Long Island Walk

Team J.O.G.


Welcome to team J.O.G.

Joey, Owen and George are three remarkable boys who crossed paths at The Hagedorn Little Village School. They became classmates back in September of 2018. Shortly after that we realized these boys would be friends for life!

Joey is a curious, active 3 year old that loves to make his mom, dad and big sister laugh. He loves to sing songs and dance to his YouTube videos. Joey loves to get messy and explore the world around him. He is always “on the go” and keeps life interesting! We are so lucky to have Joey, he has taught us about patience and that family is the most important thing in life!

Owen loves to run around and dance!!! He never seems to run out of energy. He loves to challenge himself with puzzles and stackable toys. He has quite an appetite as well. He loves the water and can swing for hours. He prefers to spend his days outside playing on his swing set, going for bike rides and taking his scooter around the block. Everyday day is a new adventure for Owen can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!

George is a charismatic 3 year old boy whose smile can light up the room. He loves the beach, being outdoors, watching his Disney movies, and has been a busy traveler in the past 3 1/2 years. He is a sweet boy who loves to give hugs and kisses. He has taught us what patience, overcoming obstacles and what true love really is. We know that George will have some challenges ahead of him but we are optimistic with the help of teachers, friends and family that he will continue to take steps forward and make great strides.
