"Thank you for your patience, leadership, and grace with all of our noisy children. They absolutely loved the class. For the rest of the day, they were picking flowers, declaring what they were, and eating them out of the backyard - even teaching neighbor friends about it. Thank you for the great investment you make in passing on history and Native American culture and traditions. We are excited and grateful to learn more." - H.D. 

"We love the work you do and want to thank you for a great summer of Children’s Hours! Thanks for being such a valuable resource for our state." - B.V.
