    Life on the farm
    Day 11

    The family enjoyed Eggs Machiavellian for breakfast :)
    43753107552_d8415cf04d_o.jpg
    Moss's waking wish was to play tag with someone. Finnian's was to visit the local pool but that wasn't going to happen. Fortunately he rolled a wish to talk with Mikezumi over breakfast :)
    43801272071_1f452566e8_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to garden so I got him started early.
    43084755454_190d76e691_o.jpg
    When it was getting close to the time the boys had to leave, I stopped the game of tag and had them chat until the bus arrived. I loved how Shannon looked at the boys as he rode past :)
    43801262831_9fe36f375d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi helped Shannon out after preparing a meal for the fridge.
    28865286707_139e27b941_o.jpg
    When the gardening was done I let Shannon fish for a while. He rolled several wishes while fishing which were easy to fulfill :)
    43801255391_47345da765_o.jpg
    When Mikezumi finished her share of the gardening she joined Shannon and also got several fish wishes :)
    43801253531_62acd256d8_o.jpg
    No, she didn't roll a wish to prepare a meal using the black goldfish ;)
    43801250701_3ab42076e3_o.jpg
    I sent them inside to do what they wanted before the kids came home from school.
    43801248481_54fd26b1e7_o.jpg
    Yep! Shannon instigated this ;)
    29931440378_c378b47c8a_o.jpg
    When Shannon headed off to one of the tractors, Mikezumi tried to read but I had her prepare another meal. She's getting close to fulfilling her wish to prepare 10 perfect meals :)
    43801244371_38a5a36b86_o.jpg
    I got a popup that Shirley Templeton was coming home with Moss.
    29931438488_eb7e340458_o.jpg
    Mikezumi read while Shannon did a few more rounds with a tractor. I have seen Shannon watering and fertilizing autonomously but I suspect that harvesting is by direction only.
    43801242701_2b3fe30db5_o.jpg
    The kids did their homework together :)
    43753086022_7928f271f5_o.jpg
    Moss came home with a wish to catch a bug. He missed his first attempt.
    43753084242_e5b2cf27b2_o.jpg
    But managed to catch a butterfly from a nearby spawner.

    Day 11 (cont.)

    Shannon introduced himself to Shirley. Finnian was chatting with a classmate as he had come home with a wish to hang out with him.
    29931425768_0ee887da8f_o.jpg
    When Moss got back from catching the butterfly he asked Mikezumi about her day :) He discovered that she was a natural cook while they were talking. Like that wasn't obvious already since he has been eating her perfect meals since he arrived! ;)
    43753078682_6dca8b1e1c_o.jpg
    I saw Shirley heading to the kitchen. She was helping herself to cookies. No-one complained so all was good :)
    42897734025_9a01bfbb1d_o.jpg
    The family chatted before dinner :)
    29931426968_41aef0c865_o.jpg
    I had to see at least one cheek pinching while the boys were still kids! :p
    28865246887_a08f68e3dc_o.jpg

    43753065682_90e25b06ce_o.jpg
    If Shirley had of waited a little she could have eaten with the family. I was glad to see she cleaned up after herself.
    43753064282_28f225795a_o.jpg
    Shirley and Moss played on the see-saw together :) Finnian worked on his painting.
    29931424238_e2fc84f090_o.jpg
    43753060672_ed3b19a5ae_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars :)
    43753059172_b2ff63c3a2_o.jpg
    When I saw that it was Shirley's birthday, I sent her home. Moss played in the treehouse :)
    43753055922_24f0792cf4_o.jpg
    43753055472_f2468e3c7e_o.jpg
    Mikezumi had a wish to play a game with Shannon. She also had a wish to chat with Finnian. When Finnian finished his painting I had him chat with Mikezumi while they played.
    43753054792_68be696082_o.jpg
    Finnian joined Moss in the treehouse and Shannon and Mikezumi watched a little TV.

