A Quick Note (in Spanish)--thank goodness for Google Translate!

Saturday came and went with no letter from Ben. We thought that since we got to Skype with him on Mother's Day the week before, that perhaps his P-Day had been moved or that we would not hear from him that week at all. About the time that we were accepting the fact that there might not be a letter, this arrived in our email on Tuesday.

Les escribo mas tarde hoy. Disculpes por haberles esperado.

I had to go to Google Translate to find out what he was saying. Loosely translated it says:  "I will write later today. Sorry for the delay." 

I think that Ben forgot who he was sending this quick note off to and just did what came naturally--he typed it in Spanish. We got a good laugh out of this and were happy to know that his letter would be arriving later that day. I will post his letter next.
