"When I pick up at the end of the day Kate, she never talks about school, soccer, or any other camp. This week was different every day I picked her up she was happy, dirty, and on the drive home she was eager to tell me every detail about her day; dinner was the same, telling everyone the same stories right up to a point of her falling asleep as she was eating."
—Mother of Kate
