The family began the morning with skilling and taxes. Although the Pedersons aren’t wealthy, they’ve got college funds for all the kids and a nice cushion.

snapshot_9b264049_62c42006

Meadow and Makari inherited money from both Julien and Armando. I don’t know how much, but it wasn’t a significant amount.

Angie finished getting her skill points for college scholarships! She’s got about 3 days before she leaves.

snapshot_9b264049_e2c422ea

After everyone got their mandatory skill points, a spontaneous smustle party broke out.

Family Sunday! The Cooke-Pavlov family came over.

snapshot_9b264049_22c5346c

Everybody hung out in the living room and got to know each other.

Varya and Eva enjoyed a nice game of chess.

snapshot_9b264049_42c536a9

Angie went on an outing with Denise, although it was a little rough because Denise wouldn’t accept compliments or hugs.

snapshot_9b264049_42c5373e

Eddie’s adult life bar was almost full. He’s Liouba’s dog, and it would be nice if he wasn’t too old when Liouba comes back from college to pick him up, so Makari gave him some Kibble of Life.

Meadow’s on a fitness kick, so after some time on the exercise bike she drank a yucky green smoothie. Artur, feasting on leftover chili, thought she was crazy.

snapshot_9b264049_a2c53bdd

It worked, though! Or at least, she lost her jelly belly. She’s still got a little ways to go before she’s fit.

snapshot_9b264049_22c53dad

After the normals went to bed, Angie stayed up working on her magic skill and her beautiful wickedness.

snapshot_9b264049_e2c53e08

Makari repaired a sparking robot toy.

snapshot_9b264049_22c53e55

Artur brushed his teeth, wanting to be nicely spiffed up for his upcoming night.

snapshot_9b264049_62c53e9e

Artur was sneaking out to the limo for his date with Greta just as Denise showed up to drop off an outing gift for Angie.

snapshot_9b264049_42c53f97

“Oh, hey, son. What’s up?”

“Oh, nothing, Dad. Was just out pruning the bushes.”

“Oh, okay.”

snapshot_9b264049_e2c54072

Varya got up early to get a jump on skilling. She only needs another half dozen body points to have all her skills for scholarships.

snapshot_9b264049_c2db55b5

Sparkly cereal is extra delicious after exercising.

snapshot_9b264049_42db5631

Lana finished her skilling early, and had time to play with her big sister before school.

snapshot_9b264049_02db5703

Meadow arrived home early, with a $25,000 chance card bonus.

snapshot_9b264049_82db57fb

She then went out and got her gold gardening badge!

snapshot_9b264049_82db582asnapshot_9b264049_02db5893

All the teens brought friends home from school. And only one cousin!

snapshot_9b264049_62db5acf

The triplets all earned their A plus grades!

snapshot_9b264049_02db5b23

Rada was the only one with homework, and the only one who didn’t get a school bus friend. 😦

snapshot_9b264049_c2db5b7c

She did get to join in the big water balloon fight with her sisters, Tayla Bendett, and Tommy Ottomas.

snapshot_9b264049_e2db5cea

Makari took the 3 teens to the White Cauldron to open the shop for the evening.

snapshot_9b264049_62db5d63

They got the business up to level 8.

snapshot_9b264049_22db62b3

Back home, Artur invited Greta Fairchild for an evening of fun. She brought Catriona Bruce along as her friend.

snapshot_9b264049_82db62d9

“Hi, Catty. Hey, Greta, you’re looking hot,” Artur said, not even noticing the odd way Catriona was walking.

