This historical project is a heavy load. Thank goodness there are so many volunteers to help out. I've gotten several old photos, some from the TS1 days. Makes me wish I knew more about my family tree, but we left Kimikura when I was a toddler. I know that my grandparents are still alive and well in Kimikura-I miss them especially since I was able to reconnect with them during our honeymoon. I think I'll convince Tobi to take a night out on the town with me.

Our anniversary is coming up and I've been getting the notion that we need to expand our family. I don't know how to bring it up to Li, but I will soon. The spare bedroom is sitting there waiting for a crib and the pitter patter of tiny feet.

Well, there wasn't any snow yet, so no skiing, but on the resort was this strange striped tree and it reminded me of the legend I heard in college about a hidden treasure beneath the stripes of the mountain. I asked the resort for permission to dig and guess what? Yep, I broke a pipe! But not in vain, for I found not only several artifacts including ancient pottery from the 11th Age, but also a chest full of golden simoleans. We had everything appraised and made lots of simoleans-we only sold the chest of gold and a few trinkets, but we kept the vase for the living room.
Ok, here are photos!

The babies are finally here, poor Ginger had been walking around with the largest belly and cravings for cheesecake and chips and dip platters. Thankfully those days are behind her...for the moment.
I am a grandmother, Byrant and Annie, such lovely babies.
We had our first child, a daughter named Grace Elise. She is so precious, I can't help but stare at her all day. Mom and Dad are still visiting the other siblings but they'll be home soon.

First-Secondary Level III is no longer an option. Teens not pursuing higher education are free to do what they wish with the remaining four simdays until they become adults. This includes finding jobs, traveling or doing independent study at home.
Got the SimExplorers extracurricular approved. We have an Explorer Leader, Julio Wilsonoff; uniforms (children and teen sizes) are being made and will be delivered soon and we have a few children enrolled. Julio will host the first meeting at Celebration Park, according to his agenda, they will be discussing a camping trip to Schwinster (spelling?) Mountains and handing out uniforms. I'm supposed to check in periodically with the group, but he basically runs it.
Yearbook was also approved as an extracurricular. Only teens are allowed to work on it. They will take various photos throughout the simweek and complie the book. Students will have the opportunity to buy one every simweek. Antonio Herendez has agreed to help the students with thier photos.
Swim Team was approved. Jorge Dawson has agreed to coach it. Students compete in meets everyweekend and train throughout the week.
Finally Su Hoga Su was approved. The honor society is for teens only (A/B students) and they participate in community service. I am the leader of this club for now.

I've been reading comments and suggestions about the site's navigation and doing research on how to make the blogs easier to find and navigate. I believe I have a system, so it will be unveiled soon. Articles will be linked from the home page for quicker access and I will also be taking the articles from the old website and putting them in a blog type format-since the pop up ads have been annoying to visitors.
Continue to leave comments on how the site can be better or what's working!

We've been granted webspace! Yes! Now AVA holds a spot in simnation. I've been working on the page. This has required me to think about what information should be on the page and how to present it. This is different from PAG-since community parents and students will check the webpage for information.

Yes, my husband is hot. I admit it-I tell him so each day. Not only is he attractive, but fun. Only he would convince me to play in the leaves-in my underwear!
