University passed quickly for René.  It was time for him to graduate and he had a party, inviting family: parents, Xavier, and Cherie.

René introduced his fiancée to his parents.  First Sebastien…

then Claire.

He was very proud of Marielle.

Cherie was pretty used to seeing public displays of affection (from her parents).

Sebastien was happy to see that his kids still got on.

René‘s friend, Vince, talked to Xavier about moving out – whether his own or Xavier’s back home, I don’t remember.

The party was a success and René left for Veronaville.

His friends, Vince and Patric, had graduated, and left also, although they hadn’t had a party.

Patric, waved goodbye by his fiancee, Hannah

Vince, perhaps angry that his fiancee, Pippa, hadn’t come to see him off

Marielle joined René a year later after she graduated and they met at the bank, cashing in combined assets in order to buy a house.

Patric’s father, Robert Champignon, was beginning to play around.

Claire was having none of it when he came on to her.

Sebastien and Claire had some time in the spa pool and got stuck.  The god had to move them out.

Finally, it was time for Cherie to head off to university.  Her kid sister (in the background) is the only one left of six kids.
