Today we had our first buddy event and I finally got to meet my buddy Sean! We had so much fun playing in the splash park, as Sean LOVES water. He would go around to each fountain and stick his face in it, and then move on to the next one. At first I was a little nervous, worried he wouldn’t like me or wouldn’t have fun. But Sean’s way of sharing love is pointing at you, so when he pointed at Cole and me as we were all playing in the water, I knew I had nothing to worry about. I was having a blast, and I could tell Sean was too! He had a permanent smile on his face, and his excitement about everything, especially the water, reminded me to just enjoy the moment and celebrate the little things in life. Cole and I work so well together, and we’re already starting to figure out what Sean likes, as well as his signals and forms of communication. Thanks Sean for a great day and I can’t wait for the rest of this year!
