Hey Journey Group! We just had our first buddy event of the season, and I am so excited! My buddy Will, and buddy partner Will (there’s two of them!) were amazing and so great to play with. We spent the buddy event at a park, had some snow cones, went in a mini water park there, played tag, and all in all had a great time! This being my third buddy, it always surprises me how different each of my buddies are from the previous. Will is so relaxed, yet also very spontaneous about his thoughts and decisions. The event went smoothly and I was able to take a bit of time and become a kid again for a few hours. I think that’s my favorite part of the buddy program, and about spending time with Will. He loved playing pretend and running around, and it brought out my inner child, which I am so grateful for. I can’t wait to get to know Will and Will more this year, and judging by this buddy event, it’s going to be a blast!
