Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 10: The Rossiter 2 Family  
Previously on Rossiter2s, Duncan and Graham became toddlers. Duncan was a good baby, Graham not so much. Then they grew up to children. Gila gained some weight.

Arlo Rossiter, pleasure sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice, OTH: tinkering
Gila Rossiter, pleasure sim, LTW: have 50 dream dates, 4 sloppy, 7 outgoing, 8 active, 3 serious, 3 grouchy, OTH: sports
Graham, child, 9 neat, 3 shy, 9 active, 9 playful, 1 nice, OTH: games
Duncan, child, 5 neat, 3 shy, 10 active, 6 playful, 10 nice, OTH: tinkering

Those stats sorta explain why Duncan is such a good kid...and Graham is not.

Good job, Arlo.

First day of school...usual responses to grades.

It's not okay to leave Graham alone...but it's okay for Duncan, cuz he's a good kid. The boys play cops and neglectful parents.

Gila gets home in time (with Evlin as usual). Graham greets her: "Oh Mommy, I was afraid you had turned into a ghost!"

Marjorie comes by and steals the paper, right in front of two aunts and a cousin.

Graham and Gila play soccer that night. It's dark, so I don't know if you can see Gila making faces at her son.

Arlo is promoted!

Homework session

Duncan learns to study! And Graham...

Not so much.

Show off.

Headmaster time! Arlo makes turkey.

First the headmaster enjoys the dinner.

Then the tour.

The headmaster thinks about Gila while she thinks about her brilliant son.

So Duncan got into private school...but not Graham! I didn't know that could happen.

Date time for Arlo and Gila. I guess they're not going anywhere.

So they have a dream date at home.

I guess Arlo has gained some weight too. These two are getting awfully comfortable.

Duncan's first day of private school

Arlo is invited to the nature lot.

Gila plays soccer with Jocelyn, her friend from work.

Graham finally learns to study! Also, Arlo's shirt is pretty glitchy when he's no longer svelte. This calls for some exercise.

The family goes on an outing to the nature park.

A remote massage

Graham is exhausted. Time to go back home.

More dream dates at home

Garden club eval...they make it with some notes.

Duncan jumps on the bed.

Gila jumps on the couch.

Some hobby photos:

Arlo finds a star.

Graham and Gila smustle.

Arlo and Gila birdwatch.

The family (and Komei) goes hikiing.

BEES! Also, Arlo thinks Komei is hot.

The other Ivy Copur comes over and eats the morning's rotting pancakes.

Gila comes home with a promotion and Evlin.

Graham can't sit down and play Don't Wake the Llama long enough to have any fun.

He gets games enthusiasm anyway.

I recognize that look now...goodbye chicken gnome.

Gila and Arlo call a nanny so they can have a date out.

The soccer has paid off! Gila's lost the weight!

Next round: will Arlo lose his weight or will he have to buy a less glitchy shirt? Also, the twins become teens. And maybe Graham will re-apply to private school. Maybe.

I had that too with one kid accepted and the other not. It depends thorougly on the grades.

Loved the picture of Marjorie stealing the newspaper in full daylight and presence of half the family!

It almost looks like you got a bad apple right there! What will become of little Graham when he grows up, one wonders?

awww, poor Graham got dissed by the headmaster... were his grades lower than a C? I too loved the tandem scolding when Marjorie stole the paper, too funny!
