BY JOVE, HE'S GOT IT!
Last Visit: Niles's Girls Marry - Raleigh and Heather exchanged nuptials after graduating from University in their brand new spacious home that was bought with Uni booty from their backpack. (University can be quite lucrative.) This entry was narrated by Raleigh, grandson of Timo Robbins, founder of the Mission on earth. Raleigh lamented the fact that he and his siblings really didn't retain much about the Mission except for the fact they are supposed to have many children. He said he wanted children with Heather anyway, regardless of the Mission, and had made sure the house had plenty of bedrooms. Heather reached two TOC's and was now perm plat. At the end of the entry, Raleigh was still chasing his preferred career, Athletic.

Raleigh's family tree. Raleigh is a Popularity Sim with the want to become a Hall of Famer. At beginning of the round: Hand of Posideon
Heather's family Tree. Heather is a Knowledge Sim with the want to become a Criminal Mastermind, (accomplished) Head of the SCIA, (accomplished) and City Planner.
Heather inherits simoleons from her mother's death.
Raliegh here. As far as the Mission goes, I know even less than I did before but I know one thing for sure, and that is Heather and I have started fulfilling my part in it. We had a boy named Korick.
At any rate. Heather decided to go back to work, and we had to hire a nanny. I am wondering if she had a drinking problem. I was late leaving for work a couple of times because I had to ensure Korick had had his bottle and had a dry diaper before I could leave. That nanny would hit the bar first thing when she entered the house. But Korick was always fine when Heather and I would arrive home from work and the nanny seemed to have her wits about her. I could never catch the nanny outright drunk.
I mentioned last time I thought my dogs Queenie and Jester were expecting pups, and they were. Queenie gave birth to a male and a female, Shannon and Robbi. I didn't keep the pups around because of the baby, so I sent them right off to the animal shelter. I am thinking of getting Queenie fixed so this doesn't happen again.
Korick grew to child, healthy and well adjusted. I felt like we had reached a milestone with him, he was no longer a baby. That drew my mind back to the Mission, I guess once you have had information like that placed in your brain you don't forget it. I started thinking maybe Heather and I should start trying for another child, but Mother Nature isn't with us, so far. I hope that Korick's birth wasn't just a fluke. I do not understand how some of them in the Mission just seem to fill up their home with children, while others of us struggle.
When he was in the house Korick played with his blocks and his drawing pads. Hmm...if I were officially reporting this to the Mission, I would say he was diliglently working on his mechanical skills, and his drafting skill, with some science thrown in when he was working the logic puzzle. HA! That all might be true for the Mission, but when I see him at his table, I see a little boy simply playing.
Xuan: By jove, I think Raliegh's got it! Good man!
Raleigh: Eh????? Ah well......I am hearing things.
It was time for Korick to have another birthday, and my family piled into the house. I guess mom and dad are feelin' like they don't have that much time left, so they have been attending many of the family functions that have been going on in the neighborhood. All my brothers attended, and Java Jan was here as well.
This is the only headmaster I have that isn't a werewolf. I would really like to turn him too. hehe
ODD PICS OUT:
This is different angle shot of Korick's birthday. Is it only Pop Sims that stand there and give that silly wave during a birthday? I have had that happen several times.
I love this shot. This is Yasika (Robbins) Bostic with her four sons: Starting from left to right, Raleigh, Zeon, KeyWon then KeyKel. I remember when all these strapping men were just lil' rugrats running around.
Next to the acutal members of the Robbins family, I think Raleigh is the next in line when it comes to handsome points.

Veronica: I am sorry sir. I am sooo....
Secret Shopper: Madame. There is nothing you can say or do that will save the embarrassment I have suffered this evening in your very public establishment. I am a highly respected journalist, and this as severely damaged my reputation. That employee you have working here is insufferable. I will do my utmost to finish this review, then I will take my leave and decide at home how I am going to handle this.
Veronica: In Reality: Kiss my butt mister. Kennedy is my husband and I love him very much. There isn't anything you can do that will take that away!
Townie: That werewolf you have working here stinks...he growled at me, and drooled on my new shoes. I am never shopping here again!
BACK AT HOME...........the rest of the story.............
Sunny: That Veronica is so nice.....for teaching me this.
(Editor: I became very lazy with pictures and such for the rest of the entry...I had so much fun with the flower shop the first Sim day I played the lot, that I just sort of fast forwarded through the rest of the week. HA!)
Somewhere along the line their son Jarrod was born. Kennedy took more notice of him and cared for him more than Veronica did.
Then it was time for his birthday........
The Coxs' have a quiet evening at home when it is time for Jarrod to age to child.
