This round in Orchard Valley…..
Let’s start with THE SMITH FAMILY….
After a seemingly never-ending pregnancy, baby boy Bram is born!
A season of birthdays! Gerta grows into a teen, Roy and Ruthie become children, and Bram becomes a toddler! Finally Dinah) on the right) becomes a teen, and now…she looks like her older sister’s twin….
Additionally, a couple brushes with heatstroke and the girls have mostly stopped going to school in favor of helping out with the gardening and the orchard.
And over at THE BLACK FAMILY…
Blossom grows into a toddler, but she has a weirdly smooshed nose…
Delilah becomes a teen! She’s pretty 🙂
Another baby is on the way! What will it be???
A little boy that they decide to name Marvin!
Finally Blossom becomes a child!
They are still the poorest family in the neighborhood though….
MEET THE BISHOP FAMILY!
Okay, so when Delilah and Gerta and Dina all aged up, I realized that there aren’t enough guys in the village to marry, so I decided to throw in one last outsider.
Arnold Bishop, son of Edward and Sarah Bishop, was orphaned when both of his parents were killed while out hunting and gathering!
Now living on his own and providing for himself, Arnold is looking for a potential mate to marry and start his own family with in a few years…
He meets the lovely Delilah Black and finds her quite attractive!
But then he meets Gerta Smith, and there’s something about her that he really likes too… He’ll have to spend some time with each girl and see which one would make a more suitable wife for him.
The MOORE FAMILY had a very rough round….
Jali turned into a cute little toddler!
Jayla finally grew into a teen! Younger sister Trella isn’t doing so well in the village school, and Jayla has stopped going altogether to help out at home with the baby and the gardening.
A new baby girl they name Ajani is born, and Jali grows into a child! Unfortunately, Jali does not feel he had a very good childhood, and he grows up angry and aggressive.
He picks a fight with Trella! And loses….
A woman from the child-stealing tribe down the road comes to lecture Kaz and Arla on their parenting skills, and takes their children away! Now they only have Jayla, and Arla is pregnant again… It’s a sad, sad day for the Moore family 😦
THE HAMILTON FAMILY
Till Hamilton goes on a mission to the enemy tribe to retrieve his children! He returns home with both of his daughters, but he’s unable to retrieve Steve…
Leah gets to know her step-brothers/new brothers! It was quite a shock coming to home to find out that her mother had died and her brother was still missing, but at least she’s back home with her father…
Little Orlo grows into a cute little kid!
I believe they named their new son Richard??? :[ I’m almost certain.
Michael becomes a teenager!!
Michael and his father bond as they catch dinner!
Rachel grows into a toddler!!
A burglar comes in and steals their chairs!! Word of the Hamilton wealth must be spreading throughout the tribes…
Then little Richard-I-Think becomes a toddler! Finally, a complete little family that no one can take from him…
And finally, THE WOODS FAMILY!
Barney grows into a teen!
Rock grows into a toddler, and orphan Mara grows into a pretty teen girl!
Then Rock grows into a child!
Mara and Michael Hamilton become sweethearts!
And finally, Pebbles becomes a teenager! With all these teens in the house, life for the Woods family is bound to be fun….
And that was all for round 4! As of round 4, the Hamilton family is in the lead, and barring another magic lamp, I don’t see the other families ever even coming close to matching their wealth… so it looks like they will likely be the leading family!
