Welcome back to Range Valley, population 4,200.
We start the week with Lachlan heading to work. He is so nearly done with the education career, which would make him perma plat.
Whilst Joanna stays home with Casey, and teaches him how to put blocks in holes.
And Joanna goes into labour as her husband heads for his carpool. It’s fine – he’s not leaving her alone. The toddler is there, too!
A girl! Bethany Parrish has her grandfather’s blonde hair, which is a nice little throwback.
With a new baby in the house, Lachlan works on getting Casey’s last skill up, in time for his birthday.
Casey has his dad’s enormous ears, which I like.
Lachlan becomes Education Minister, and brings Benjamin Van Herten home from work!
The two renew their friendship, and Lachlan sends Benjamin home.
“Aren’t you going to talk about how cute she is?”
No. No I am not.
I’ll be honest, I was very surprised at how ugly Beth looks. I am hoping she’ll grow into her looks, because she’s very unfortunate at the moment. I might pop Lachlan on birth control, as I don’t think I want them having any more kids if they’re going to look like Beth.
Joanna apparently heard me, and quickly gets knocked up before I can stop them.
She stays at home, alternately studying for her next promotion, and teaching Beth her skills.
We get confirmation of the newest Parrish baby.
Since they can’t get any more pregnant, they celebrate.
Lachlan loves his little girl, regardless of her looks. He gives her one last cuddle while she’s still small enough to pick up.
Beth looks a lot better older. Especially with a littel bow in her hair.
And Beth starts cracking open the books. Lachlan brought home the Education bookcase, so the Parrish kids have their scholarship skills more or less instantly.
And we end with a very tired Joanna. She’s pregnant, and this pregnancy has caused a much bigger strain on her than the last two did.
