Wednesday's Child - Kaleb
by Kevin Sims
Even under the neon lights inside Sir Gooney's, 8-year-old Kaleb's personality shines through. He grins from ear to ear as he spins around in the bumper cars time and time again. His laugh is infectious.
Kaleb is a 3rd grader and a smart one at that. He likes language classes, wants to be a lawyer someday and still remembers his lines from February, when he portrayed Nat Turner during Black History Month. "I led the rebellion in the march on Washington in the month of August," he recites from memory. "Each of these events were note-worthy efforts of African-Americans to better our race. I am Nat Turner."
But for the time being, he's just a kid looking for a big brother. When asked why, he responds, "because you can have a lot of fun with them and you won't get bored." One thing's for sure. You won't get bored spending time with Kaleb. It takes just 4 to 6 hours a month, but you'll likely want more.
And with the right co-pilot, he'll stay on the right path. As Kaleb steers his video game car through a fast-paced course, he breaks out laughing about the time he got behind a real wheel. "This is just like real driving!" Kaleb says. NewsChannel 9's Kevin Sims can't help but ask the obvious question, "How would you know?" "Because when I was four years old I accidentally backed my granny's car out of the driveway," Kaleb says chuckling.
These days, he sticks to bicycles and he just joined the running team at school. "I'm on the track team," Kaleb boasts. "I run track."
He is smart, engaging and entertaining and by the end of our game time, he has racked up a whole pile of tickets. Now if he could only cash them in for a big brother.