“You’re super hot, Artur!” Greta said.

snapshot_9b264049_a2db634f

Artur and Greta had a great date and got some gigantic red hearts.

snapshot_9b264049_02db6361

Catriona hung out with Lana, doing the Slap Dance, grateful for her super duper tummy binder. She needed to have a conversation with Artur, but not right now.

snapshot_9b264049_a2db64af

Angie got into a fight with Mieszko Kozlow. I have no idea why, or what he was even doing there.

snapshot_9b264049_62db653a

I also missed seeing who won.

snapshot_9b264049_c2db6582

Meanwhile, Varya had her boyfriend Devan Bendett over. As you can see, she’s definitely the romantic type.

snapshot_9b264049_82db65dc

Artur and Greta took their relationship to the next level.

snapshot_9b264049_a2db679d

In the wee hours, Ginger brought over an outing gift for Angie.

snapshot_9b264049_e2db6803

Since Angie’s college fund was in good shape, and she knew Ginger was just starting out, she sent half the money to her new friend.

snapshot_9b264049_42db68a4

Oh, no, Mieszko stole the newspaper! Oh, no, the family is just going to be devastated! What terrible revenge!

snapshot_9b264049_e2e6f558

As soon as it was light outside, it was time for Morning Phone Time.

snapshot_9b264049_02e6f5f4

Meadow’s riding in the limo now! I think she’s level 8 or 9 in the Business career.

snapshot_9b264049_02e6f639

Makari had the house to himself, and spent the day making things to sell at The White Cauldron.

snapshot_9b264049_02e6f859

Mieszko came by to steal the newspaper again. The gardener gave him a good scolding.

snapshot_9b264049_42e6f8e0

Why does Angie look so happy? Because that’s not homework, it’s her high school diploma!

snapshot_9b264049_62e6f8f5

Her brother and sister weren’t so lucky. They both got actual homework.

snapshot_9b264049_42e6fb37

snapshot_9b264049_a2e6fbba

Makari and the teens headed down to The White Cauldron, and got it up to rank 9.

snapshot_9b264049_82ea4b67

Back home, Blondie gave birth!

snapshot_9b264049_82ea4b7d

She had just one puppy, a female named Lady.

snapshot_9b264049_a2ea4c1a

Tommy Ottomas was the only friend brought home on the bus. Rada lucked out this time.

snapshot_9b264049_22ea4ca8snapshot_9b264049_e2ea4cb6

Artur and Varya wasted no time inviting their significant others over.

snapshot_9b264049_a2ea4d28

Meadow didn’t get a promotion as she needs skill points, but she still earned over $2000 and got picked up and dropped off in a limo.

snapshot_9b264049_62ea4d5c

Artur and Greta are now going steady! Despite his red heart, Artur is the one who had the want.

snapshot_9b264049_a2ea4ec1

Lana was excited to spend a little time with her mom.

snapshot_9b264049_82ea4fa8

“You’re the bestest puppy ever, Lady!”

snapshot_9b264049_42ea4fe3

“Ow! Angie! I’m trying to have a date here!”

“There’s always time for noogies from your older and therefore better sister!”

snapshot_9b264049_22ea5052

Once 6 o’clock hit, it was time for Anzhelina to head off to college. She earned $6250 in scholarships (grades and 7 skills), and had a surprisingly large trust fund of $25,400. This qualifies her for the lottery for the luxury dorm!

snapshot_9b264049_82ea510b

Once Angie was out the door, it was time for homework and Leftover Night.

snapshot_9b264049_22ea512d

Aw, cute little puppy by himself in the big giant dog house.

snapshot_9b264049_a2ea51e4

Rada decided to try out the toy someone had bought at the toy shop last season. She definitely enjoyed herself.

snapshot_9b264049_22ea5271

Artur and Greta hung out being lovey-dovey while Zhenya slap danced by herself.

snapshot_9b264049_62ea540a

Devan came by and left a nice gift for Varya.

snapshot_9b264049_e2ea541c

Artur and Varya stayed up late, working on their skills, and both managed to finish all their skilling for scholarships!

snapshot_9b264049_8301bd23

The kids spent the morning skilling, while Meadow made pancakes for breakfast.

snapshot_9b264049_4301bdd2

The triplets weren’t hungry, but the teens had a nice family breakfast with their parents before school and work.

snapshot_9b264049_2301be80

Meadow had the day off. She spent most of it in the garden, talking to the trees.

snapshot_9b264049_2301bfd7

Anthony Thayer and Pavel Hamilton came home on the school bus. Hadassah Gavigan just stopped by to hang out.

