Anxious to Begin

Fall 2001 - Fischer Family
Avery is 23, Gideon is 25
Narrated by Avery Monroe

I couldn't believe this day had come already. I hadn't ever been the kind of girl who fantasized about her wedding, or expected it to come so early in my life, but here I was.

Better Things To Do

Summer 2001 - Campbell Family
Micah is 41, Karinna is 40, Jules is 17, Wyatt is 16
Narrated by Micah Campbell

 It's taking me a while to adjust to being a grandfather. Karinna and I waited a very long time to have a second child, and taking care of my own newborn, Bennett, while at the same time taking care of Dalton, my grandson. The boys will be raised more like brothers than uncle and nephew.

The Word Committed

Summer 2001 - Summers Family
Flint is 22, Erica is 32, and Brynn is 21

Narrated by Flint Summers

 Man, this summer had been going great. My band started to take off, and we even got signed to a label. Hunter and I worked so hard for this, and it was thrilling to know I was going to get paid for doing something I already love to do. We still jam together for fun, and bring our A-game to recording sessions.

The Right Sim

Summer 2001 - White Family
Narrated by Avery Monroe
Avery is 22, Gideon is 24

Usually, when something completely changes your life, it disguises itself as something completely ordinary. Like a random phone call in the middle of the afternoon.

Good Morning

Summer 2001 - Hernandez
Olivia is 26, Ignazio is 30, Nina is 17, Martin is 9
Narrated by Olivia Hernandez

I had been worried that life after the wedding would be boring. Everyone said the romance would slow down, and mundane life would replace it. I've been pleased to see that, so far, that hasn't happened with Ignazio. If anything, he uses it as an excuse to be even more romantic. His favorite name for me is "Mrs. Hernandez".

Narrated by Rowena Costillo

 This summer has been creeping by, so slowly. My days are filled with diaper changes, feedings, and housecleaning.
