Milestones: Fall 605
November 10, 605
Mary Gavigan has waited a long time, a decade, for a second child, but at her 10 week prenatal appointment on November 10, she found out they are not just expecting one baby, but two. Dr. Ono said that the twins are due around the end of June, 606.
Simone Endeavor wasn’t supposed to be able to get pregnant again after Sienna; doctors had said she had extremely low fertility. But Dr. Ono confirms that she and George have a surprise bundle of joy on the way, conceived at the end of October, right around Simone’s birthday and Spooky Day.
George wants to know if there’s anything special they need to do to take care of Simone and the baby, and Dr. Ono says as far as she can tell, everything looks great.
Their baby is due at the end of July 606, and the whole family is excited, although it’s hard to tell how much attention five-year-old Sienna is paying to the baby news, right now.
The whole Bright family celebrates their birthdays in the fall: Madeleine Bright turned 10 (September 1), and her dad, Sheldon Bright, turned 42 the next day, September 2nd. The family took a birthday trip to Granite Falls over the Labor Day weekend to celebrate. Lillith Bright also had her 42nd birthday, a month later, on October 5th.
Elise Petite turned 31 on September 6th, just before the start of the new school year. Elise teaches art and kindergarten, and treated herself to some time to herself to paint landscapes in her back yard, the week of her birthday.
Austin Holt turned 14 on October 2nd. His older sister, Maddison, talked him into skipping school for his birthday and they hid out in the loft of the barn and danced and chatted and played on their phones.
But their dad found them… and Austin got the dreaded lecture
Zane Roberts was 29 on October 3rd. Fall was a low time for him, and he felt really disgruntled about work and his relationship with Sandy.
Olivia Dunham turned 27 on October 6th but she didn’t let anyone know it was her birthday. Here she is going on her regular daily jog, staying in shape for her job as an FBI agent.
Simone Endeavor turned 27 on October 8th and spent her birthday baking cookies for Fall Festival and dancing in between batches.
Laney McElveen, Simone’s sister-in-law, turned 41 on November 3rd, and all she wished for is just a little bit of common sense on the part of the rest of the school board. They’ve asked for her resignation as chairperson over her treatment of the Smith family, not upholding their rights under McKinney Vento or FERPA. She feels strongly that she is just doing what’s best for the community and for the safety of the Smith family, who is currently living in a tent on the outskirts of town.
Hattie Granger & Gordon Nott are an official couple now, after dating through the summer, but are ostensibly, not living together. They are both normally very studious, but their attention to school is a little lacking right now.
Divorces & Separations
On November 8th, Sandy Bruty kicked Zane Roberts out of the house and sought legal counsel to limit their son’s contact with his father, due to Zane’s anger issues and verbal abuse of Sandy and Zach.
