Thank You Notes

I am so grateful and thankful for the service Laura has provided. Her talent and skills are truly appreciated.
I remember the first time we attended, I was so blown away by how amazing she is; able to keep all the kids attention for the full hour! I have seen my daughter grow and excel in so many different ways due in part to her dedication and hard work. Thank you so much. Hands down, Laura is by far the best. And, if you don’t know me, I am a hard core storytimer!