    Day 12

    The family had waffles for breakfast :)
    42025598350_7d512e0d99_o.jpg
    Moss's waking wish was to find a rock. There was an active spawner at the water tower near their house. I noticed that there are gem spawners on the lot but they haven't spawned yet.
    28897600217_b7e0a5aea0_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to paint. He'd already finished his previous painting, so I had him start another.
    42025597410_8c0de195a4_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to play a game with Mikezumi. I still haven't relented and given them balls ;)
    28897599167_ed4cee4bfc_o.jpg
    When Moss got home he played on the block table and mastered it before it was time to leave for school :)
    28897598547_3c9b140359_o.jpg
    Because sims can't walk across the tractor paths while the tractors are in use, I had the boys go to the bus stop before Shannon and Mikezumi started gardening.
    28897597747_3a4548724a_o.jpg
    Although Finnian was at the bus stop it took off without him! :# Fortunately kids spawn bikes when they need to get around.
    29964067298_9e0eb10ef4_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon got start on the gardening.
    29964066418_cab028120d_o.jpg
    29964065668_d2f757c2d7_o.jpg
    Mikezumi rolled a wish to read 30 books. She needed two books to get her wish so I gave her two comics which can be read quickly :p
    28897594917_e2b0434c9f_o.jpg
    Shannon reached level 5 in logic while playing chess which triggered a wish to make Bladder Flow potion.
    29964064418_f2bac7ab21_o.jpg
    Shannon was about to go to a tractor when Mikezumi finished her comics. Mikezumi had other ideas ;)
    29964063838_d0d593cb5a_o.jpg
    Yep! Mikezumi instigated this! :D
    28897593267_372ea0a536_o.jpg
    Mikezumi tried to go to a bookcase but Shannon wasn't done with her yet :D
    29964063028_792cd80aa4_o.jpg
    When Shannon got his kiss he left to water the garden. This suited me fine because I wanted Mikezumi to make her first batch of nectar using the morning's harvest :) Her first batch used 5 cocoa and 5 strawberries. I called it ChocBerry Dream. Because I had her use the mass produce option the value of the nectar was not high (§46 a bottle) but it is an amazing recipe and will gain value soon enough.
    28897592527_587f86cc0e_o.jpg
    I watched her for ages and was about to despair that she wouldn't fall into the barrel!
    28897592087_7815c06045_o.jpg
    Just before she finished squishing the fruit, she obliged :p
    28897591427_20cef54257_o.jpg
    When I sent Mikezumi to the basement I thought the lights weren't bright enough so I replaced them. Shannon, of course, had to see what I had spent his money on ;) It's a good thing I don't have Seasons because the basement would flood! I couldn't find any room in the house to place stairs to a basement level and I also have a terrible time building basements under houses with foundations. I have done it but didn't like the look of it.

    Day 12 (cont.)

    Mikezumi needs to make 3 more perfect meals to get her wish to make 10 different perfect meals so I sent her upstairs to prepare hamburgers, Moss's favourite.
    28897589507_9b7f8776f1_o.jpg
    The kids got home late because of Scouts.
    28897589097_0774fb6689_o.jpg
    When she was done with the burgers, Mikezumi baked an Angel Food cake.
    43117030634_e0925ec3ec_o.jpg
    I loved the way the boys both turned to look at Shannon when he came in. "We did our homework, dad!"
    28897588547_5eee6cb35e_o.jpg
    The family had a few minutes to kill before dinnertime so I had them chat so they wouldn't wander off to do something that would make them late for dinner :)
    43117030244_e4dc5764ed_o.jpg
    They ate the burgers that Mikezumi prepared earlier :)
    43117029814_e73fab68d7_o.jpg
    I bought another easel and sent the boys outside to paint. Moss isn't artistic like Finnian but he does love the outdoors so probably doesn't care what he's doing as long as he's outside :p
    29964056588_e0337083d0_o.jpg
    Mikezumi rolled a wish to play a game with Shannon over dinner. "Give us a ball already!"
    43117029284_2c2b0e054e_o.jpg
    Finnian rolled a wish to play catch with Shannon over dinner.
    29964055388_bc56c90a1f_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars before bed :)
    43117028564_39ea1e0a59_o.jpg
    43117027484_2a6a041faf_o.jpg
    Moss came home from school with a wish to set a booby trap. "I'll get you for wanting to send me to military school!"
    29964053868_d51b173cb0_o.jpg
    43117026734_c3b95f61a3_o.jpg
    29964053368_5729940f0b_o.jpg
    Shannon rolled a wish to group up with Mikezumi. I won't give him that so I let him give her flowers instead.
    43117026274_49114e4349_o.jpg
    29964052888_d289b61396_o.jpg
    The boys shared a joke before going to bed :)

