I sat the kids down this morning one at a time and did an interview with them. I used to do it regularly when they were small, but I haven't done it in a long time. It's fun to hear their own ideas about things. I love seeing all their personalities. They're a treasure to me.
What grade will you be in next year?
What do you want to do when you grow up?
Joey: Engineer. I would like to make prototypes of random things that people ask me to make.
Spencer: Pilot. I would want to fly to Ireland because I’ve always wanted to go there. It sounds relaxing, beautiful and fun.
Jocie: Hmmm…I would like to be really good at piano.
Melody: An artist, a babysitter and like in charge of The Pound.
What are you looking forward to most this summer?
Joey: Great Wolf Lodge and my birthday because it’s really fun at the Great Wolf Lodge. For my birthday I want to go to PrimeTime with my friends and play laser tag.
Spencer: The Great Wolf Lodge because Joey told me how fun it was there so I really want to go.
Jocie: Hmmm…Um seeing Grammy for the 2 weeks while you and Poppa go on vacation for your anniversary. You know, that thing you’ve been saving up for.
Melody: swimming and going on vacations
If you could have a super power what would it be? What would your super hero name be?
Joey: I’d like to be able to read minds because it would be funny and you could scare people by doing pranks on them. My name would be BOB.
Spencer: I’d like to be able to read minds because you can know what the person’s about to say and freak them out. I wouldn’t have a super hero name. I would just be super smart.
Jocie: Hmmm…Reading Minds so I can understand what they think so if they’re happy or sad I could try to cheer them up. I would like to know their feelings. My super hero name would be THE THINKER.
Melody: Fly. I know I would have a purple cape. My name would be PURPLE GIRL.
*****Updated: I have an urgent update for you: Melody has changed her mind on her super power. She now wants to be able to blend into walls so if she's being sneaky no one will see her. Also, if she see a bank robbery she will be able to stop them without anyone seeing her. Her new super hero name will be Blender Girl.
If you had unlimited money what is 3 things you would do with it?
Joey: I’d buy a really cool car, buy a laptop and I’d buy an ALAMO Fireworks store
Spencer: I would buy an airplane, buy an island and buy a boat. I would live on the island by myself.
Jocie: Hmmm…I would take our whole family to Disney World including Grammy and Connor. I would make sure everybody has enough money for them to buy all their needs. Like everybody in Africa! For my last thing I think I would like to give Joey a car and a phone.
Melody: I would buy 5 baby puppies. I would buy a DSI and I would adopt a baby.
What is your favorite food?
Spencer: Hawaiian Tomato Soup
Jocie: I really like that stuff at Pizza Inn with the noodles and queso. Oh wait, my favorite food is Ruffles and queso.
What is your least favorite food?
Joey: Fettucini Alfredo. It’s sick.
Spencer: Hamburgers because it has a lot of meat. It’s gross.
Jocie: Spaghetti tacos. I don’t like those things. They’re bad.
Melody: Squash. Squash is sick.
What’s the most fun thing you’ve ever been able to do in your life?
Joey: Go to Six Flags with my friends. We really got to do pretty much anything we wanted to. We voted on most everything. We picked our own restaurant. It was fun. We all liked the same thing pretty much.
Spencer: That’s a hard one. It’s when I got to meet the Texas Rangers because I had no idea that I was going to meet them. I had just come to see Miles at the hospital and I got to meet the Texas Rangers. Also, I loved going to Fredricksburg because I got to be with my family and we got to travel all around Fredicksburg.
Jocie: Ooo…going to Corpus Christi. I loved that place! That was the most fun day of my life! We got to go to the beach and I got a pretty shell. It was so fun. The fun thing was that we got to stay there overnight for like 5 days in hotel. I saw a rusty Jeep.
Melody: Six Flags is scary. Going to Corpus Christi was my favorite. Ooo remember those little baby seats? I made that out of sand one time and I sat in it. The boys almost wrecked it so I had to save it.
