We only have about five more sessions with all of our Ehoops programs. Time is flying by so quickly I can’t believe the program is almost over. Although we will start up even more Ehoops in the next couple of weeks, the hardest part is leaving the past groups behind. I didn’t know how quickly I would be able to build relationships with the Ratherfern girls Ehoops program, but it just clicked a few weeks back.
We had a hilarious Halloween party on Wednesday and the girls loved it. We carved pumpkins, ate donuts off strings, bobbed for apples, and just got to hang out. Three of the girls in particular have become my little group every week. We were talking about Ehoop graduation and what would happen afterwards. I didn’t realize how much they enjoy coming and how they really don’t want the program to end.
The girls said they wouldn’t be back to the university and asked how would they see me. I was taken back that they even would want to see me and didn’t know how to answer. I told them we would have to figure something out and have a reunion. I think there will need to be some sort of check in because this group is what Ehoops is about.
Positively grasping the opportunity of the program and making the right steps to help them. I genuinely look forward to Wednesday, not only for the delicious Four Star pizza, but because I have a great time laughing and talking with these girls.
