With Eric and Willa
They had a lovely afternoon! They harvested many vegetables…
Woods family camping trip
Ben had planned to take his oldest children on a camping trip.
Jenny was super excited, and went to change into some more camping appropriate clothes…
But of course she would also miss her darling children.
And so, they were ready! Thankfully, Ben was able to fit all their stuff in his backpack (tents, fishing poles, you name it )
When it started to get dark, they headed towards Simhenge, where they would set up their tents for the night.
Before bedtime, Jasper told a ghost story.
During the night, the rain started pouring!
They also found a little red bird, which Jenny was quick to befriend! (She’s quite the natural with animals!)
Ben got up, and packed the camp back down, and they all raced down the hills towards the fishing pond.
They spent many hours there, fishing, throwing a ball, and eating fruit.
Later that afternoon, they walked back home, and Clara was happy to have her family back home!
Jenny told her mum all about their trip… and about the little red bird that she’d become such close friends with… and that she’d brought back home in her backpack….
Clara wasn’t too happy about it! She made Jenny promise to take very good care of the bird, clean its cage and feed it every day. Jenny was so happy!! She had always wanted a chipmunk, but a bird was so cool too!!! She named the bird Bear hugs:
Maria and Eli return from their tour
Maria: I’m done with this! I’m kicking you out of the band.
When Maria is feeling down, she can always count on her dogs to cheer her up.
The first thing she did when she went home, was to knock on his door. No one opened, so she tried calling him. No answer
He didn’t even notice that the house had changed since Amy moved out….
Eli told Jane all about the tour, and how Maria had kicked him out of the band. Jane was very understanding, but made it clear that Eli would need a real job, because they were pretty much out of money. So that’s how Eli ending up as Bimlico’s new music teacher at the elementary school
Maria wouldn’t allow Blake to keep living there, and asked her to pack her things. Alicia put up a fight (quite literally), but in the end they all agreed that Blake deserved better conditions. Like a bed.
For now, Blake would stay with Maria until they found a better solution. She would stay in the little spare room Maria had (It doesn’t have any windows. I think I was supposed to use it as a walk-in closet )
Maria: This will only happen this one time… Let’s have a hug!
However, Maria didn’t receive the answer she expected. Eric explained that they didn’t have money to provide for Blake, because… well, they were expecting a baby! (Whenever I visit Eric and Willa, I let them woohoo risky, and we all know how that goes!).
It went really well
Both girls ran to greet him, although Maria was a little nervous (How had he been while they’d been apart? Was he going to break up with her?)
Blake went to put pranks all over the bathroom ( :grumpy: ), which gave the adults some privacy.
Anthony: I don’t always understand you, but I know that I love you. Will you be my girlfriend?
(She said yes, of course )
