Team of the Week- Eric's Orange Elephants! This will be Eric’s sixth year attending the Step-up walk. It is always a good time with friend and family. He may know a few more faces this year since we’ve made the trip from Topeka to KC quite frequently to attend various DSG events. Eric is a super busy kid with never ending curiosity whose kindness is sure to put a new spark in anyone he touches. He’s just started 1st grade and adjusting to the higher expectations pretty well! As you can see, this little dude doesn’t have much that he’s not up for! Stop and say hi if you see us at the walk!
