    Thanks so much for the shout out my friend! I continue to get such great feedback from teachers who use my “You’re Wonderful” as part of their EOY festivities. I’m also thrilled to learn that lots of teachers are using my “Red, White and Blue” with the sign language as they conclude their year, especially if it falls near Memorial Day.

    You’re the best! Can’t wait to see you at FrogStreet SPLASH! Whooop! Whoooop!

    ~~ Debbie
