This post is for Jill, Lynne, my Mom, and Adrian...
So one of the biggest influences I have been on these children, aside from trying to teach them English, compassion, and manners is... introducing them to new music.
I downloaded the Soulja Boy video on my iPod, knowing that it is huge right now in the States, and the kids instantly fell in love with the silly song as well. Here is Fery- aka Soulja Boy- with his hat, towel, and shades with writing (or in this case stickers) on them. He has also become an expert at the dance, as he studies the video.
He writes Soulja Boy on his schoolwork, and answers to that name. I love these kids!