    Day 13

    Moss rolled a wish to fish before 6am :)
    42043442080_b337a17e75_o.jpg
    Mikezumi came to breakfast in her new sleepwear. Granted bloomers are probably a little old fashioned even for RH but, being an elder, Mikezumi would probably have worn them in her day ;)
    42948421325_8eafc4cfa5_o.jpg
    The family had waffles for breakfast :)
    42043441480_645de00743_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to weed. I had her weed the money tree because they need to be cared for - not that I have ever had one explode but better safe than sorry ;)
    42043441120_696020327f_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to use the costume chest :)
    43803769722_cab55b8ef9_o.jpg
    42043440870_27bc57e5ae_o.jpg
    Moss had a wish to level up in painting locked in from the previous day. He got his wish before the school bus came. Finnian wanted to play in costume so I sent him downstairs so he wouldn't be late for school.
    43803769132_963ac45737_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to spar with someone. Mikezumi will not be learning MA so he's out of luck. I knew he would roll many wishes during the day that I could grant and gardening makes him happy :)
    43851919211_04a7bcc394_o.jpg
    Mikezumi helped out.
    43803768282_3081112fb1_o.jpg
    Both of the boys got on this bus this time :)
    43851918401_f3e3be7198_o.jpg
    I gave Mikezumi the recipe for stir-fry and she got her wish to prepare 10 different perfect meals :)
    43803767532_b8afe0980d_o.jpg
    The boys went on a field trip to the Theatre :) Ainsley Andrews was chaperone.
    43851917771_4c9013f13c_o.jpg
    42948415235_810bc8a54e_o.jpg
    The Theatre is right by the beach :)
    43803765802_24ebfbd878_o.jpg
    Back at home, Moss's booby trap got the wrong target! :D
    43803763992_97b3af0e82_o.jpg
    42948412915_d86e53ec87_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon had a good laugh about it afterwards ;)
    43803763212_2b28c0e4a3_o.jpg
    Shannon, knowing the prank was meant for him, felt sorry for Mikezumi and chose her favourite woohoo location ;)
    42948412425_f8a443af0d_o.jpg
    That corset top needs to be tightened! :D

    Day 13 (cont.)

