Happy Birthday Mom! - from Me and Sweet 6A

I wish I had kept this video running just a bit longer because Peter, third from the right, jumped at the camera and said "Please make us a pie!" as an afterthought. A few weeks ago, we read a story that had a cherry pie in it and I found that none of them knew what pie was. So I googled a bunch of pictures of all kinds of pie - apple, blueberry, pumpkin, banana - and told them that my mom makes the best pie in the world. So now they often ask, "Is your mother coming to Viet Nam? If she does, will she make us a pie?"

So no pressure, mom, but when you come next year, you need to make pies for this sweet class of mine. The castle doesn't have an oven, so you will have to be creative.

That's right...my brother was my mom's birthday present some years ago. Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Hooray for my Mom! Famous around the globe and even with 6C! (It's a very prestigious club; welcome aboard!)

And Marjie, you know what my favorite part of that video was for me? Hearing you laugh in the background. Made me miss you all the more.

Brian, you are getting all of my students mixed up. This is 6A. 6C wished you a happy birthday and know you from your translations. 6E introduced themselves to you as gods and goddesses. You don't think they all look the same, do you?

Anyway, back to Mom...

From now on I'm calling them all 6x (because they are all Xtra special).
