11-year old Ava said, "All the kids here really love and it was really fun because we didn't really have to do any research this time, it was mostly just what we felt."

14-year old Mia added, "I like it with a lot of people because there's a lot more ideas and it's really fun, I'm really lucky to have all these wonderful neighbors."
