Hey Journey Group! Today was the Meet Your Buddy Event and it was so amazing! The moment I met Michael he ran up to me and gave me a huge hug! My buddy partner, Jaylen and I had been looking forward to meeting him for a long time and it was so awesome to be great friends with Michael right away. We first went to the splash ground, it was chilly and we got wet, but we had a blast. Then we got to go on the playground and even make our own snow cones! Playing with Michael, laughing and being silly with him made me feel like a child again for those few hours. I am filled with joy because of that experience. I cannot wait to get to know Michael throughout the year! In Gratitude, Evey.
