36 Mr Seibert, Thank you for your note I already told Pedro. I'm happy to hear that he is doing fine. He is a good boy and sometimes his effort is taken for granted. He loves to play strategy games and some of the games have a lot of History involved, but he thought that because they were games it wasn't real, so when you began teaching about Rome and some other cultures, and everything was the same, he was astonish because he knew what was next. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year. Sincerely. Maribel Oar HOLA MR. SEIBERT: (Hello Mr. Seibert) ¡POR FIN!
