Edens Year 7: a Half-Dozen Little Edens!

neurogirl

856 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! We ended Year 6 with a number of burning questions and I have answers for you on all fronts!

Firstly, Exodus is actually a pretty great little dude without the smugness I feared. He is diligent in his homeschooling, shares a particularly precious bond with Leviticus, and is upstanding in his walk with the Lord (whew! Had to throw Jesus in there). He is also learning how to workout from his father, who couldn't bear to witness the End Times in Spandex at the gym, so is performing calisthenics Safe At Home and getting in pretty good shape. (Genesis is doing all of the above AND a lot of cleaning, but that's her role as Godly young elementary-school girl so why mention it)

Secondly, Adam realized that in order to be the Spiritual Leader of the home that he was ordained to be, he needed to spend more time with his kids. He was much more involved in Year 7, and was actually even there for the (outdoor) birth of his 6th child! (June 2016, 13 months after #5)

Welcome to the world baby boy Joshua! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you! (And hope you don't mind having the only normal name of your siblings so far!)

Speaking of siblings with weird names, Deuteronomy aged up to a toddler! Happy birthday sweetie! Very relieved that you got "charming" for your toddler personality! (Her color will be pinkish)

A "good" toddler personality is no guarantee of peace though, because even good toddlers can't control their emotions all the time. Independent and obedient Numbers, the easiest kid so far, was so distressed by the addition of her newest brother that she smashed the treehouse in a fit of rage! Elsie was so embarassed that CALE, who was spending time with the family, had to witness her niece's sinful nature. (In the picture below, notice Eva coming to yell at Numbers - though not blanket-train her - and Elsie in SWEATPANTS!) Though Elsie was NIKE in her workout attire, Cale didn't seem to mind and they enjoyed time in athletic pursuits together. Elsie had of course learned her lesson, and let Cale win.

Soon after Joshua's arrival, Eva and Adam hey-hey-heyed to their hearts' content with Elsie potty-training Deuteronomy the next wall over.

So it should be no surprise to anyone anymore that Precious Blessing #7 is on its way!!! How neat!

For those of you concerned about space issues, fear not! My maximum household size is 25, and the Edens bought bunkbeds!! (custom content downloaded)  Below, see the toddler bunkbeds for Numbers/Deuteronomy and all the precious babes asleep. See? There is still lots of room to stack those arrows for Jesus like cordwood.

The last question to be answered in Year 7 again concerns our pet-fundie Elsie. After chatting on the phone in front of their families and going to the park again with Genesis and Exodus, Cale asked Elsie to Chez Llama for a Very Special Date. (picture taken by a chaperone who was obviously there)

5a9ba7c847b2c_03-03-18_9-49-32PM.thumb.png.3f9646587ed0e07cb8483e3a370babc6.png

Though he couldn't work up the courage during dinner, in the romantic night air Cale finally asked Elsie if she would enter into a Courtship Relationship with him! What?! Elsie and Cale had only been getting-to-know-each-other/special friends for 1.5 years now. She completely didn't see it coming!

But OF COURSE she said TOTALLY! while they sweetly held hands for the very first time. They may not be on the level of a no-touch engagement, but what a Godly example these two are.

The Edens had a better 2016 than most, but can the happiness last? Hoping for new blessings, sweet family moments, and a successful Courtship Relationship in 2017/Year 7, Edens out!

I'm not blogging my lot, but here is their family tree (I had to restart due to save game corruption and they had more boys this time! God is smiling on them). Mum is pregnant with number 7, lucky duckling. My boyfriend named Moses in return for making me a cup of tea last night, but I already feel really bad for him having that name when the rest are almost normal :pb_lol:

Anyway. They're all homeschooled, Dad is now a getaway driver in the criminal career, Mum stays at home, the kids raise themselves while she desperately cleans, they have 0 sister moms and in spare time Mum writes books and Dad carves furniture and sells it on for a delicious profit. There's small snarky bios for each one if you click on them, that I might add to later. I almost think Eva has managed the better family though, they're certainly more harmonious, mine like biting each other.

Oh and you can zoom in on the family tree if you want to see faces clearer :confusion-shrug:

OMG @victoriasponge. Your bios are HILARIOUS. Free Leah! 

