Were We Ever?

Best Surprise Ever

Kip

Kip was a student at Grant High and apparently a member of the football and baseball teams.

Chinese New Year

Ronald

Ronald is Andi's second cousin. He visits Celia and Ham's house for Chinese New Year. He is obsessed with magic tricks, and tries some out on Andi and Jonah.
