Spring Forward

"She only has a couple months left," Ethan tells his brother one afternoon at Diggity Dog House. It's the start of the spring semester and they found time after classes and between club meetings to get together for a quick bite of hot dogs.

"Don't remind me," Adam says as he looks sadly across the table.

March/April 2033 Birthdays & Anniversaries

March 2033 - Del Sol Valley, California

March means that Jacob and Mia will no longer be kids. Or at least, that's what they think. They'll always be kids to their parents, no matter how old they are, but they are moving officially into their last year of preteenhood and turning twelve this rainy day.

But the rain doesn't bother the celebration inside the Lloyd house. Their family has flown across the country to celebrate this day with them. Grandpa William loves to play Don't Wake the Llama with Mia and Jacob. They're the youngest of his grandchildren and he hopes maybe they'll still play this game whenever they're visiting each other.

The Start of Something New

January 2033 - Arcadia, North Carolina
Gates-Watson household - Logan is 43, Shelley is 43, James is 18

James is still home from college for that winter break between semesters. It’s nice to be home, but he isn't really looking forward to working on New Year's Eve. It's not that he hates making money, it's that working means he doesn't get to celebrate the New Year, he only gets to wait on others who are celebrating.
