Homework for Christmas
The teacher gave homework for Christmas.
We thought it must be a mistake.
She smiled when she said this assignment
would take up our whole winter break.
Before we return from vacation
we have to make sure it gets done.
It seems that our teacher must like us.
Our homework assignment? Have fun!
