Feedback from Past Participants


Thank you again for showing the girls such a great time!  They really did have so much fun (even the ones that were skeptical).

I wanted to share with you and all of the moms that the hot discussion in the car on the way back was who would be doing what when they open their own restaurant (that they will run out of someone's back yard on weekends or during the summer). 

They were dead serious--to the point that there was some serious (good-natured) arguing about the details, where the funding would come from, and that the younger siblings would have to help since they realized it would take more than 5 people to get this restaurant up and running. 

It was stressing me out a bit, but I was glad to see them making the kinds of plans that do set wheels in motion--which will help in all of their future careers!  We will be sure to invite you to any restaurant grand opening when it happens.

Thanks again!