    I checked that both boys got on the bus after the field trip.
    28915459047_30186a4618_o.jpg
    This is the first time I have seen Mikezumi use the computer. Although it is anachronistic I keep a computer in the house for easy access to Nraas mods. I should be glad it has taken her 13 sim days to find it ;)
    43851914311_1f01e5443d_o.jpg
    The boys did their homework when they got home :)
    43851913971_9a1406cfbb_o.jpg
    The boys filled their fun bar before dinner by playing catch :)
    28915458037_423269aaf5_o.jpg
    Shannon would ride the tractors all day long if Mikezumi didn't lure him away from time to time ;)
    43851913331_4d8c410087_o.jpg
    Mikezumi read while Shannon was busy. I wanted her to make another nectar but discovered I had forgotten to plant raspberries in the garden.
    28915457377_c500c05739_o.jpg
    The family enjoyed the stir-fry Mikezumi prepared earlier :)
    43851912811_e828abd9dc_o.jpg
    The boys worked on their paintings after dinner. Finnian rolled a wish to reach level 8. It will take a while but he had empty wish slots so I locked it in.
    28915456737_4614720a80_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon watched the stars until Shannon received a message that Andromache Thebe's party was about to begin.
    43851912321_cbd29c7387_o.jpg
    The whole family attended :)
    28915456337_8f2aba28f1_o.jpg
    I felt sorry for Andromache because she obviously needed to use the bathroom and Shannon wanted to talk about gardening :p
    43851911901_60e734df40_o.jpg
    Finnian had a wish to meet someone new so I had him introduce himself to Consort Capp.
    42043432460_9fe0b5a9b2_o.jpg
    I sent Mikezumi inside to prepare a cheese plate.
    43851911451_d4d044a205_o.jpg
    She chatted with Andromache after she had relieved herself.
    42043431980_4ff8f3d852_o.jpg
    I was sad to see that Shannon knew all of Finnian's traits but none of Moss's :( I had them talk for quite a while and he still doesn't know any. No wonder he wanted to send him away because he doesn't know how sweet he is! :(
    42043431680_9520be1460_o.jpg
    Sorry the pics are dark. I was shocked when Michael Dandy appeared out of nowhere and started harassing Finnian with his cane :#
    43851910731_92ec447740_o.jpg
    42043431050_707846cfed_o.jpg
    I had Shannon go over and give him a rude introduction but before he could finish my sims were pushed home as the party must have been over.

    Day 14

    It's Saturday and the family enjoyed French toast for breakfast :)
    43142111004_2498fd0c7b_o.jpg
    Moss rolled a wish to talk with Shannon and Shannon rolled one to play a game with Moss. I was determined to improve their relationship so sent Mikezumi to start the gardening while the Shannon and Moss got their relationship in order. Finnian's waking wish was to paint so I sent him out to work on his painting.
    43142110364_8b52e443fe_o.jpg
    Shannon and Moss chatted and shared a few jokes but Shannon still didn't learn any of Moss's traits. I gave up trying and had Moss hug his dad before asking him for a game of catch. The hug did it! Shannon learned Moss's traits and I was happy when they went out to play :)
    43142109884_c2f66116b3_o.jpg
    Finnian finished his painting. He is now level 7 in painting :)
    29989998358_f77489917b_o.jpg
    Shannon finished off the gardening.
    43142109124_acfbde9550_o.jpg
    Moss autonomously recycled the old paper :)
    43859363621_34c0c5d733_o.jpg
    Then went to the treehouse for a Great Feast :)
    43142108124_9d9d2407a7_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to woohoo Shannon. I locked it in knowing that they would take care of it themselves :)
    42955765715_e7867df98c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi made another batch of nectar :)
    42955764505_ba67fbcf3d_o.jpg
    I paused when Mikezumi was mid-air but my game lagged for a moment because of an SP notification and she suddenly dropped into the barrel before I could get a shot.
    43142106494_0810d022e4_o.jpg
    There were about a dozen barren plants that needed replacing. I had Shannon plant more on one of the few flat areas on the lot and then moved them to the garden using MOO.
    42955763405_2d4d35f9b7_o.jpg
    I saw Mikezumi heading towards Shannon when she finished with the nectar but she pulled out a book and kept going.
    43859360391_b1fc4cb575_o.jpg
    Moss fished after his treehouse feast. Because he loves the outdoors he fishes autonomously.
    42955761535_bcb580686d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi picked a pretty spot to read :)

    Day 14 (cont.)

