Dear Family and Friends,
The first week was awesome, but our second week has been even better! Bonds between the group have grown stronger and we celebrated our first two (of many) birthdays. This week, we have worked at UCP (a camp for kids with mental and developmental disabilities), the Boy’s and Girl’s Club, and got our hands dirty in the Illinois State Community Garden. Many of these experiences tired everyone out, leading to a lot of naps in the car. Although these experiences may have been tiring, they certainly were eye-opening and loads of fun. Fortunately, this is just the beginning and we are all looking forward to the many service opportunities and fun adventures that are coming our way this summer.
