I see you have American Girl dolls. Do they have names?
S This is Rebecca
C This one's Julie.
S And this one's Kanani. She's Hawaiian.

Do you share them?
S
Yes, we usually share everything.

Do you two go to school together?
S
No, Coco didn't get into my school. There were too many people in kindergarten.

Saatchi, what do you want to be when you grow up?
S
I don't really know, but I was thinking about being a dentist.

That requires a lot of schooling. Do you like school?
S
Sort of...sometimes.

What's your favorite thing to do in school, Coco?
C
Make sculptures.

What are you sculpting?
C
Animals.
S Coco, stop playing with that balloon! Tell her what you're sculpting.
C I'm sculpting an ostrich.

Have you ever seen one of those in real life?
S
No, but we've seen ostrich eggs in the farmers' market.
C They're humongous!