    I sent the family to the beach :)
    43859358691_5ab4ee7c7b_o.jpg
    Dyno Marks was there and I was surprised he was so slim as he was chubby the last time I saw him.
    43859358001_8b24baa485_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon went to swim at the same time! I find it odd how they change into their swimwear after they have entered the water :|
    43859357251_cdb48c84c1_o.jpg
    43859356751_89cb85c270_o.jpg
    Finnian was about to swim when Edward Harbucks stopped him for a chat.
    43859356281_4cdcdcfe87_o.jpg
    The boys chatted while standing on the water's surface :D
    42955756615_7c931930f8_o.jpg
    Moss joined his parents for a quick swim :)
    43859355521_242f6408d0_o.jpg
    Shannon rolled a wish to chat with Moss. When Moss got out, I had Shannon join him. Their relationship is much better now :)
    43859355281_0a675ce72d_o.jpg
    Oops! Forgot to tune out autonomous tag!
    43859354811_36d73ae228_o.jpg
    43859354471_59e3778fc7_o.jpg
    I laughed so hard when I saw Mikezumi heading to Michael Dandy to ask him about his career! It must have been the silly outfit! :D
    43859354261_8f7c493826_o.jpg
    The family attended a party thrown by Irene Meyer :)
    43859353511_f32c280aa1_o.jpg
    Irene came out and chatted with Finnian :)

    Day 14 (cont.)

    I sent the family upstairs and had Mikezumi prepare a cheese plate.
    43859352471_d2dcc597bb_o.jpg
    Shannon kept the boys company while Mikezumi prepared the meal :)
    43859352061_38287b6124_o.jpg
    43859351341_87011df3a1_o.jpg
    I was wondering why Irene wasn't coming upstairs to socialize and found her chatting with Elliot Nest and MD Fields.
    43859350521_53af37ae12_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon went downstairs to meet the other guests. I sent the boys home as there wasn't much for them to do there.

    43859348731_cfce870b00_o.jpg

    I found Irene eating with Clyde Reeves.

    I sent Mikezumi and Shannon home after they had made new friends and found the boys happily amusing themselves :)

    I thought I should take a family photo before Finnian becomes a teen, although that is still a few days off.

    Day 15

    Don't get between Shannon and his pancakes, Moss! :D

    43878034581_39a280a02a_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to ride a spring rider. The family didn't have one but they do now ;)
    43878034601_611c7d2626_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to play catch with Moss. Knowing Moss's traits has totally changed their relationship. Having a high relationship obviously doesn't mean anything if sims don't "know" each other!
    43878034631_c6d271d3bb_o.jpg
    I had Mikezumi prepare pancakes to replace what they had eaten. Can't be running out of hubby's favourite meal! ;)
    43878034671_a7d8d84821_o.jpg
    Moss's waking wish was to find a bug but I had to wait for an active spawner. He also rolled a wish to talk with Mikezumi at breakfast which he got and then he rolled a wish to ride the spring rider when I bought it.
    43829962052_4fee1fa2e9_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi got started on the gardening.
    43829962102_4d94e2cc29_o.jpg
    43829962242_7f2ec1d6a9_o.jpg
    I finally found an active spawner! I had reset the town in the middle of the night and bugs are usually very scarce after a reset.
    43829962302_00680d2235_o.jpg
    I saw from Shannon's thumbnail that he was about to water the plants manually so I quickly cancelled it and zoomed to him. I saw a lot of barren plants. The save has been going for two sim weeks and it won't be long before there are no original plants left.
    42973735065_f5a28aa5c3_o.jpg
    Finnian finished another painting :) At this rate, it won't be long before he gets his wish to reach level 8 :)
    42973735085_710915fd4c_o.jpg
    Moss fished when got home from his bug hunt.
    42973735105_ea8c1cd034_o.jpg
    I sent Finnian fishing until Mikezumi and Shannon finished gardening.
    42973735125_817d109dc4_o.jpg
    Moss came over to joke with Mikezumi so I had Finnian join him. The kids' social bars needed filling and I didn't want Mikezumi and Shannon starting something that would take time because I wanted to send the family to the park.

    Day 15 (cont.)

