I miss you. It seems like forever since we were at camp. So much happened over the last few weeks that I am dying to tell you. Jin says soon I can have a simmail account and then we can talk to each other all the time. Do you have one? If you tell me what it is, then I can write you as soon as I get mine!
After crying so much when Jin picked me up from the camp, I slept for most of the boat ride home. We got here just as it was getting dark. So I didn’t see much of the house. Mama Sun made me ravioli for supper and apple pie, which is my favourite. Even though I slept on the boat ride home, I had a bath and went to bed. It felt good just to sleep in a real bed and the new one is sooo comfy. Mama Sun said the bed was a gift from her cousin Ciane and it came from very far away. She said Little Bee Designers wanted to use another bed, but Mama said this one was a much nicer bed and they couldn’t use any other one. I don’t care, I just love it. My whole room is just awesome and purple, just like my mom liked best. I’m thinking I want to do some pictures of my own to put on the walls.
Jin snuck in and took this picture when Mama was reading me a story. So I included it so you could see my pretty Mama Sun. Only Sun could make a book about gardening sound fun.
I woke up really early that morning. Jin and Sun were still sleeping, so I took my camera outside to take pics to show you. Then Mama Sun developed them for me to include in this letter. Here is the front of the house.
Mama Sun says it’s a work in progress and that it will take time for us to make it a real home. I asked her how we do that and she said a real home is filled with stuff we love and all the memories we make there. She also said the house is tropical storm proofed with all the best construction things, so we would always be safe no matter what. I wonder if they kept fighting all through the building, like they were doing before I left. Cause I know Jin had different ideas for our house than what we got. I’m kinda glad I wasn’t here after all.
I really like the gazebo next to the house. We can hang out there together as a family, or paint. In the picture you can see a painting Jin is working on.
His painting skills are just so good. I wish I could paint like that!
I did some exploring around the island for the next few days. It’s really quiet now that it’s just me. I miss all the girls at the camp, but I miss you and Violet the most. Mama Sun said I don’t have to start with school work till the Fall, so I can enjoy the summer. Jin lets me play in the water at the beach as long as he has time to watch me. I am NOT allowed to go swimming without an adult. The buddy system he calls it. Never swim alone.
Remember the day Violet almost drowned in the pond at camp? And Miss Quinn was right there too! That was really scary! So it’s not a rule I am ever going to break! Not EVER!
The days are long to fill, so sometimes I spend a lot of the day staring up at the sky on the pool bed. The waves just keep pushing me back onto the beach so I never go anywhere.
But Jin makes me paint too. Painting is not something I like to do, but he says it’s important I practice. He tells me stories about how my mom practiced a lot with Mama Sun’s mom when she was just my age. I do not understand how everyone fits in this family. I hope someday, they explain it to me so I’m not so confused. To make Jin happy I paint, even though I don’t think practicing is really going to make me any better.
After a week of being home, Sun surprised me with the news we were heading to France to see her moms. Two moms, another thing to understand. We left Sophie home and went for three days. You would not believe what happened! Jin and Sun got married! They didn’t go to get married and it all seemed to be about they had to instead of romantic like. I mean they wanted to, I just think there was something behind it that I don’t quite understand.
Sun was such a beautiful bride! I will show you pics in the next letter. Oh and I got my hair cut to look almost like yours! But the best part is, we have a new addition to the family as well.
His name is Biscuit. Jin and Sun got him for me over in France and he is just the tiniest sweetest thing. He is very clever too.
(Sun was busy with her camera again!)
When we got home, we had to introduce Biscuit to Sophie. But Jin said he really wasn’t worried, because Sophie was such a sweet dog that he figured she would just look out for Biscuit. We took a video of it too, but I can’t show you that in a letter. Maybe later, when I get my simmail account.
Biscuit follows me everywhere! We have this blue and white lighthouse up on a tall hill behind our backyard on a really steep hill. It’s tough for me to climb, but he still makes it! Watching him run back down the hill is really funny. Sometimes he does somersaults, because he trips on his own feet from going so fast!
Sun says I have to say goodbye now or it’s going to cost a fortune to mail this. If you don’t have a simmail account, can you ask your mom and dad to get one. We could talk all the time then!
Write back soon please!
P.S. Jin uploaded Biscuits video to his simvideo account. Here is the link for you to look it up.

So Many Special ThanX To Mention
I want to say a special thanX to my sim friend ciane who bought me the Topsy Turvy single bed from the store, that I so greatly wanted to have for Jade ever since she was born. However, due to one of the last updates, I am unable to use store content in game without suffering glitches. I’ve planned this for so long, that I couldn’t leave it out of the story. Ciane, Thank you so much for buying me that gift! Hopefully it will all come around, and those of us having issues, will be able to use store content again!
Did you see those really cute poses with Biscuit????? Deb came to my rescue again she is so awesome! There are a few more to the set and I will surely include them in the next few chapters. Big shout out to Deb for all her hard work! Thank you! You can find more of Deb’s poses HERE I haven’t gotten them all up yet but I will.
Thank you to RO and SweetP
This collaboration with RO and SweetP has been a lot of fun! We have more to show you coming up so stay tuned. I’m really pleased to be able to show RosemaryMarie’s readers, Jilly’s young life that RO didn’t get a chance to write, as her focus was on Leo.
RO and I hope to see you again!
