Dear Grandpa:

I'm so glad that you're finally comingin three days! It was Christmas yesterday. We put up a beautiful Christmas tree in the living room. I'm sure you'll like it when you see it.

Lily and I drove two hours to Chinatown in New York City yesterday. We bought a lot of Chinese food there. Mom said you would bring us more snacks from Taiwan. I just can't wait!

All of us will go and pick you up at the airport except Dad. He has to see one of his teachers from high school that day, but he will come back and take us to a big dinner in the evening.

During your two-week stay, we are going to take you to England for one week. I've never been there, either. But I'm sure we're going to have fun in this trip.

My mother is always busy. During the day, she sits in front of the computer and writes stories for children. Mom always says that writing is the most important thing in her life. She enjoys it a lot and also gets paid for her writing. That makes her happy because she has three daughters to bring up.

Mom always tries to finish her writing before we get back in the evening. By doing so, she has more time to be with us. Mom loves talking and reading with us, but she hates cooking and cleaning. So we have learned how to do housework since we were very young.

Mom is always busy writing and taking care of us, but she is always smiling. To me, my mother is the most beautiful woman in the world.

John Keats is one of the greatest English poets. He was born in London in 1795 and started studying to be a doctor when he was only fifteen. But after he finished his studies, he gave up the idea of becoming a doctor and decided to be a poet. He wrote and soon became an important poet.

Keats spent the last three years of his life writing a lot of beautiful poems. But he did not have a happy life at that time. In fact, he got seriously sick, and could not get married to the girl he loved. Still, he wrote about love and beautiful things in his poems. These poems have made many sad people happy. One of his famous poems is about fall. In this poem Keats showed his love for this world even in his bad health. Keats died at the young age of twenty-five, but both the poet and his poems will always be remembered.

Mr. Adams works from six in the evening to three in the morning, so he cannot see his daughter Cindy very often. He sometimes writes letters to her. Here is a letter he wrote.

Dear Cindy,

I know you like chatting on the Internet. But many people don't use their real names on the Internet. Some of them even make up stories about themselves. Your Internet friends may be very different from what you think they are. So it could be dangerous for you to go out with them. If, in the future, any of your Internet friends ask you to meet with them, you are welcome to invite them to have dinner with us in our house.

Your mom and I have been very busy these days. We really should spend more time together. How about if we go to Kenting next weekend?

Love,

Dad
