Hello journey group!! Today was our very FIRST buddy event!! We got to meet our buddies and genuinely get to know them 🙂 Today I got to meet Miss Mary! She was so sweet and active. Seeing her spirit was so uplifting because she was always smiling and laughing! She sort of reminded me of myself as a child! We made up games such as a little twist on tag! My buddy partner Julianne and I would pretend to be sharks chasing or “swimming” after Mary who would try to run so we wouldn’t tag her! It was also nice to just sit and genuinely talk with Mary. We found out that we all shared common interests such as that she loves bananas and animals! She was such a joy to play with and to get to know. I genuinely can’t wait until our next buddy date!
