Harshire: Year 1 - Summer 1: Terra  
Photobucket
Here is another update from Harshire, this time from the Terra family. :)
Also, I just want to let you guys know that I won't be very active during the next two weeks because I am going on a road trip with my boyfriend and his parents to South Dakota. I am so excited, I cannot wait!



Photobucket
Colette and Laurence Terra are very much in love. They are lucky to have three bolts.

Photobucket
Both Laurence and Colette rolled the want to have a baby and Colette's LTW is to marry off six children so they got started right away.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Laurence and Colette are one of those couples who like to do most everything together.

Photobucket
Colette's pregnancy began to show.

Photobucket
I wanted Colette to adopt this dog even though they have almost no money and aren't going to be getting any richer in the near future. However, it ran off before she could adopt it.

Photobucket
Laurence's LTW is to top the gaming career and so he has started his career and is doing well so far.

Laurence got a promotion from a chance card.

Colette gave birth to twins - a boy and a girl. The girl is Annette and she has black hair while the boy is James who has brown hair.

Laurence and Colette were so poor that they couldn't even afford a crib.

Photobucket
Laurence is promoted.

And after I correctly answered another chance card he was promoted again even though he was lacking a logic skill point. They don't have enough money to spend on a chess table quite yet.

Colette helped James and Annette with their birthdays. They are both quite adorable.

Sorry for the short update but Colette was a very hard sim to take care of while pregnant - perhaps one of the worst I have encountered. And of course she wants to have six children.

The twins are adorable <3
But ahh, poor Colette! I bet she's regretting her LTW! ;)

Thank you!
I bet she is too. Six kids with no money and such hard pregnancies is quite a challenge.

I live in Rapid City, South Dakota! :D
I imagine you'll be seeing Mt. Rushmore and the hills?
It's so so so beautiful up here, I hope you have a great time. :)

Yes.
I had a great time when we went two years ago so I am sure I will enjoy myself. :)

Laurence and Colette are such a cute couple. Good thing they've got a lotta love, considering they don't have much else. :) Laurence is working on that, though -- congrats on those lucky chance cards! Both of the twins are cute, but I like Annette's features, in particular.

Thank you. :)
And sorry it took me a while to reply.

Nice little family, and I'm interested to see how all the children look like when they grow up. Did you have Laurence do the crossword puzzle from the paper, or are you just saving up for a chess table?

I dread to think how difficult it'll be raising six children in that household: I take it Colette is/will be staying home to look after their brood rather than trying to balance a job and childcare?
olivethegreatolivethegreat on July 18th, 2012 02:26 pm (UTC)
I didn't know that the crossword puzzle gives logic skill points. Thanks for that tip!
Colette has to stay home and take care of the kids because peasants are not allowed to hire service sims. Once they have more money (if they ever do) I may buy her a crafting bench or something so that she can earn some money that way.
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. :)

You're welcome :) I recall hearing it near the beginning of my mod-the-game experiences, but never really used it because it takes so long to skill using it (but if you've got no other options, it's a free and delivered daily option).

I did skim the rules to see if there was anything about job restrictions, but I assumed they wouldn't be able to afford childcare rather than not be allowed to hire sims in. I'd personally let her have some time free when the eldest become teens: pass the childcare to them for a bit and (like you said) if they have the spare money get a crafting bench -- the pottery one from FT is excellent for earning money when you get to a gold badge as the amphora is cheap to make but sells for a huge mark-up ($1k for the wheel, make for $60, sell for $300). Comparatively, it takes more time and money to get there, but once you've got the gold badge it's awesome for easy, quick money.