    I'd quit my game after the pics in the last update because I wanted to tell igazor that his advice for a problem I was having worked. The first thing Shannon did when I reloaded was to pinch Finnian's cheek! :D

    43164779684_54013f2737_o.jpg
    I hunted high and low and couldn't find a park in Roaring Heights. I placed my favourite small park while the family slept :)
    43164779694_e8612d660c_o.jpg
    43164779714_f575c96cfd_o.jpg
    The kids amused themselves while Mikezumi and Shannon amused each other ;)
    43164779764_572be74711_o.jpg
    I saw the treehouse in Moss's queue and quickly cancelled it when I saw Mikezumi and Shannon heading for it! :D
    43882349601_d7a2b30409_o.jpg
    "I can't believe they still do it!"
    43882349691_fcac93733e_o.jpg
    Moss went to Mikezumi for a game of catch.
    43882349771_47a80cd187_o.jpg
    43882349841_4b9860230c_o.jpg
    I felt sorry for Finnian so had him ask Shannon for a game as well :)
    43882409881_753100aeaa_o.jpg
    After a long game of catch I had them chat to refill their social bars.
    43882465971_62ebd0a07d_o.jpg
    43882465991_6067b9bf3c_o.jpg
    Mikezumi pulled out a book when the kids went off to play.
    43882466001_bea357c1fb_o.jpg
    I didn't know Shannon had a book in his inventory and was surprised when he sat down with Mikezumi to read. He must have picked it himself because is was a Sports book.

    The boys painted until it was time for bed :)

    Sweet story <3 I love the setting, and you prove that being a young adult isn't everything. All life stages have immense value in their own way and nothing is over just because you have a few grey hairs. I'm not really a big fan of custom content, but it is easy for me to look past it when the story is so captivating :)

    Thanks @Nindigo :) Although most of the sims I play are YA, I have always enjoyed the elder stage. Besides, Mikezumi is my SS so has to be an elder so she reflects who I am ;)
    I know that CC is not for everyone but, for me, it is essential. I played without CC for a long time before I got the courage to try it and now I can't look back.

    Day 17

    The family enjoyed pancakes for breakfast :)
    29005362377_3c159500da_o.jpg
    Because the WA grapes were ready for harvest, Mikezumi rolled wishes to prepare nectar with them. Each grape wish was worth 400 LTH and she had wishes for 4 of them. She would have rolled more but she only had two spare slots and also had a waking wish to prepare a meal. I think they can only hold 3 unlocked-in wishes before more can be rolled. I had her make an amazing recipe which used 3 of the grapes first.
    30074240198_518fbfd669_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to finish a book so I gave him a comic and Moss's waking wish was to have a sleepover which I cancelled. Fortunately he rolled a wish to chat with Shannon over breakfast. After they chatted, Shannon rolled a wish to play a game with him :)

    Finnian's latest painting.
    43037943765_76e636f7fd_o.jpg
    When Finnian finished the comic he rode the spring rider :)
    43037942605_09eb948086_o.jpg
    Moss wasn't having a good time ;)
    43037941805_d769b72d23_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shanon got started on the gardening after the kids left for school.
    30074235718_50516b520b_o.jpg
    43037940415_fe0b9df1d9_o.jpg
    Mikezumi got her waking wish while Shannon finished the gardening.
    30074234078_cb2623baf9_o.jpg
    The boys had a field trip to the Bistro. Contessa Capp was chaperone. Celeste Davis is sitting beside her.
    43037939565_4e1c2ec18e_o.jpg
    Gilbert Astare also attended.

    43037938765_d1fcfa69da_o.jpg
    Shannon went to Mikezumi when he was done with the gardening. I like to think he was thanking her for the pancakes ;)
    43037938215_308ed87edf_o.jpg
    Shannon's first heat of the moment kiss for the day. There were many! :D
    30074231838_845e64446f_o.jpg
    30074231568_f64b26c479_o.jpg
    When they were done woohooing, I had Mikezumi prepare nectar using the last grape she had wished to use. They had to get another nectar rack!

    Day 17 (cont.)

