Catherine is holding Hans and Lyle is holding Regina.

Previously:  Catherine got knocked up by Tobias, moved in with Fern and eventually found herself living alone with twins.  After a date with Lyle, he convinced her to propose to him, making her think it was all her idea.

Now:  They are both level 7 in business and the family is dirt poor.  The kids are just waiting for their birthday.  Lyle is trying to convince Catherine to have another baby.  Since Catherine only wants to marry off two children, she is secretly on birth control.

On day 2, the twins aged up outside, in the rain.  They are cute, but Hans sure looks like a Mini Tobias.  Taxes of $150 were paid (yes, they are that poor).

Education is very important, so Catherine and Lyle (who both got promotions) immediately help the kid with their homework.

The season is half over.  The twins are my major focus really.  They are adorably good kids.  Regina is the first to max her body skill.

Catherine got a promotion to level 9.  She needs five skill points in Logic (2), Charisma (2) and Creativity (1) to even think of having a promotion.  I’m just glad that Lyle has a lot of friends, or they would really be in trouble.

Lyle arrives home 4 hours later with his own promotion to level 9.  Luckily he doesn’ t need nearly as many skill points as his wife and should max his career the next day.

Lyle and Catherine live on the energizer overnight and skill madly.

I finally remembered to put lights in the house (go me!) and these two are just down to needing logic and have barely any time to get it done.

It was close, but only Lyle managed to get his skill goals done.  Catherine should get her promotion the next day (the last day of the season).

*sigh*  His mad skilling was probably not needed.  I wish Catherine had gotten a chance card too.  That money is a huge need though.

Lyle helps Catherine get her logic done after work that day.

Tyler stopped by and Hans is spending time getting to know his step-uncle while Regina is recuperating after a hard day at school.  Hans still has not finished his physiology book, so that must get done tonight.

Very productive night for some.  Hans maxes his body skill and finds out that he loves fitness.  Lyle maxes his logic skill and Catherine gets her needed points.

Regina only ever wants to read novels and watch movies, so she is very easy to keep happy.

I wasn’t paying attention to the date.  It’s the first day of winter, so I am about 12 hours past leaving this family.  The kids spend their Friday afternoon doing homework and waiting for Catherine to come home.  Lyle spent his day off blogging about games and trying to max game enthusiasm.

Catherine shows up at 4 and becomes the 11th Tycoon!

After years of being poor, Catherine takes a quarter of the family savings and buys Shademoor’s first Art Gallery.

Next time, the kids will become teens and maybe Lyle will finally get that baby he wants?
