    Hi, Christopher. My name is Marie and I am a friend of Courtney’s. I just read your blog and found it to be very interesting. Sounds like you are a great student and have goals, which is a great thing for a boy your age. You mentioned you were now on holidays, does that mean no school for awhile? How long is your holiday and do you have fun plans? Keep up the good work and keep blogging!

  2. Hi Christopher, It was so good to meet you and spend time with you when I visited last month. I think of all of you every day. It’s good to see your grades. I noticed lots of improvements from the first to second term. Nice job! I also enjoyed the trip Debbie and I made to the Chagga caves and waterfall. I found the history fascinating and the waterfall beautiful. I didn’t know you enjoyed the guitar… maybe you’ll play something for me when I return next winter. Keep up the great work!