    When Mikezumi was done with the nectar, she sought Shannon out for some flirting :)
    30074230998_6f4c11b101_o.jpg
    I checked to make sure both of the boys had got on the bus after the field trip.
    43037936055_a79f1ba848_o.jpg
    30074229118_ca806af172_o.jpg
    The boys did their homework together :)
    30074228468_da1c37bb32_o.jpg
    Shannon and his heat of the moment kisses! Luckily Mikezumi never knocks them back :)
    30074227998_1777faf3a6_o.jpg
    I had to close my game to make dinner and when I reloaded I thought it was funny that Mikezumi was thinking of trash while Shannon seemed to like his surroundings :D
    29005353717_1c70c4cb61_o.jpg
    Because I had interrupted their flirting by exiting and reloading they went their separate ways. Mikezumi made herself a cup of tea and Shannon went to his tractor.
    30074227008_879cd5b5b5_o.jpg
    Moss came home with a wish to play chess.
    29005351897_d4d98fb30c_o.jpg
    Finnian came home with a wish to hang out with Shannon but that had to wait so he painted until Shannon was free. He got his wish to reach level 8 :)
    43943209571_a9819af10d_o.jpg
    Mikezumi was enjoying her tea :)
    29005350837_60654764a6_o.jpg
    When Shannon finished fertilizing I had him chat with Finnian :)
    43037930385_be13bc7b08_o.jpg
    Shannon then rolled a wish to play catch with Finnian :)
    43943208451_3dd6c45ce0_o.jpg
    Moss went to the spring rider when I released him from chess.
    30074223598_b7f319ff5b_o.jpg
    The family enjoyed Dim Sum for dinner :)
    29005348797_77ce8995d6_o.jpg
    Moss fished after dinner. He caught his first Siamese catfish.
    30074222248_8db817439a_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi watched the stars :)
    30074221808_777fd772bb_o.jpg
    Shannon tried to go the tractor but Mikezumi wasn't done with him :)

    Bookmarked to follow, so far looks so exciting it's wonderful to see your SS @Mikezumi I still have to look through your other threads but seen this one and couldn't resist to follow it.

    Beautiful scenarios and events look forward to seeing how this gp comes along :) <3

    Day 18

    The family enjoyed Eggs Machiavellian on Finnian's last day as a child :)
    43959317311_cbdd20a4cf_o.jpg
    Mikezumi has a wish to make 35 bottles of nectar locked in from the day before so I got her started after breakfast.
    43240696044_ebfaf4d0c3_o.jpg
    Finnian's waking wish was to hug someone and Moss's was to play catch with someone. The boys played catch after a hug :) Shannon's waking wish was to kiss Mikezumi and he got that when they first woke so I got him started on the gardening.
    43959316431_1312b3606e_o.jpg
    43959314951_c375289167_o.jpg
    While Mikezumi waited for her nectar, she helped Shannon with the gardening.
    43959314361_99162c14cb_o.jpg
    About a dozen trees became barren after harvesting so I had Mikezumi and Shannon plant more.
    42150762510_0b4de49dec_o.jpg
    They had a ltitle flirt after planting the trees :)

    43959311781_b6a8c6e610_o.jpg
    Shannon and Mikezumi broke the shower :D
    43959311271_42a9bda946_o.jpg
    Shannon rolled a wish to fix it so he got the job :)

    43959307031_a4d7c3efe9_o.jpg
    While the family were eating cake, I went into buy mode and bought Shannon a car so Finnian could learn how to drive. Finding a large enough patch of ground to place the car parking space was tough but I found one then sold it after I put it in Shannon's inventory.
    30090781328_4656ab5514_o.jpg

