I just wanted to tell you how much _______ loved Myka’s presentation today. Despite how quiet she was at the gate she talked non-stop all the way home about the animals she got to see and touch and all the interesting facts she learned. She was thrilled with it. She said the presentation was 45 minutes but felt like 10!
Thank _________ please! It was a great idea to have her in!
Have a great weekend!
