Try again

Narrated by Adrienne Novak

After I had Sylvia, I went to stay with my parents for a little while, just for a break and to be around family. It was nice but I had to come back to reality sooner or later.

You say it's your birthday, Autumn 2026

The new carpets haven't even been laid in Evan and Ione's new house but the twins don't care about carpets. They're coming right now! They'd better get to the hospital.

Beetlebum

Round 27: Summer 2026

Arianna Weaver is 71, Liam is 63, Jonas Lachance is 48, Tatiana is 43, Dominic is 16, Audrey is 14, Edward is 11 and Brendan is 3.
(Malcolm is 16, Julia and Hope are both 15 and Charlie and Jack are both 14)

Narrated by Dominic Lachance

Audrey's friend Jack just started dating Julia Gray and I think Audrey would like to believe this means he's not interested in her any more.

He still seems pretty interested to me. I'm supposed to keep an eye on Charlie and Audrey while they're over here and Jack barely takes his eyes off Audrey, even when Julia's standing right in front of him.

Kids, Summer 2026

Round 27: Summer 2026

Principal Tatiana Lachance is 43, Pamela Gray is 41 and Finn Romilly is 25.
Students: Chris Draper, Lucy Gray and Edward Lachance are all 11, Oliver and Sebastian Gentry are both 10, Anthony and Veronica Moretti are both 9, Noah Gottlieb and Adelaide Sitko are both 8, Mitchell Carmody is 7, Eddie and Louisa Gentry, Jessica Royce-Nihill, Emma Gottlieb and Timothy Lane are all 6 and Austin and Lauren Carmody, Justin and Xavier Moretti and Declan Romilly are all 5.

This update is going to be a little bit more commentary-style than usual. The game was not co-operating for this and I ended up playing the school over 3 or 4 sessions. So it all got a little disjointed but hopefully, you can still enjoy some cute pictures!

As there are no pre-schoolers this year, Pamela Gray will be teaching kindergarten, while Tatiana keeps the Grade 1s and 2s.

(Nick is 23)

Narrated by Abigail Carmody

For the last several months, I've been feeling really on edge. I've been so nervous about Nick and this whole paternity test thing with Adrienne. A few days after the baby was born, Nick received the results and found that he'd been excluded as the father. These tests are supposed to be completely accurate and I couldn't be more relieved.

Evan and Ione Moretti's second set of twins are just around the corner, which means they should probably get started on that whole moving thing! The babies are coming in autumn and they're not going to fit in the tiny fourth bedroom in their current house.

Lately, I've been considering moving the shop to a larger place. Business is so good now that we're really cramped for space. Customers lining up at the register are getting in the way of those who are still browsing.

Sometimes I look at Josh and Jessica and wonder when I got old enough to have an 11 year-old and a 5 year-old. It seems like they've grown up so fast!

Round 27: Autumn 2025
Last update: Adrienne/the rest
Narrated by Matilda Jacobson

We're all in a new dorm this year, because our old dorm closed down, to be replaced with an even better one. Apparently. This new one is pretty great though. Ethan is totally loving the greenhouse.
