The first photo of the last post involved Calvin and an unfortunate bladder accident. This first photo is better... it's his birthday!
Chris continues his plan of befriending as many inhabitants of Appaloosa Plains as he can. Perhaps if he dazzles them with his amazing charisma, they won't really notice his larger-than-normal family or conservative beliefs.
Here's Calvin as a teen.
Amanda actually does some parenting!
Caleb and Calvin are NOT impressed by Carl's wailing.
All the school-aged kids doing their schoolwork. Clara decides to be a one-girl member of the School of the Dining Room Floor.
They originally had an ice-cream machine and deep fryer, but everyone kept using the dang fryer when they were hungry, so I removed them. I bought them a pizza oven instead!
It's been a while since the bed has seen any action other than sleeping... *wink wink*
When everyone else was asleep, Callie and Carl were still in the playpen. Not only does the playpen help toddlers learn to talk, it also (I don't know how) manages to keep all their needs up.
Chloe making herself a birthday cake!
The eldest Parker child is becoming a young adult! Congratulations, Chloe!
Are those... *gasp*... SHORT SHORTS, Chloe? NIKE! *faints*
Much better. I gave her a little make up. The Parkers aren't against it, but Amanda just chooses not to wear any.
After praying and talking to her parents, Chloe decided to apply to university. She took the entrance test and did very well!
Before she headed off, there was one final event to attend... high school graduation!
Even the toddlers came!
Somehow, without a single lesson, Chloe is magically able to drive. Parents can teach their kids to drive in Sims 3 (with the Generations expansion pack), but I never got round to it. Well, there were nine Sims to keep an eye on...
Somehow, despite being homeschooled, Chloe still managed to graduate as class valedictorian, and Most Likely to Fulfill her Lifetime Wish. Her LTW, by the way, is the exact same one as her mother's: One Sim Band, or mastering the four musical skills of guitar, piano, bass and drums.
We end on an appropriate photo of Chloe leaving to go off to university to study Fine Arts. It's sweet that she's thinking of Callie; perhaps she's hoping that Callie will also leap at the chance of going to university when she's old enough?
