The kids love the park. We seem to always be there. Selena has become very good friends with Annalise. They like playing on the spaceship, maybe even more than Jonathan! Selena always plays with everyone that is at the park. She is really such an outgoing person!
Annalise is the girl in in the green dress, and Selena is at the top with the telescope. Johnny likes to play on the monkey bars more than the spaceship. He isn’t as outgoing as Selena, and most of the kids are on the spaceship. After Annalise left to go home, Selena decided to play with her brother on the monkey bars.
After all his practice on the monkey bars, Jonathan was very good at them and he played on them easily. Selena usually stuck to the spaceship, so she didn’t have much practice on the monkey bars. In fact, she almost fell off! Johnny decided to teach Selena how to do it. I think he enjoyed having his sister to himself, because when we go to the park, Selena always goes to play with Annalise instead. I really liked having time to work on my programming skills. I finally got that promotion. Mitch and I have really gone back to working on our job performance with both Jonathan and Selena more able to care for themselves.
I had no idea how much I missed programming. Jonathan had his teenage birthday today. Mitch baked him a hamburger-looking cake. Selena seemed sad about it though.
“He’s gonna be older than me! He won’t be able to play with me anymore.”
“Annalise can play with you.”
“Yeah, I know. But what if he doesn’t like me?”
“Selena, he’s still gonna be the same person! Just…older.”
She thought about it. “Ok. We better go celebrate!”
After he blew out the candles, they both still had school projects to do. I helped Selena build her volcano, outside, because it was a volcano! Mitch helped Johnny with his bridge project.
Hasn’t Jonathan grown into a handsome young man? Mitch and I decided to build him a separate room. Teenagers really need their space, especially once Selena grows up! Can you imagine them sharing a room?! So we gave Johnny the new room, Selena went into the room we were in, and Mitch and I got to get our old room back!
A/N: I seriously didn’t take enough pictures of their childhood…but we are getting closer to generation 2! I’m excited to start Selena’s perspective but also sad because I’ve had a lot of fun writing Nadia’s! 🙂
