“I had a really great time up here in Big Bear and this is the first time I have seen snow. I took pictures but I wanted to take more. On Friday we went skiing it was my first time going skiing and I kept falling down, but I got right back up. I want to go next year it helped me a lot.”
“Oh my God it was so much fun coming here. At first I didn’t think I was going to have fun but I did. I appreciate you guys helping us and communicating with us in different ways”
