Kids Say…Meet Garrett and Riley
Garret is 7 years old and in 2nd grade and Riley is 6 years old and in 1st grade. They want to go on a cruise with their dad this summer and they think that would be very cool. They also like huge sets of Lego and being outside.
What is your favorite color?
Garrett: It’s basically yellow
Riley: No, it’s like yellow and brown mixed together. And I like glitter added to it too. I tried to make glitter glue and added white too, and it turned out kind of neat.
What do you like about school?
Riley: My favorite subject is science. One day I did this really cool science experiment where we talked about real worms and gummy worms. The real worms crawled on my hand. They kept them in a bucket in the refrigerator. They moved kind of slow because they were cold I think.
Garrett: I like math class. I like subtracting and grouping. I’m good at math too.
So, you lost a tooth today Riley?
Riley: Yes, at lunch. The nurse gave me a treasure chest to put it in.
What are you going to do with it?
Riley: I’m not going to give it to the tooth fairy tonight. I’m going to hold on to it for a little bit. I want to keep it to look at it.
Garrett: I’ve lost 6 teeth! I lost some two years ago and last year, but not this year so far.
Where is the best place you’ve ever been?
Riley: Mine is Universal Studio
Garrett: I would say… (Riley whispers something about not forgetting a place they’ve been)
Garrett: Washington, D.C. That’s my favorite place.
What do you think you’ll be when you grow up?
Garrett: I want to be an electrical engineer. I want to invent and make things with electricity.
Riley: Military. I want to be an Air Force pilot. But I won’t get to choose. I might be Army or Air Force. Then they will tell me what I’ll get to do.
What do you do for fun?
Riley: I like to roller skate
Garrett: I like to take things apart and see what they can do.
Riley: Engineers like to take stuff apart, take out the messed up thing, and then put it back together with the right pieces and take away the wrong piece.
Garrett: My favorite sport is hockey. I play and watch.
Riley: I quit hockey, but I still like it, it’s just not my favorite subject, but it is my favorite to watch.
Who is the funniest person in your family?
Garrett: Usually me or my dad
Riley: I’m really fun
Garrett: Yes, you are
Riley: I still think I’m the funniest person in our family
