Generation 2: Aerissa, Xander, and Caleb
Upon Aerissa's graduation from high school, Darcy decided to purchase a new car. Previously, Darcy and Aerissa utilized the town's taxi service or car pooled with co-workers, but after graduating, Aerissa was putting in a few extra hours at the book store. Darcy also figured that as the boys grew older, the whole family would need more access to transportation.
Aerissa enjoyed the freedom that young adulthood was providing to her. She graduated at the top of her class, but wasn't entirely sure what direction she wanted to take now. Although she was putting in a few extra hours at the bookstore, she wasn't working full-time there. While her brothers were at school and her mother at work, Aerissa took advantage of the quiet and solitude throughout the house so that she could paint and write.
Xander continued his guitar lessons and started to feel more confident about his skills to shred the axe…acoustically. Starting small, he would strum a few chords during house parties. It didn't take long before he realized that whenever he started to play, a crowd would gather around him. So, one evening, Xander decided to take his guitar down to the park. While he was playing, he started tapping his foot against his unlatched guitar case, which fell open at his feet. Xander didn't want to interrupt his song to move it, and was surprised when some passersby dropped a few simoleans into the case. Xander decided this might be more fun than his after school job at the mausoleum.
One of Xander's biggest fans seemed to be his friend, Dixie. Darcy was surprised to see Dixie stopping by the house more frequently after school and on the weekends to hang out with Xander. She seemed a little odd to Darcy, but Xander seemed happy to hang out with her. The only thing that got frustrating for Darcy was when Dixie's visits interrupted Xander's chores.
