Today is Asta's first birthday! Happy birthday, sweetie!!
My new buddy Ruby is coming to pick me up on the way to the party. Don't tell my mom, because Asta lives all the way in NYC! It's a cowboy party, so it should be a rootin' tootin' good time! I put on my best pair of chaps. I don't mind dressing up if it's for a birthday party.
Asta, my mom said there are signs all over her school that say JOIN ASTA! I thought maybe all of the music students there were invited to your party too. But they actually have their own ASTA club! It stands for the American String Teachers Association, but obviously you (and Asta down under) were their inspiration.
