Hey Journey Group! Today was our ImaginOn Buddy event! My Buddy Partner, Anna, and I with our Buddy, Thomas, got to explore ImaginOn and just play. We did many things like playing a giant Connect 4 game and building towers with foam blocks. While playing I saw how much that I have grown with my Buddies. During my first year, I was very nervous with my Buddy, Matthew I was unsure that I would actually be able to connect with Matthew and he didn’t always want to do the events. But over time I was able to open my mind and see how similar he was to kids I knew in my life. By opening my mind, I was able to establish a better relationship with Matthew which I now see reflected in my relationship with Thomas. I am so grateful for these relationships which have opened my mind and changed my life
