Josh's Little Brother




For the past 4 weeks I have been participating in the Lunch Buddies Program with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Shoals. Each Tuesday I go to Weeden Elementary in Florence, Al and eat lunch with Brian Dickinson. He is a 1st grader there. It has been a great experience. Brian is a great kid. We get along really well. Today was neat because before I left he gave me a big hug. I can tell he really enjoys me visiting him. I think all of his classmates are jealous he has a 'Big Brother'. If you can squeeze it into your schedule . . . I would really encourage you do sign up!

Could we send Brian something? Do you know when his birthday is? Or does he need anything? Love you Josh. Mama

They discourage giving him stuff. They don't want him to think he will get stuff everytime I come. They said on special occassions we can give them stuff. The sad part is this summer he started a fire in his family home and it burnt down.
