Today was the first buddy event of the year! It was the day before school started and I was feeling a little stressed before arriving. My buddy’s name is Zach and he is so fun and energetic! We started playing on the splash park and I forgot all about my stress for the time being. My buddy really helped me realize that I should let loose and just have fun. I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with him every month. I think from now on when I am choosing stress I am going to remember this day and let go for a while.
