May is so focused on catching the beetle, she barely notices the school bus.
She runs to the road and climbs in, hunkering down in the back seat of the taxi.
“Riding the bus is something children do”, May grumbles to herself.
Ever since the path was cleared, mail gets put in the box and not thrown on the ground.
As May rushes toward the gray brick building, she notices a Sim waiting by the doors.
“Oh look … more stuff being dragged in from the swamp”, Lolly sneers.
Tad wishes Bean were here to see how big their kids have gotten.
May is in high school and Ice will start school soon.
The garden is readying itself for winter.
Jade Greenwood comes home with May after school and they discuss favorite books before starting on homework. Jade tells her to ignore Lolly and stay away from her brother, Shark, because both are trouble and have been for as long as she’s known them.
“Ladies, you finished just in time to celebrate another special moment in the Pole family.”
Happy Birthday, Ice!
Such a serious face on one so young. Perhaps he’s wondering if he can get away with eating two slices of cake since it is his birthday after all.
Tad calls Juan and lets him know there is a slice of cake with his name on it.
Ice is a chip off the old block and Tad smiles as soon as he sees the finished artwork.
