Welcome back to Range Valley, population 4,760.
When we last left the Shibatas, they had sent their older two girls to university. Mackenzie and Leila have two girls left at home.
Katrien, the older girl, gets to know her neighbours a little bit better. Pearl Zeelan is a pretty close friend.
And Isabel is the baby of the family, busy here scribbling on paper and calling it art. Same.
Katrien loves to dance. If I lose track of her, I’ll find her here, in the kitchen, dancing to the stereo.
Katrien also gets to know one of the older Zeelan girls better. This is Opal, a fellow romance sim, and Pearl’s older sister.
Still, the girls make very good aspiration fodder for each other, so have at it, ladies.
Isabel finishes up her last skill, and it’s birthday time!
She is a pretty good mix of her mothers. Leila’s ears are the most striking feature, but she definitely looks a bit like Mackenzie, too.
Speaking of Mackenzie, it was time for another birthday!
I’m starting to feel like the Zeelans are the only family in the neighbourhood. Isabel meets and befriends Violet, and the two hit it off very well.
Isabel is also a pretty smart cookie, and brings home an A+.
Mackenzie and Leila remain cute as ever. They have been together since they were teenagers, and they are still super affectionate together.
Whilst Katrien continues to see Opal quite regularly. I don’t see a future for the two, but they make a cute couple.
The Shibatas head down to Bump, Baby and Beyond to earn a little more cash, and works the business up to level 10!
Leila’s older sister, Liora, and her husband, Ethan, give the business a ton of stars simply by flirting a lot. I’ll take it, to be honest.
And Jennie gives us a Best of the Best award!
“What can I say? I love to see old people grabbing on each other!”
“That’s a bit weird, isn’t it Jennie?”
“Maybe. Anyway, I have to go, there’s a clump of greenery outside Range Valley Old Folks Home with my name on it.”
“Ew, Jennie. Ew.”
Upon their return, the Shibatas discover that they have been gifted a genie lamp! Yay!
Mackenzie wishes for peace of mind, and then cold hard cash.
Katrien invites Opal over one last time, as she’s leaving for university. No doubt the girls will get together again once they’re both a bit older, but for now, it’s goodbye.
Katrien just manages to get out before the snows arrive, and Leila and Isabel build a snowman together in the back garden. And here, we leave the Shibata family.
