LOVED IT! Miss Rhonda, Trinity Lutheran Preschool
Thanks Jo – that was the best birthday party.
You did a fabulous job. The kids were so
engaged and really enjoyed the whole thing. It
is quite the buzz. The children of the
superintendent of our school district were there
(the boy was the lion and the girl was one of
your winkies) and their mom stayed and watched
it and she is a teacher in Louisburg. They were
very impressed as was everyone.
Thank you again – you are wonderful,
