Range Valley – Round 9 – Zeelan

Welcome to Range Valley, population 3,240.

The Zeelans moved out of Mina’s parents’ home, and into their own large house. They are both family sims, and they want as many babies as possible. They already have two daughters, and Mina is pregnant.

Opal is their youngest daughter, and is being a bit sulky with her last skilling before her birthday. Also, Mina is in her ugly maternity for some reason.

And their older daughter, Ivy, plays chess with Karsten. Ivy has one nice point, and cheats as if it’s her job.

This pregnancy takes a toll. Not quite to Rosalie Parmeley levels of three bowls of cereal, but still…

Opal finally picks up the last of her skills!

Opal’s birthday!

Opal looks like a better mix of her parents than Ivy. To me, Ivy just looks like her mother.

Karsten teaches the girls to study. Mina might take care of the babies and toddlers a lot, but once they’re a bit older, Karsten is their main parent.

Mina goes into labour as the girls leave for school.

Baby girl Sage is born first. She has black hair and brown eyes, like Opal.

“Just put that on the floor for safekeeping.”

Baby girl Pearl joins next! Range Valley is experiencing a baby boom at the moment.

Karsten is still in the adventurer career, and Ivy likes to run to greet him when he comes home.

Ivy and Opal bond over the play table. I love having a house big enough to have one of these.

And the chaos begins.

Sage.

And Pearl. Pearl looks a LOT like Mina did at that age.

Of course, it’s not long before the two are expecting again. They both want ten children, but I’m not sure if I’m going to go with it, or if it’s even possible.

The twins get their training started. They are a bit more amenable to it than Opal was, at least.

Karsten has to get involved now. I’m sure he would prefer to be playing chess with Ivy, or swinging Opal around, but Pearl needs to learn to walk.

One poorly taken photo of all four girls playing together. Why? Because it’s a triple birthday.

Ivy grows into a Popularity sim, who wants to Become Captain Hero.

Sage grows up into a pretty kid.

snapshot_c8d4d504_08d4f76b.jpg

As does Pearl.

Mina finally masters parenting. Because four children, and one on the way isn’t evidence enough.

And goes into labour at the bookcase.

Baby Violet is a blonde! I was hoping someone was going to get Karsten’s hair.
