They walk home in the afternoon.

The children are attending second grade at a school one kilometers away from home. Tinh takes them in twos on a bicycle to school every morning. All four walk home in the afternoon.

The girls are well-behaved, keen to learn, and friendly. They are bubbly, cheerfully running around all the time, she said.

"At first, I had a hard time distinguishing the four. It took a while for me to be able to tell them apart by their personalities," Lan said. "The girls are well-behaved, keen to learn, and friendly. "They are bubbly and cheerful, running around all the time."

Phuc (right) and Nam revise their lessons before class commences. The girls attend both morning classes and afternoon ones.

The girls’ favorite pastime is swimming in the channel in front of their house. Our dad taught us how to swim at 5 so we can swim very well, Hanh says cheerily. Tinh said that even she and her husband mistake one girl for another all the time. As time goes by, we’re gradually able to make them out by moles, skin tones, voices, she said.
