Just after Aaron passed away I was up at his school dropping off his school keys and collected his belongings from his desk at school. They had been packed up into a box and I had a quick look through when I got it home, but it had been sitting in the garage until today. This was actually Aaron's desk a few years ago. He always had his desk covered in things that he loved - pictures of us, sports schedules, and Hawthorn. Last year Aaron made sure his desk was facing out a window into the hall, so he could see the students walking past. He used to love having things all over the windows, and also his desk.
It made me cry but also smile when I found his staff ID tags. He always made sure he wore Hawks colours (even if it was just a tie) on school photo day. The photo of him with his Hawks scarf and geurnsey always makes me laugh. I totally thought he was joking that he was going to wear it for his school photo, but obviously he wasn't!
He loved laminating photos and posters and putting them on his desk.
loved this group that left school a couple of years ago as he was their grade leader for a couple of years. He was really sad the day they left, and I actually remember picking him up after school and he started crying as he felt so sad that they were leaving.
take Noah to the chiropractor without them. We used to love seeing his desk and what he had done to it (especially when he had decorated it with Christmas decorations during December, including Hawthorn tinsel). It's so hard to believe that his desk now belongs to someone else.
