Hi Tyler and Gayle,
Thank you for teaching the Red Cross Babysitting class that was held at the HR library [yesterday]. Annika and Kersti really enjoyed it and said you were both great. They are now confident and can't wait to babysit. They've already taken business cards to neighbors and are proud that they are Red Cross certified. I think it makes a big difference to parents as
well. They already have a job lined up for next week.
Thanks again and best regards,
