April 2016: University Part 2

Spring 2016: Colin Pitts and Kea Kwa are 19.  Brice Kwa is 4 months old.

Although Brice was a surprise and not the best timing Colin and Kea have taken to parenthood very well.

Colin's parents are often over to help out so they can get some sleep or studying in.

Time spent with friends isn’t as much as a party like it was the previous term.  Now it’s just study groups at their place.

Kea is actually glad she is out of the dorm this semester what with all the drama going on there.  Gabriella filled her in on all the details on morning over pancakes.

Both Colin and Kea realize how lucky they are, Brice takes regular naps so they can get studying in.

Brice also has started sleeping through the night which means they do to.

    Colin has a 2.3 GPA
    Kea has a 3.5 GPA
      not bad for students with an infant.

April 2016: Universtiy

Spring 2016: Gabriella Gorey, Penny McArthur, Ira Chin and Steward Newson are all 19.

A lot of drama happened in the spring semester.  All of it started when Penny was eating breakfast and one of the freshman started asking questions about Gabriella and Ira’s relationship. 

Gabriella came down for breakfast and asked more questions for this freshman. Annie said she was in a relationship with Ira and thought that things where over between him and Gabriella.

Penny went to Stewart to see if he knew anything about this supposed relationship.  He did but had decided to keep quiet.

Stewart said it was a private conversation between the boys when he found out about Annie and he didn’t see the need to get involved.

Gabriella then cornered Stewart in the bathroom to tear a shred off of him for not telling her about Annie.  What kind of friend was he that he wouldn’t tell her?

Then Gabriella went to confront Ira.  It didn’t go well.

Stewart was obviously immune to the tension in the dorm as he went back to his usually evening routine of playing video games.

Steward did nothing college related other than going to class and he is now on academic probation.

April 2016: Upsnott

April 2016: Kenneth is 60, Brittany is 59 and Alexis is 8.

Kenneth:  Every morning we have breakfast together.  I always make breakfast, Brittany eats more now but she’s still not great about making meals.

Brittany and Alexis leave at the same time in the morning.

That leaves me with a nice quiet house to work on my next novel.

At the end of the day we take turns putting Alexis to bed but I think she prefers Brittany because of the silly voices she does when she reads stories.

March 2016: Thayer

March 2016: Henry and Meadow Thayer are 24.

Henry:  Grace Thayer was born March 16th, she has my eyes but everything else we’re not sure who she looks like.

Madison and Andrew where waiting to welcome us home from the hospital

A few weeks after Grace’s birth we moved into our new house.  It was supposed to be ready before she was born but it wasn’t.

We had the family over to celebrate Grace’s birth and our new home.

Frederick is crazy, it’s March but he insisted on playing with the sprinkler that he bought for Grace.  I don’t think he realized that his niece won’t be playing with it for a few years yet.

I love coming home to our place and Meadow after an evening game.

On the evenings when I don’t have a game or practice we often watch movies once we have Grace down for the night.

 I always take a look in on Grace before going to bed.

February 2016: Brandon Becker

Brandon Becker is 24

Brandon: I'm not sure I was meant to be a father,  I love Helen and when I go over to visit I like holding her but when she's not around I don't really think about her much. If I do I feel guilty that I haven't thought about her.

I love spending time with Loren too but I’m not sure she’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.  I’m still attracted to other women as much as I am Loren.

With it being a mild winter I find myself in the park down the street from my apartment building.  It's a great place to meet new people.

Sometimes I do like to spend the evening at home alone, that’s defiantly something new.

January 2016: Miriam and Justin

Miriam Nova and Justin Flylar are 24

I don’t get to see Jacob as much as I should, he lives just down the street and can walk over anytime. We’ve started trying to have dinner every week.

Tamara doesn’t always join us.  I know something is up as Jacob seems more relaxed when she isn’t around.  I guess he’ll tell me when he’s ready.

About once a month we’ve been trying to get the college gang together for an evening out.  We don’t tend to go anywhere fancy, it’s often just out to a diner downtown.

It’s always great to catch up even though we are all in very different places in our lives.  Edward, Claire, Ivy and Daniel with young kids.  Bailey, Juan, Miriam and I happy being child free.

With being a starter on the Chantilly Football team I’m being recognized a lot more at the gym.  I usually don’t mind it but occasionally there is someone that will just follow me around.  It can get a little creepy.

I'm now making a lot more money so Miriam and I decided to buy a vacation home instead of a house in Chantilly.  My parents recently bought a large cabin in Three Lakes so we decided to buy a small cabin there too.

It needs some work but for now it’s a nice place we can go to get away from the city even if it is only for a few days.

December 2015: Becker

1Becker Dec 2015 December 2015: Kevin and Holly Becker are 66. Claire Becker is 28, Edward Becker is 26, Julian is 4 and William is 1.

2BrothersEdward:  Julian and William are the best of friends.  They never fight over toys and are always running to hug each other.

2Potty Despite the age difference we are currently potty training both boys.  William just wants to do everything that Julian is doing.

3Date1 We get so much help from my parents so I’m always glad when the take the chance to go out for the evening on their own.  Mum always complains that all Dad wants to eat is cake when they go out but I think she inwardly smiles at it.

3Dance They always talk about how the music was good or bad for dancing. Lately they seem to be enjoying the music.  I’m sure they also play a bit of pool, it’s their favourite pastime and has been since their university days.

4Hotel We took the opportunity to spend a night away from the boys.  It’s the first time since we became parents.  There is a new small hotel in Bluewater Village that we decided to try out.

4Bubble Bath The first thing Claire did was have a long bubble bath with no worry about being disturbed by one or both of the boys.

4drinks We went down for pre dinner drinks and then dinner.

4Piano After dinner  I spend some time playing the piano in the lobby.  There was a young boy staying there that seemed to really enjoy it.  I think Claire did to.

snapshot_557d6f61_6260c13f The morning before we left Claire had a massage.  It was a really nice to get away and we will defiantly come back to this hotel.

5 HomeAgain The break was defiantly what we needed, we didn’t seem to mind the next morning when the boys came to our room way too early to play.
