Edens Year 21 & 22: Moving Up and Moving Out!

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue!

We last left the Edens celebrating 3 new additions to the family - Psalm Eden (#16) through birth, Brie Johnson (2nd child of Elsie) through adoption, and Maya (...Rudolph?) through courtship to Exodus Eden. It was a busy year, and life hasn't slowed down yet!

Let's visit the Johnsons first. Elsie was still working in her catering role, which actually gave her time to spend with the children before work.

She and Romano even worked on a (gasp!) science project together!

Brie, adopted as a toddler, aged into a school aged girl who also went to Romano's private Christian school. She's even allowed to wear pants!

Lastly, the Johnson's cat Nacho fell ill and needed to go to the vet. Only minimal treatment was required, and Elsie also happened to meet a very cute dog-owner in overalls. Elsie needs more adult socialization in her life and she was very intrigued. To be continued!

Now on to the Edens. In 2030, Eva tried her hand at a screenplay, "How does she do it?" Sadly, she wouldn't have very much time to write as #17 was now on it's way!

2nd child and eldest son Exodus was also very busy...going on dates with his girlfriend "friend" courtship partner? All the dates were ANNOYINGLY chaperoned...

but that didn't stop Exodus and Maya from sneaking in some hand-to-hand contact after a rousing game of chess.

While he and brother Levi were still landscaping, Exodus, nearly an adult (20), realized he needed to think about his future, especially if he wanted a family someday. Educated at TSOTDRT, formal math wasn't his forte, but being a man of the house since age 11, Exodus has been very handy. He's considering a future in plumbing, electricity, or woodworking.

Of course, once Exodus started thinking seriously about his future, Genesis felt left out. She's the oldest after all! Though so much of her adolescence was spent with a baby on her hip, Genesis always found solace in her violin. She's been such a blessing to her parents and they absolutely can't have her leave that they gifted her a music shed in the backyard! It is truly an oasis of song!

(Numbers, #4, also began honing a new skill - gardening. This solitary "feminine" hobby is perfect for a introverted Eden needing some space from the Big House.)

Genesis was so motivated in her musicianship she even started taking formal training for violin performance and teaching (entered the Entertainer Career)! Here she is after her first day. It is so much more intense than any Dining Room Table prepared her for!

We've mentioned TSODRT a bunch this episode. How's that going?

By the way, the Edens OFFICIALLY now have way too many kids. Adam and Eva couldn't adequately care for their toddlers after the trauma of the fire and I had to cheat several times to make the toddlers happy so they wouldn't get taken away. Or so school aged kids wouldn't sleep in the bathtub. AND the game is getting laggy because there's so many people in the household. It's not going well. 

But as a mentioned in a previous entry, Eden #7 (Judges) is one of the Howlers and a huge PITA. He aged up into a teenager and still had too much mouth. After much praying and gnashing of teeth, Eva told Judges the news. He was going to ALERT. Indefinitely.

Nothing else to do!

(Before you worry too much, I didn't kill him off or delete him or anything. ALERT is an actual "paramilitary base" I made in game. You'll see Judges again.)

But back to the romance!

On one of the teen group outings, Levi brought a friend, Kyle Vera, who actually lives at ALERT! Genesis was very taken by this strong, Godly man who looked way too much like her brothers (ahem Bates girls).

Genesis saw him again when they had a reunion with Judges, and he showed off his muscles of fortitude.

It seems Kyle likes to show off his muscles of fortitude to multiple Eden daughters. Uh oh!

1846216957_04-20-20_11-08-46PM.thumb.png.f5ae8cd1a79b5a65a010dcc9c5ae53ff.png

Exodus, on the other hand, only has eyes for one Godly maiden.

At a Salvadorada Missions Trip Reunion he pulled her aside...

and..oh wait! At some point in all this #17, Proverb Eden was born! (close to two years after #16)

1632959415_04-20-20_8-06-37PM.thumb.png.44ea67310a16a89551b26dfecd58263c.png

Welcome to the world, Proverb! We can't wait to...yeah yeah yeah let's get back to the actual show.

Exodus pulled Maya into his arms...

And asked her to be his wife!

114353243_04-20-20_11-32-01PM.thumb.png.073bc8d5351a7c5a629c3f35954158ac.png

She said YES! And then Exodus was so excited that he kissed her!

1065405021_04-20-20_11-33-06PM.thumb.png.1e289401b6a095b499009e6dcf3600dc.png

Bet they'll have to pray about that a lot later. But we are so happy for them! 

And so year 22, 2031, ends with 20-year old Exodus engaged to his lady friend belle "courtship partner" of two years (hey could be worse!), Maya SoontobeEden! See! I didn't need to remember her last name after all :P 

Oh what's that you say? Maya might keep her last name? hahahahahahaha

Until next time, Edens out!

By the way, if anyone knows what the fundies call someone who's courting their child (not girlfriend, past "special friends") please let me know! It's totally escaping me.

I got a notification that you posted an update today and came here to discover that there had been 2 further updates in December. Yay! :) Thank you so much for getting back into this chaos. Your commentary is delightful and hilarious!

I don’t have any fundie families in Sims 4 currently. I’d need to download MCCC to get more than eight Sims in a household as a possibility. There also aren’t many modest skirts for girl children. I did have a really good CC skirt but game updates always disable CC and the skirt was uploaded to Mod the Sims in 2015 so I have no idea if it’d cause issues or not.

I haven’t played Sims 3 in a bit, so I’ll get back to playing the Parker family soon.

@mango_fandango Do it!! I loved reading yours. As long as the Eden daughters are wearing a dress or skirt, I can put leggings underneath. The teens are a bit harder as tights look weird under skirts but as long as they are knee length I count it. Going for "modern modest" a la the Bateseses.

      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.

      Also of interest perhaps -Robert and Kendalyn have been visiting the Staddon family home in WV for July 4th.

      There's a photoshoot by James Staddon on Lenspiration which features the 5 kids.

      I didn't realise it before but Kendalyn looks so much like her mother! Her make up and hairstyle has always made her look older than she is. Despite of her and Robert's crappy courtship story they always look genuinely happy together, and Robert seems to be a hands on father.
