By Tessa Dean January 2021

The weather was starting to change. The lake vacation seemed long ago. School was starting back into session and so most of the Banks children were busy getting ready for their first days of school. There was school shopping to do, both clothes and school supplies. Each child was given a list by their teacher as to what school supplies they would need so none were purchased before the school year began.

Every year Mrs. Banks collected all the unused items so she was ready to start filling each child’s list of required school supplies. Thomas was in technical school for auto mechanics and he used whatever supplies weren’t needed by his brothers.


Thomas and Ginny were sitting on the window bench their faces pressed to the window pane as they watched the sparrows flittering around. The weather was getting cooler and soon snow flakes would be flurrying about.

They were talking about the dimensions of the apartment they were going to look for. They had all the brochures from the local apartment complexes, plus the ads for any private owners offering apartments. Although they were only a couple right now and one bedroom would work, they were planning on starting their family once they were married and so they were thinking about a two bedroom apartment if it would fit into their budget. If not they would have to wait until the time came

Mrs. Carpenter was finally told about the engagement and Ginny now sported a lovely diamond engagement ring that Thomas had picked out for her all by himself. He had surprised her with the ring by tying it on a ribbon around a teddy bear’s neck that he had won for her at the carnival. He got down on one knee right there in front of all their friends. The boys were all laughing, but the girls were all crying. Ginny was the first of the group to be engaged. A couple of their friends already had babies, but they weren’t married.
