Jon and Erin, tell us a little more about yourselves. Starting with an easy one…What is your favorite cereal?
Erin: Hands down, Lucky Charms! It’s a perfect balance between marshmallows and cereal, but mostly I like it because it reminds me of my Grandpa. He always used to buy it for my sister and me when we were little.
John: I like unhealthy fruity cereal or chocolate cereal! So Coco Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, Captain Crunch! You get the point.
Were either of you named after anyone?
Erin: Not anyone in my family. My mom would come home every day from work when she was pregnant with me and watch a TV show called The Waltons. There was both an Erin and an Elizabeth on the show. She liked the names and named me Erin Elizabeth. So I guess I’m named after The Waltons.
Jon: No, I was not. My full name is Jonathan Paul Lester, and because I go by Jon, people called me “Pope” because of Pope John Paul. My mom actually wanted to name me Abraham, but my older brother came into the delivery room asking where little Jon was!
Which season is your favorite and why?
Erin: I love both Summer and Fall. I really like summer because of how much time you can spend outside and swimming! Also I love to be warm! Fall is such a great season with the crisp air, leaves changing colors, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Also, since the new school year begins in fall, it reminds me of beginnings and fresh starts (which I love). The only drawback to fall is that winter comes after it.
Jon: It is a toss up between Fall and Winter. I love the cool to colder weather! I love doing activities outdoors and not getting to hot from them! Mostly, I love the holiday season and the traditions that I have with my family!