My family is only ok when I use cheats lol. What I didn't report in year 7 is that when Elsie came home after her very special date the household was in utter chaos. Clearly Eva only gives a flying fig about her kids when God (me) is watching! Bars red, some kids DID want to bite. I admire your toughness/authenticity but I don't have fun when it's like that. So Eva's motives are permanently maxed, and I frequently turn free-will off as well. So my "realistic" way of playing isn't very real anymore but if I don't use cheats I'll never finish the family!  :tw_flushed:

Great bios @victoriasponge, I agree! Seems even God has forgotten the kids' names - Leah is called Ruth in hers, but it doesn't matter as she is only a helpmeet-to-be and doesn't need to be an individual :D

I did fix that when I went in and added the more recently born children @WineGlass but I'm tempted to keep it in, make sure she knows her place. (They also adopted a baby as punishment for an earlier two year gap, God can't be having such large spacing!) I'll report back when Leah finally finds her man.

@neurogirl, i have had problems with sims not able to use their bunkbeds (they were child ones, not toddler though). Hope your family doesn't because they are going to need them!

@WineGlass New blog will be up tonight but the bunkbeds do work! There was an update with the download I saw? I can link what I'm using in tonight's blog  And yes I intend to pack those kids in like sardines because there isn't enough simoleans to move!

      I don't think they are seriously going to adopt any time soon and am also slightly expecting a pregnancy announcement as part of the new season.

      I do continue to marvel at adoption in the US, someone mentioned 35000$! Goodness. Adoption rarely happens here. There were 72 domestic adoptions in 2018 (the latest year with figures). 72. In the whole country. That includes step parent adoptions (the partner of the parent who has been living with the child and parent for more than two years; 35), long term foster to adoption (25), foreign-to-domestic adoption (3) and extended family adoption (2), as well as infant adoption of which there were only 7. Plus 42 intercountry adoptions from the 10 approved countries, three of which haven't had any adoptions since at least 2012. Interestingly more than half of the intercountry adoptions are from a single country and the second largest group, about a third, are from the US.

      "Just adopt" is the biggest lie going.

      Does anybody remember Wes and Rachel's old blog? I forgot the URL and wanted to check wether it was still there. She had a lot of house pictures there IIRC.

      The blog name was Weslea (I think Rachel's middle name is Lea like her dear mother's, too) but I did a super quick search and couldn't find it anymore. Maybe it's still out there somewhere.

      In these times, I don't get why Joy is hanging out with Carlin (and whoever that family was they hung out with a few days ago per instagram). Pregnancy weakens the body's immune system, meaning a potentially harder time if she get covid, plus coronavirus increases the risks of preterm birth. 

      Joy doesn't exactly have a stellar track record when it comes to pregnancy and birth (not saying the second one was her fault), so if I was her, I would take all the precautions. 

      So dumb. 

      Oh wow. Here pregnant women are still considered low risk and I haven’t heard anything of the preterm labour issue? Do you have any sources you could share? I would be very interested. It is always interesting what hits the news in different countries in terms of risk assessment, as some report things others don’t.
      The only positive thing I see, is that Joy doesn’t seem to be too worried. My experience with miscarries is, that pregnancies loose the pure joy moment because the worry about a miscarriage is always there. Every little sign can make go nuts and throw you back into fears. If she can enjoy her pregnancy with less of this, I am very happy for her. Still, I wouldn’t do it but I think people are free to make their own decisions within the legal guidelines. I think having a more high intense physical (and therefore dangerous) hobby is very irresponsible to your partner and children but obviously I cannot call these people dumb (even if I think so).

      Remind me again: what do we know about Mr. Addie? I only remember that he is considerably younger than her (I always thought she would end up with an older man) and way too into guns.

      That is so interesting. I wouldn’t have batted an eye at the photo, because he clearly is wearing a mask. Our playgrounds are open for weeks now and as nurseries, schools and kindergartens are going slowly back to normal operations is clear, that masks are not possible at all the time and for the really young ones just impossible. We can meet up in groups up to ten people again and for now, things look great. I think allowing flights for holidays again is a mistake but maybe I am proven wrong. 

      With the different rules we all have, we should really research what we are seeing before judging. That said, I can totally see them doing whatever they want- because Jesus is clearly protecting them and the whole thing is a hoax anyway or whatever.
