First-Graders Who Became Best Friends While Distance Learning Meet in Person
A Las Vegas elementary schooler got the ultimate birthday surprise when she was finally able to meet her best friend in person after a year spent getting to know one another behind a computer screen. Julia McClain, 7, became fast friends with fellow Ober Elementary first-grader Luna six months ago when they first met while distance learning. So when Julia recently celebrated her birthday, her mother Lisa McClain had the perfect gift in mind: letting her daughter finally meet Luna in person at the park. The sweet moment was captured on video and shows an elated Julia sprinting toward her friend before wrapping her in a hug and jumping up and down with glee.