snapshot_9b264049_8301c088

Lana and Rada both got homework. Rada sat down to do it right away, but Lana wanted to play with her friend first.

snapshot_9b264049_c301c147

She brought home Tayla Bendett, and they were best friends by the end of the afternoon.

snapshot_9b264049_a301c171

Zinaida brought Lyosha Parker home on the bus.

snapshot_9b264049_0301c1bb

Meadow spent the afternoon alone, working on skill points for her next promotion.

snapshot_9b264049_6301c295

Liouba and Anzhelina came home from college for the evening.

snapshot_9b264049_c301c2e8

It’s birthday time for the triplets!

snapshot_9b264049_e301c300

Lana decided to continue the Romance trend. She’s a Romance/Knowledge sim with a LTW to top the Journalism career.

snapshot_9b264049_4301c394

Rada became a Popularity/Cheese sim with a LTW to have 5 top businesses.

snapshot_9b264049_c301c45f

Zhenya became a Family/Popularity sim and wants to have 3 kids graduate from college.

Rada and Zhenya both got full makeovers.

snapshot_9b264049_a301c86a

Rada and Zhenya also rolled the witch gene.

I would like to have household lines of good, neutral, and evil witches. Somebody’s got to take over the good witch line. Rada’s got 6 nice points to Zhenya’s none at all, so she’ll be a good witch and the Pederson heir. That’s nice since it also means she’ll have help for her LTW.

snapshot_9b264049_8301c8c7

Rada decided the white color suited her, although she definitely wanted a different outfit and hairstyle.

snapshot_9b264049_0301c953

Zhenya decided to go a little more strawberry blonde with her hair dye, and picked a colorful outfit to go with it.

snapshot_9b264049_63143bf9

Her outfit is great and I still like her hair, so Lana’s makeover consisted of just a little makeup.

snapshot_9b264049_231445c6

Rada and Zhenya got up very early in the morning and buckled down to their spell books.

snapshot_9b264049_c31445d7

The non-witch teens got to hang out on free will.

snapshot_9b264049_03144675

Then, as soon as it was daylight, it was phone time.

snapshot_9b264049_a3144716

Rada got herself a cell phone and joined in phone time, while Meadow was madly trying to get in all her skills for her next promotion before work.

snapshot_9b264049_23144993

Time for Reno Day! An attic with dormers was added onto the house.

snapshot_9b264049_431449ad

Inside, it was used for storage space for baby stuff and extra beds.

snapshot_9b264049_c31449ce

Makari had the day to himself. He started out by paying the school fees – a paltry $11,000.

snapshot_9b264049_23144a0a

Then he worked on the garden, since Meadow had been so focused on her skilling.

snapshot_9b264049_c3144a9a

Rada always gets homework, poor girl.

snapshot_9b264049_43144ce3

Makari took the triplets to The White Cauldron for their first store experience. Rada got the cushy sales job due to her LTW.

snapshot_9b264049_a314707a

Varya stayed home and hung out with Adam Carr, who had come home on the bus with her.

snapshot_9b264049_63147085

So. Meadow was awesome and got a promotion, and is now a Business Tycoon! And apparently I suck and didn’t get a picture. Alas.

Anyway, she had a nice conversation about soccer with Zhenya.

snapshot_9b264049_a31470eb

There was just enough time for one last birthday for this household.

snapshot_9b264049_63147103

Makari was a little shocked that he was an elder already.

snapshot_9b264049_23147392

He was very handsome after a makeover.

snapshot_9b264049_c31474cb

Rada exercised her Grilled Cheese secondary aspiration by making a platter for the family and guests, then didn’t eat any herself.

snapshot_9b264049_23147488

Varya headed off for college, still in her workout gear. She earned the standard $6250 in scholarships, and had $25,000 in her bank account.

snapshot_9b264049_8314759e

Meadow talked to her orange tree about her mixed sadness that her children were leaving and happiness that she was getting closer to her LTW.

snapshot_9b264049_03147631

Adam came by to leave a gift for Varya, not realizing she had already left.

That’s it for the Pederson family! Next we have our first Uni semester.
