Our Happy, Quiet Life: Gates 2, Round 8, Fall

Micah Gates and Ellissen Pitziati are 20

Narrated by Ellissen Pitziati

Micah and I are settling in very nicely I think.  We just slid out of our old college habits and straight into our “Adult Habits”… although it’s still so weird to think of ourselves as Adults… I mean, we just graduated from college for goodness sakes!  All of our friends are still trying to complete their Junior Years, and here we are, graduated, with a house and jobs.

Adia: Fief, Round 8, Summer

Julio Fief is 28, Carla Fief is 11, Tate and Stewart Fief are 4

Narrated by Carla Fief

Rascal grew up this year.  He grew up a lot actually.  It stinks, everyone seems to be growing except for me.  I’m the shortest person in my class!  I’m taller than Tate and Stewart, but that’s only because they’re four!

Candi and Lane Marshall are 31, Rhett Marshall is 6, Vera Marshall is 5, Alexa Marshall is 2

Narrated by Lane Marshall

This month’s family project was fixing up the yard.  Since the winter snow has finally melted, we’re now faced with the task of removing all of the leaves left over from winter and fall.  We managed to make it pretty fun for the kids, they like doing “Big kid work” anyway, so it wasn’t a lost cause.
