"Guess what I did this past weekend?!"
"I rounded up my gang, and we all headed to the Buddy Walk!"
"My gang was much smaller this year, because my Mom said the walk caught her by surprise, but I was happy to have all of these wonderful people to walk with me!"
"Our family looks forward to this day each year! It's a time to get together with lots of other cool kiddos, like me!"
"My brothers get to carry cool signs with pictures of me on it!"
"And, we get to walk with a great bunch of people, who all have something in common.....that they all have a special person in their life who has Down syndrome, just like me!"
"My brothers get to fight over who gets to push the guest of honor.....that's me!"
"I get to just smile and look cute, while I meet some really great people!"
"Here are a few of those great people. They did a dance that they learned in their dance group."
"It was so much fun to watch, and it was even more fun when they called us out to dance with them!"
"Here is me and my Grandma dancing! I loved it!.....Probably because I LOVE music so much! Plus, my Grandma is a great dancer!"
"I can't wait for next year's Buddy Walk! Thanks to everyone for coming out to support our family and other awesome people just like me!"
Here is the verse that we have on our team shirts:
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119:105
