Happy Trails

No, I don't think your kid will relate this toy to going to the dentist or getting a shot at all. And by no, I mean yes, he's totally going to relate the two.

From the very first day back in May, the world of Michelle, Tim, Olivia, Ella and Jake was- well, something clearly different. And for the past few months, we've tried to deliver you something worthwhile. We hope you agreed with us, and we hope you've had fun getting to this point today.

But all families grow and change, and ours here is no different. Today they go off in a different path, to live their lives their own way. Today we say goodbye to Michelle and Tim's family in our daily writeups, and we hope you'll miss them as much as we will.

That isn't to say they're gone forever. Fans can expect them to pop up again from time to time, like seeing an old friend's car suddenly turning into the driveway. But we wanted to make it clear: we'll be returning to our old-style themeless writeups later this week, and this exciting experiment is, for now, over.

Thanks to everyone who kept up, enjoyed, commented or referenced us and what we were doing. Ultimately, you're the people we want to entertain, and you're the people who matter to us the most.

And like Michelle said … "Anything's possible. Who knows?"