    Day 19

    The family enjoyed crepes for breakfast :)
    43256536114_d3e970b47b_o.jpg
    Finnian didn't have a waking wish so I had him unhide the cooking skill points he got from the field trip to the Bistro by preparing an Autumn salad. It triggered a wish to learn a recipe so I gave him the recipe for cheese plate. I always give this recipe to my teens when they learn the cooking skill because I figure it's not cheating because you can't possibly need a recipe to throw some cheese and crackers on a plate! :D
    30106614178_f6eeaf0908_o.jpg
    Moss's waking wish was to find a rock. I remembered that a gem had spawned in the garden recently so had him collect it.
    43256535674_e86f330759_o.jpg
    Shannon's waking wish was to harvest a wild plant so I sent him to the community garden which is nearby.
    30106613318_8261d3e35b_o.jpg
    Mikezumi's waking wish was to catch a great fish.
    43256535284_fd369356ae_o.jpg
    The family has plenty of produce so Shannon only harvested one plant.
    30106612388_f4fec87546_o.jpg
    Finnian and Moss worked on their paintings until the bus came.

    Mikezumi finished before Shannon and was trying to read but she had barely opened her book when Shannon finished and came over for a flirt :)
    42166307900_21571c545c_o.jpg
    When Finnian aged up to teen I bought the fixer-up car because I thought it would be a fun activity for a teen. I had Mikezumi and Shannon test it out ;)

    Day 19 (cont.)

    Mikezumi had a wish to prepare nectar worth §100. It was worth 1,500 LTH. I have lots of valuable recipes but they use lots of life fruit. I went through my hundreds of recipes and found one that only used 1 life fruit so she could get her wish. I actually prefer making the cheaper recipes that don't add days to my sims' lives.
    42166305750_8b9fc8ffd0_o.jpg
    She fell over as soon as she started squishing the fruit!
    30106606638_e0ffa3b77c_o.jpg
    Finnian did his homework when he got home. I got a popup that Prom was coming up but I wanted him to learn how to drive before I organized a date for him.
    42166305020_df8ed407fb_o.jpg
    Finnian came home with a wish to paint. I let him paint long enough to get his wish because Shannon was fertilizing the garden but, when he was done, I had Shannon go to him.
    30106606118_bc834b9148_o.jpg
    I found Mikezumi working on the fixer-up car!
    42166304310_d47e48128b_o.jpg
    Because the lot doesn't have a parking space, I had to put the car in Finnian's inventory before he could ask Shannon for a driving lesson. Sims sit so low in this car that you can't see them when looking at the car front-on :#
    30106605498_3eeb9f8d7e_o.jpg
    I found Mikezumi sending a friendly text to Glummo Marks :D
    30106604898_4448954029_o.jpg
    The driving lesson went well and Finnian got his licence in one shot :)
    42166302800_6ef631cda3_o.jpg
    I invited Daniel Taylor over when Finnian got home :)
    30106604158_2d6e7222ec_o.jpg
    Moss got home late because of Scouts.
    42166301980_d1ed767867_o.jpg
    I don't know how well you can see it, but Shannon and Mikezumi were making out in the garden while Finnian was asking Daniel to be his Prom date :D
    43975267291_11056f07d5_o.jpg
    Of course they got hearts :)
    29037218677_7b4e0cdb9d_o.jpg
    Daniel got a text from Evelyn Morgan. He mustn't have liked what he read :D

    Daniel stayed for dinner :)

    Mikezumi and Shannon were late to the table because they were flirting in the garden :)
    43975266341_79a8e564e9_o.jpg
    Moss came home with a wish to catch a bug. The spawner near the bus stop was active and he caught a pretty purple butterfly :)
    43256526734_bc95a60178_o.jpg
    Finnian finished his painting while Mikezumi was introducing herself to Daniel.
    29037216777_848c621abf_o.jpg
    Mikezumi and Shannon attended a party thrown by Nancy Picard.
    43256525824_f06ced6837_o.jpg
    When I checked on the boys they were watching the stars :)
    29037216147_b3fec0ebe7_o.jpg
    43256525044_69ac149386_o.jpg
    I sent Moss fishing to keep him out of the way then realized he had rolled a wish to attend a party.
    29037215527_146f9992d4_o.jpg
    Shannon was still chatting with Nancy when I checked on the party.
    43256524514_fe4acd5360_o.jpg
    I teleported Moss to the party so he wouldn't miss out.
