My Thoughts

Finally some more scene time with Drew and Sarah, guess they got over the whole seeing his mom with Mr Cyr thing. And now we find out Sarah has met Amy's parents and they get along. What 16 year old forgets his cell phone? Nice to see Drew is not afraid to hold hands with Amy in public, good on them. Now I just wish he would talk to his mother about school and his interests. What I did find strange was while Haddie's parents might struggle to send Her to Cornell there was no such discussion for Drew and UC Davis. And you would time Sarah would have more money issues than Adam, even after starting a new business.

Also nice to see some Sarah and Zeek scenes, confiding in Zeek about Drew pulling away and joking Zeek about buying the Air Stream without telling his wife. I can somewhat understand Zeek not wanting to tell the kids about the heart condition but this being TV it's likely to come out at some point. It was also a nice way to give the grandparents more to do and buying the Air Stream is probably a good way to have them go off at the end of the season for the summer. It was a good touch to have Zeek remember about Camille wanting to paint, they should have a nice time.

Poor little Haddie, always being lets behind, after Max's special needs, baby Nora and now the new business something has to give. I hope they can work out something to pay for Cornell. Second week in a row with not much Max.

Is Zoe having second thoughts about giving the baby to Julia? Liked how she was building the crib herself, loved the safety glasses for using the power drill, safety first.

Jasmine was a little jealous of how much Jabbar likes Lily, but also jealous that Crosby has found someone that he likes and they have music in common. I just hope Lily and Joe aren't hurt if they decide to get back together.

And finally Amber and Booby Little, she was great at the fund raiser and of course they had a moment, several moments during the episode, will they act on it?
