July 26 is Liberia’s Independence Day. Today, Liberians are celebrating their 169th anniversary. At a café in a hotel in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, my mom found commemorative cookies to celebrate Independence Day.

Look! These are cupcakes showing off a national flag. Do you know which country’s national flag it is?
May 12th is my mom’s birthday. Oh, no! I should say, “May 12th is our global mom’s birthday.” She is not a mom only for me anymore; she serves as a global mom for everybody. On her birthday, she would like to send her special thanks to all of her family members on the earth.

Look! My mom knitted this jacket about 20 years ago. She looks “beary” happy in this photo. I am jealous of the two white bears on the jacket.

My mom, Yasuko, the founder of EEN, works as the knowledge management coordinator of EEN. She participated in a training course at MDF in the Netherlands. What impressed her most in the training was the knowledge pyramid. What is it?
In April, my mom, Yasuko, joined a half-day bus tour to go to the Keukenhof Flower Park in the Netherlands. When the bus started moving, the guide began to explain the schedule in English. Guess what happened next?
