On March 7th, the Minnesota Force was asked to attend a sendoff party for Ian, a boy who had his Make-A-Wish wish granted: to attend Jedi training at Disney World. These are the types of events that really give me a reason to do what I do. It doesn’t matter how good your costume is or how accurate it is – kids don’t care. To see their faces light up when they see us in costume is worth everything!
Ian was so sweet, and I know he’s going to have a wonderful time! He’ll probably have better Jedi moves than I do when he gets back home.
One of my favorite parts of the event was having a dance party with R2-D2. There was a little girl there who kept dancing with Artoo, and it was so cute.
The family was so grateful to have us there, but I think I was more grateful they asked us to be there! It was just as much fun for us as it was for the kids, I think.
