This is Julianna and Team Cupcake's 4th annual Buddy Walk with F.R.I.E.N.D.S.!
A few updates about Julianna--
Our Little Cupcake turned 3 in February!
Julianna started pre-school at Urbana Elementary back in February and she LOVES it! Her favorite part of course is riding the bus.
Julianna took swimming lessons at KidsFirst earlier this year. She looked forward to it each week. It has helped her with her confidence at the pool this summer compared to last year but she's not quite ready to attempt the water slide at the baby pool. She gets to the top and then changes her mind and comes back down!
Julianna had a great time camping with her family at Camp Jellystone in the Spring. This girl loves to camp!
Her newest hobby is fighting over toys with her sister Maria! Ahh Sisterly Love!
This summer, "J" has been having fun picking the red cherry tomatoes from Daddy's garden on our deck and eating them fresh picked off the vine. YUM!
She also visited her great-grandparents on Cape Cod, attended a few fun birthday parties, and rode her first kiddie rides at the Urbana Fair this summer!
Does any of this sound familiar? Julianna may have Down syndrome but she is "more alike than different." People with Down syndrome like to have fun! They also cope with everyday challenges and have hopes and dreams just like you and me.
Come celebrate Julianna and all people with Down syndrome with us at the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Buddy Walk on September 20th!
The event this year is from 10am to 2pm. Check-in/Registration opens at 9:00 am. Walk begins at 12:00 pm. When you check-in/register, you will receive your tee shirt(s).
The approx. one mile/one-block walk begins and ends at the band shell in Baker Park.
