Andrew turns SIX.

Today is Andrew’s sixth birthday. All week he has been getting gifts from me. Today I took a balloon to his class weighted down with Hershey chocolate bars, which he loves. Here are some pictures from the class room. His mother had brought cookies to class and Andrew distributed them to his classmates. And everyone sang the birthday song to him.


It was too frikkin’ cute!

The kids had written a story about pigeons. Andrew read his story out loud so his classmates and his Ammi (moi) could hear it!



I am telling you, it was just too adorably cute for words.

His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Happy belated birthday to Andrew!

  9. It’s great that they allow parents and relatives into the classroom. I don’t think they did that when I was his age. And I bet Andrew writes better stories than I do. πŸ™‚

    oh gosh. all the attention he is getting. i would be alarmed to be getting such attention in public, especially in front of class mates. i never did was the centre of attention, nor did i wanted one. then again, different time, different culture, different personality. but at least from the pictures he seemed to enjoy it πŸ™‚
