It is Christmas cookie season!!!! I love making Christmas cookies! I think they are a wonderful thing to eat and they go straight to your hips. But they are worth it! I will be the first to admit this was a huge undertaking here in South Korea. At first, I thought I would bake the cookies alone and then I decided to make them with a friend.

Goodbye Okgye Elementary Grade 6-2

I am so thankful that I can read them and enjoy their compliments. I’m even more surprised to know they enjoyed my class and had fun. As a first year teacher with no experience and no help it is such a high praise. I received 14 letters from my class and I plan to translate all of them so I can share with family and friends.  For now though I will just share the ones that have some English in them to share with those who follow my blog.
