Today was the first buddy even at Veterans Park. My buddy partner Maddie and I met our buddy Zoe. She is vivacious, funny, and has amazing hair. We had tons of fun playing in the splash park, but Zoe liked swinging the best. Maddie and I sang songs with her as she swung, laughing and singing along. The first event was so much fun, and I’m looking forward to building a relationship with Zoe. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be Zoe’s friend. In just one short day, she has taught me so much about being present and enjoying every moment. Zoe was friendly to everyone and open to doing different things. We all had a great time. I hope that the next time I see Zoe, we have just as much fun!
