I just wanted to thank Cracker Country for such a terrific experience at the Homeschool Day... My children had such a wonderful time and did not want to leave. They are already asking when we will be going back. The hands on learning experiences and interpreters talks were just right, not too lengthy and keeping a variety of abilities and attention spans piqued. All of the interpreters were so knowledgeable and friendly. I hope the employees and interpreters found the homeschool families to be pleasant as well. I also found the pricing for entrance and memorabilia items to be very reasonable. A very well spent day--time and money. I would love to know about future Homeschool Days as they become available. Thank you again! Thank you for such a wonderful experience and for a beautiful recreation of Florida life in 1890! -- Patricia
