The Five Units Challenge - Report #10 - Into the Wild

With Parenthood GP installed, I'm testing this all through a challenge ongoing for 3 generations. So far the founders raised 4 children, 2 of them are already teens. I like Parenthood GP very much, and it's fun to see that also other installments from community lots to activities get a new flavor. Today they will test yet another feature!

Gathering a family for a group meal is very easy, and they normally sit long enough for some chatting, too.

Boys share one bedroom upstairs, while girls Fiona and Donna share another room.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #8 - Teenagers

I'm getting quite addicted to my The Five Units Challenge (rules), in fact I like Parenthood GP so much that The Sims 4 is becoming a good game! There's still a lot to explore, and along the road I also find that there is plenty of content from previous EPs and GPs that I did not try yet.

 All of Sylvia and Abraham's children are now in school, and toddler stuff was set aside. No more potty training, highchairs or tower building in a while.

The extra time allows for Sylvia to get more involved with the garden. There are many plants she would like to add, although she is mainly growing the base species.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #7 - Skill Pondering

Days are very different now that 3 of the 4 children have started school. They take even better care of themselves, and the parenting is more about assisting with skill building and manners than to handle basic care. My challenge has worked well this far, but it's only just started...

Twins Rudolph and Sammy are out playing with a kid that Rudolph met in school, Clara Adrian who lives at Oasis Springs. Fiona is also with them playing, over there by the pirate ship.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #6 - Family Photo

My little challenge goes on and it's time to celebrate! Sylvia maxed out her cooking skills, so cooking will be the theme of her outdoor unit! Because she is first, she can pick any of the 5 prepared slots - they are all free.

The entire family celebrates with a solid serving of mac and cheese. Well, they forgot to place Donna in her highchair, so she ate while seated in the armchair instead.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #5 - On The Move

Life goes on in the Clump family - go here if you like to read about this challenge. Sylvia and Abraham now have 4 kids, and it's quite a handful to tackle! I expected the days to become a tad repetitive, but because the children reach new life stages, there will constantly be new content from the Parenthood GP for me to discover. I really enjoy it all!

Although, I've been thinking of moving this household, more about that below.

Abraham and Sylvia works quite well as a couple. I was a bit worried for Abraham being a Loner, would he coop with such a big family?

The Five Units Challenge - Report #4 - Skills status

My Five Units Challenge goes on, and it's time to consider the founders' main skills as well as the outdoor units they are supposed to build. The household now counts 2 adults, 2 children, 1 toddler and 1 baby. Thanks to the Parenthood GP this will probably become my most hectic household ever.

Everyday is starting to get real hectic for the Clump family. Abraham brings in most money by painting, and thanks to his latest masterpiece selling for nearly §2.000 they were able to expand the house with a new story. Sylvia grows and sells crops, which also brings in some money.

The Five Units Challenge - Report #3 - Growing Household

The Clump family lives on, and in this report from my ongoing challenge twins Rudolph and Sammy will grow up! In future reports there will probably be less pictures per lifestage, but right now I'm enjoying watching the everyday actions of the toddlers, and have to share :)

I'm impressed with how well adults take care of their small children on free will. My only complaint is that when I check what action they are up to, the thumb will not tell, because so many interactions starts with Talk or Walk, etc. I can tell they initiated something, but I'm not able to see whether I should interrupt them or if it's the action I wanted them to perform.
