Round 3 - Forrester

The Forrester Family:

Leo Forrester
Family / Pleasure
LTW:  6 grandkids
Motivation:  Overachiever
Income Track:  Business Owner

Tracy Forrester
Popularity / Grilled Cheese
LTW:   Captain Hero
Motivation:  Average
Income Track:  Career (Police)

Angela Forrester
Knowledge / Pleasure
LTW:  Max All Skills
Motivation:  Underachiever

Bianca Forrester (child)

Leo heard a rumor that there were some new poverty level businesses available.  He got on the phone and quickly snatched one up. 

 Leo purchased a small bar.  Now the poverty class has some place to spend their hard earned cash.

Leo met some interesting people at the bar.  When it was slow, Leo would play chess with the customers out back.
In no time at all Leo had a nice little business built up.  He has fulfilled his requirements to move up to the working class.

Tracy goes into labor and successfully gives birth to a daughter.  They named her Charlotte.  (I'm praying she won't get knocked up again.  If she does just know that I had nothing to do with it.)

Damn you for becoming a father again.  You have no right to reproduce.
Leo becomes enemies with Jerald Matthews.  I have a feeling these two must have gotten into it at someone elses house.  If so I wasn't paying a bit of attention.

The family buys a ballet bar and Bianca just loves it.  She had asked her dad for it and was thrilled when he had it installed.

Angela is still "dating" what's his name.  Yeah I haven't bothered to learn it yet.  I need to since these two will probably wind up together someday soon.

Bianca is best friends with Billy Gaither.  Wouldn't they make a cute couple.

Yeah.  Yeah.  {What they hell is she talking about?}
OMG, those Gaithers.  They just aren't right.
This puts Tracy at level 7 in her career more than surpassing her needs to go up to the working class.

They grow up so fast.

Charlotte Forrester
Personality:  10-1-10-1-10
(Can you say future cleaning ghost?)

That is a long way off of course and completely the wrong thing to say about such a lovely toddler.  But it was the first thought to cross my mind.

Bianca and Charlotte get to know each other at the activity table.

Mom's a studying and dad's a snoozing.

So they totally missed Angela growing into adulthood. 

Angela Forrester
Knowledge / Pleasure
LTW:  Max All Skills
Motivation:  Underachiever
Income Track:  Business Owner

The next morning Angela moves out of her parents house and goes off to live in the sim bin.  She has her cell phone so she can keep in touch.

Tracy starts craving grilled cheese again.   If Leo doesn't stop knocking her up I'm going to have to do something drastic.

And finally, Bianca becomes a teen.

Bianca Forrester
Pleasure / Fortune
LTW:  Hall of Famer
Motivation:  Overachiever

Having completed all requirements, the Forrester family moves out of their poverty level home and moves into the second working class house.  With the opening up of a new poverty house, Angela Forrester moves out of the sim bin and into her parents old house.

After reading about it in another simmers blog, I tracked down the bush that keeps furniture in place when sims move out.  I will be using it in this neighborhood.  I mainly wanted to keep the kitchen and bathrooms in place.  In some cases though the family may leave couches and other items that they just don't think will fit into their new lifestyle.  

I have now officially caught up my blogging of this challenge.  Now I can sim.  Yeah.  I hope to start working on the Project Eden prosperity in the near future.  I played one sim house but have made myself stop since I'm a round or so behind on blogging. 

Round 2 - Filsher

The Filsher Family:

Maxi Filsher
Knowledge / Romance
LTW:  Max All Skills
Motivation:  Overachiever
Income Track - Career

Kathleen Bradford Filsher
Popularity / Knowledge
LTW:  20 best friends
Motivation:  Overachiever
Income Track - Career

A very pregnant Maxi spends her time studying.

 But sometimes she heads off to work.  She had just gotten home from work with a promotion when the first labor pains started.
Where is Kathleen when I need her?


A daughter.  I'll name you Nyxie.

Oh Maxi you're home from work.  And you've had the baby. Imagine that.
I think I'll get another promotion soon.  I can just feel it.
Ah sweet Nyxie.  I can't believe I'm a mother at my age.
Double double oil and trouble.  Wait.  That's not right.

Kathleen creates a mystical helper to keep the house clean.  She looks like a she but she sounds like a he.  It's an it I guess.

Well sometimes I just need to get away from all those other Saturdays.  You know what I mean.

Yes.  I've got another one growing away in there.
Happy Birthday to you.

Nyxie Filsher
Personality:  5-1-9-5-5

Life is good.
Nyxie dreams of flying away in a space ship. 

If only I could be half that flexible at her age.  If only I could be half that flexible now.

Maxi sneaks off to work to get a raise.

Baby Time!

Why do I go into labor when I get home from work?  Why do I go to work in my underwear?

Another daughter.  I'll name her Nexia.
I was really happy to get a no nosed baby.  I think they are sooo cute.  Both members of the Filsher family have met the requirements to go up to the next level.  Only problem is that they don't have enough net worth.  I'm going to have to think of a way for them to make 20k.  Maybe they'll get a nice chance card or something.

Thus ends round two.  Forgot to get a snap at the score card.  With one family moving out of poverty, another must move in.  Next round we will meet the Masters family consisting of two parents and two teenagers.

Just one more house and I'm caught up with my blogging.  Then I get to play some more.  YEAH!
