thinks his definitive style has come a long ways since early days.
The house has come a long ways, too.
The teens will share Big Lemon because Tad bought himself a truck which was promptly named Key Lime by the kids, lol
Even though things are going better financially, Tad prefers to fix the plumbing himself or use it as a teachable moment for May or Ice.
That afternoon …
May finishes her homework and starts dancing around the room, playfully teasing her brother about music nobody would want to dance to when the doorbell rings.
“Saved by the bell eh, baby brother?”
It’s Marci. Tad greets her with a smile and a hug.
“Are you ready to go?”, he asks.
They are going out on their first official date.
“Tad and Marci are going to the movies. What do you think they’ll see?”
Ice finishes his homework and quickly heads upstairs to watch TV but his fun is cut short. He calls dad, apologizing for the interruption, to tell him about the broken TV. Tad tells him to call for repairs and not try to fix it himself.
Ice places the call and then heads outside to wait for the repair person to show. He opts to continue strumming his guitar and stay out of the way while their TV gets fixed.
May slipped out to pull off a senior prank at school.
She is finishing up and heading back to the car when she notices a Sim silently watching her. May smiles and nods good evening even though her heart is racing a mile a minute. “Play it cool, May. Don’t act guilty or like you don’t belong here.”, she thinks to herself.
He doesn’t say anything or call out for her to stop so she heads on her way, calmly walking even though she feels like running.
Back at the house …
May tells Zep about her adventure while Ice is upstairs watching Sim Chef Challenge.
After the movie, Tad and Marci head over to the bistro for coffee, dessert and conversation because neither want the evening to end just yet.
Eventually, it does end and Tad sees Marci safely home before heading back to his.
He’s not ready for sleep and decides to start another painting.
