Things are different for kids today, largely because of the internet. Do kids at school still give each other Valentine’s cards or do they just swipe right on each other? What do kids know about love, anyway? We at The Chronicle aren’t real sure… But we wanted to know! So we sat down with two very bright young boys to find out! Interviewed for this Chronicle project were: 4-year-old twins Cannon and Brooks Dixon. They are the sons of Bridget and Chesley Dixon. Their grandparents are Andy and Teresa Dixon of Swainsboro and T.J. and Kathy Dixon of Metter, and they have two brothers, Cooper and Paxton.
